    USMS member swims 104+ miles without stopping

    Thought I'd just leave this here.... recently published article by former USMS Associate Editor Elaine Howley, about the world-record 104.6 mile swim in Lake Champlain by Colorado Masters swimmer Sarah Thomas.

    My favorite sentence, recalling last year's 81 mile swim across Lake Powell ..........."But even though she had swum for more than two-and-a-half days, it was clear that Thomas, who gave a victory jump at the finish, still had more gas in the tank."

    She's freaking amazing! Met her briefly at Swim the Suck this year and she was very humble and interesting to listen to. What a beast!
