I've been following this woman for years, even though I am a terrible swimmer. I adhere to her fierce standard of setting goals and doing what needs to be done to get there. Watching her walk ashore on Key West today via CNN livestream was otherworldly and affirming. Maybe even enough to get me back on Cascade before the end of the season, once I've checked off Lone Peak and Provo Peak.
I want to live the way she subscribes to living.
I want to remember, but to never let the past find its way to my skin.
