"Swimming is a way to quantify your life. You can see how you compare to what you did a year or two ago, or 20 or 30 years ago."

I swam in high school and college (under Doc Counsilman). After a 10 year break I found Masters and have been training and competing since 1976. The commitment has allowed me to improve to the point where I have set a bunch of FINA Masters World Records and was honored with induction into the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame.

BIO: RICHARD BURNS

I have been swimming Masters continuously for 45 years. While driven by the competition, I have seen the results of training's health benefits. A few years ago I battled bladder cancer. Doctors credited my fitness as a key to beating it. P2Life was a godsend through my recovery. I lost 20 pounds and the NutriBoost was my go-to meal through a long period of having no appetite. I like it, I trust it and I am sure it is a part of my athletic accomplishments.
