Posted by coachlisa on April 15, 2011

Congrats to our latest Mermaid to be in the Spotlight!

Susan Sandoval took the leap to sign up for a triathlon and since joining the Women First swimming group this winter session has made great strides (or strokes!) to improving.

The coaches love how much Susan expresses her new found love for swimming now and shares her smile with the mermiads every Saturday morning. Read more here.

If you are considering joining for the first time, read our Testimonials from veteran mermaids to get an idea of how Austin women have enjoyed and benefited from the Women First Swimming program.  If you have feedback or a testimonial about your recent class experience we’d love to hear more from you – just send Lisa or Coach Sara an email.

We’re also on Facebook so feel free to add yourself to the group so our Facebook posts show up on your Facebook feed or to share the program with your friends and colleagues.
