Wow is right! But, I must say, I was very intrigued when I heard about this and turned to my husband and said, "I will following THIS swim!"
I was (and still am) a big fan of Lynn Cox, an OW distance swimmer who broke all sorts of amazing swim records, from swimming up in the Arctic to swimming the English Channel. I grew up on the beach, in Long Beach, California, watching her do her ocean swims and run for miles in the soft sand, when she was just a young teenager and I was a kid. I always admired her and loved the two books she wrote about her experiences. I treasure my autographed copies.
I remember Diana Nyad, too, because I was on the high school swim team when she was in her prime. I always wondered what happened to her... Now I know and I'm excited! Go Diana!!
