161. Rose Filer On Marathon Swimming, Completing The California Triple Crown and Swimming The English Channel

Rose Filer is a long distance open water swimmer and former Division 1 Rower at the University of Washington. After graduating from college, Rose’s sister convinced her to sign up for a half Ironman, and her passion for swimming began. Now she is gearing up to complete her final stage of the three California Triple Crown swims in Lake Tahoe this July 2021,  and is planning  up to swim The English Channel in 2022.

On this episode of Marni on the Move, I sync up with Rose about her incredible accomplishments and goals. Rose shares her thirst for adventure, and the lessons she’s learned while training for such intense events. We do a deep dive into the world of long distance, open water, cold water swimming, the training, nutrition, sights, and sea creatures along the way.

I definitely ask Rose lots of questions about swimming at night, sharks, jelly fish, trip planning and get the scoop on some of her greatest adventures. Rose shares the mantras and tools she uses to hone her mental strength, why she loves long distance swimming,  and some of the life lessons she has learned out at sea and in the water.

Rose also takes us back to her early competitive skiing days, her experiences with as a D1 Rower and disordered eating as a college athlete, and how overcoming that made her a tougher, stronger athlete. And, it wouldn’t be a true Marni on the Move episode if I didn’t talk about fashion and coffee, which turns out, Rose really loves too!
