Ok, so for those of you not in LA or Florida, one of the hosts on KCRW (the big NPR affliate / alternative music station), decided at the age of 61 to revisit a record swimming attempt that eluded her back in the 70's.
She's swimming for 60 hours to go 103 miles from Havana to Key West. She still holds the record for open ocean swimming -102 miles from Bimini to Florida. (set in 1979)The StoryLive Tracking Map
All I can say is 60 hours? 60? There's nothing in this world I could do for 60 hours straight. Nothing. Not even sitting - let alone swimming through shark infested waters.
