On Hurricanes and Mammoths

Mob Log Ber Kp 104It’s been a while since I last posted something and I’m not positive that my time with the Swiss Army is a great excuse. I did have a few ideas for new content during the last weeks and started working on several of them. But I have to admit that life in the army is different and writing wasn’t always a top priority. So for now an update on what I’ve been up to this summer before reporting to the Swiss Army and some things that happened during that time.

I’ve been assigned to a troop called “Mob Log Ber Kp 104-1” or simply the Mammoths. Compared to my first experience with the Swiss Army I did have a better time but I’m glad it’s over now. We still had to go through some training but it was more specific to the mission we had to accomplish during those weeks.

There’s really not much more I can share with you other than the news that put a smile on my face during the time with the Swiss Army…so keep reading for some swimming related news.

FKSC Summer of Coaching

This summer I’ll be heading to the Florida Keys once again.  Only this time, the main purpose for my visit won’t be my personal swimming but the swimming of the Florida Keys Swim Club athletes. I’m going to do some coaching along with Mark Hill, head coach of the FKSC.

My plane ticket is already booked and my flight is leaving on Sunday, June 14 from Zurich Airport. I’m looking forward to a great summer in the Keys and learning from Mark’s experiences and hopefully bring some of my personal experience to the team. If some of you are in the area, please let me know and we’ll try to meet up and have some fun.
