We can’t think of a single person who has had a more positive impact on swimming for sport and recreation than Terry. Lake Minnewaska, his most frequent jaunt, appeared often on his blog and for many of the members of the Minnewaska Distance Swimmers Association, Terry’s enthusiasm and generosity inspired a deeper (the pun!) relationship with open water.
