“I really want to give you guys a VERY LARGE THANK YOU for all the help that I received from you, especially on Monday nights, I tried 3 other tri’s before today, the swim’s were all the same; panic, frustration and hanging on to whatever I could. Fortunately, I was introduced to Experience Triathlon at the ET Batavia Tri and been swimming with you since and have learned more about tri swimming in 9 weeks then in the previous 10 years. Today’s swim at the ET Naperville Triathlon was great… no panic, no frustration, no hanging on, just swimming. Without your help, I would not have been there today. I’m already planning my next triathlon. THANK YOU AGAIN. Please pass this on to Coach Suzy, Coach Cathy, Coach Joe and Coach Jim.” – Gary H.
