Going the distance in pain

Former Salisbury Beach lifeguard Dobrosielski wins national title

(Continued)

“After one race, I couldn’t believe this was happening,” Dobrosielski said. “Over the next 24 to 48 hours, the self-care and inspiration of the other athletes on the team gave me hope of doubling back by the end of the weekend.”

Dobrosielski’s experience has put the wheels in motion for a potential second book. First, he plans to visit his alma mater, Governor’s Academy, this fall for a Going the Distance clinic. He also plans to start a scholarship fund for potential Governor’s Academy students who are in need of financial assistance.
