Ron Johnson - Fit for Life
At 74, Ron is still swimming and active. He has contributed in many different areas of swimming, from equipment design, to coaching, to writing, and mentoring. Most importantly though, he does so with a smile and with fun in mind.
No doubt we will see Ron at upcoming meets well into the future. His recovery from heart surgery is going well and he is training hard again. Look for more records to fall and more contributions to swimming from Ron.

Hint to Coaches: Have your teams swim this as a workout on a Saturday in January...
This is a great event to get behind. Heck, even die-hard sprinters can swim a mile (when they have to).
We will all see changes in the coming weeks on the website so be sure you check-in from time to time.
