  • Swab Summer to Swimming in the Thames - Twarog November 2015
    no freshman orientation here Not only this but with the return of the Corps of Cadets you re faced with the challenge of learning the names and faces of each member of your company there are more than 100 cadets in each company With all of this stress one needs an outlet For me this outlet was racing for the Academy s Triathlon Team Before coming to the U S Coast Guard Academy earlier this year I competed as a road cyclist on the Elm City Velo Cycling Team out of Keene New Hampshire Primarily I raced longer road races 40 65 mile races and hill climbs Simply put I love riding and I didn t want to give it up when I came here This was partially the reason why I decided to join the USCGA s Triathlon Team Even beyond this the Triathlon Team here operates similarly to my old cycling team each racer decides on which races they want to do and they can tailor their training to those races In other words the team offers you a lot of freedom in setting your own athletic goals It s the type of setting that I thrive in I ll be honest There aren t any other teams at the USCGA like the Triathlon Team This is part of the thrill of being on the team A few memories that stand out from this season include Sleeping on the floor of a training room at the Portland Small Boat Station in Maine Swimming in the Thames as the sailing and crew teams looked at us like we were out of our minds Sitting on the side of the road in the cold for an hour in soaked spandex while I waited for my ride back to the start
