Mermaid Spotlight: Sarah Pruiett — The Decadent Mermaid

Posted by coachlisa on May 31, 2012

In honor of our most dedicated and longtime swimming mermaid Sarah Pruiett — who has been with Women First swimming for a decade and is recovering from back surgery right now — we’ve featured her as our latest Mermaid Spotlight.


Sarah has been there at almost every Saturday morning session for the last 10 years — whether there has been rain, snow or sunshine — and always bringing her smile and encouragement to every fellow mermaid trying to master swimming.

Don’t miss Sarah’s Mermaid Spotlight interview here. We welcome your comments and well wishes to Sarah in her journey to recovery. Thank you Sarah for being an inspiration — all the mermaids look forward to seeing your smiling face and optimistic spirit in the pool again soon!
