From Carleton Swim Coach, Craig Johnson

September 18, 2006 at 11:47 am

When Ted returned to the swim team his junior year he met the team at UC Irvine for our December training trip. The first day Ted wanted to do it all. His passion for swimming and training hard had not been phased by his several months of cancer treatment. Ted's mind and heart were ready to tackle it all and swim the 6000 yard workout on the first day. I had a tough negotiation session with Ted for a modified workout, as the rest of the team had been swimming daily for two months. Ted had been getting treatment, but he had not been well enough to swim for quite a while. We were able to come up with a gradual reintroduction to workouts that I think was a healthy and reasonable amount.

Ted wanted it ALL and he wanted it NOW-- and was willing to work for it. He was and still is an inspiration to his teammates and coaches alike.
