Swim Club — Not Bound to the Pool

The club held its first CofC Club Swim Sprint Triathlon in what was termed “a true urban fitness experience”.  Seven of the strongest female swimmers faced down this challenge by running the 3.2 miles from the Battery to their practice center at the MLK pool where they completed a 1/2 mile swim and finished with a 12 mile bike ride around Hampton Park.

Another fun club activity the members enjoy is a regular training session in the ocean.  Having lost the on-campus pool, the club initiated a change that is quite impressive.  At the crack of dawn, the swim club rolls up to Folly Beach for a mile run down the beach coupled with a brisk 500-meter swim.  Don’t forget the quick stop at the Dunkin’ Donuts on the ride home and all individuals are back in class by 9:00 a.m.  Now that is a wonderful way to jump start your mornings.
