We're all in a marathon now. Learn how to endure, adapt and persevere from marathon swimmers. Since COVID-19 closed down our pools and the 2020 open water swim season ceased, marathon swimmers near and far started to gather online. Just a few of us at first, lamenting the shut down, finding solace in each others company. Then we started hosting guests. We talk about swims past, swims that we're missing, and how to slog it out in swimming and in life.
