When COVID-19 hit and the pools and shorelines closed as a result, open water swimming coach and mentor Shannon House Keegan took to the internet. Keegan saw the parallel between the tumultuous times of a marathon swim and the pandemic, she decided to catalog the ways that marathon swimmers endure, adapt, and overcome in her new Marathon Swim Stories program. More than just a podcast, Marathon Swim Stories is a place for like minded limit pushers to connect. If you can’t make the weekly calls, watch on YouTube (CC), or subscribe to the podcast and take it with you. Whether you’re a seasoned marathon swimmer, aspiring marathon swimmer, or just intrigued, we’re all in a marathon pandemic now! Perhaps something can be learned from these remarkable endurance athletes. If the stories are too long, check out Marathon Swim Shorts!
