Open Water Swimming Career[edit]

Gords Swim Log[edit]

In 1988, his high school swim coach, Robyn Masters, encouraged Gridley to keep a log of his swims, and ever since then he has done just that. He started with a notebook, and over the years converted those handwritten workouts on to his blog where he continues to log workouts, adventures, and personal rants about open water swimming.
