    That's an amazing feat! The jellyfish stings alone must have been brutal. She looked totally dazed coming out of the water.

    She is 64 and had just swam 103 miles. I look dazed after walking to the mailbox and back. <>

    I'm humbled by this lady, especially considering we are the same age.
