Thank you Dara Tores

Maybe it's a fluke that I'm reading "Age is just a number" right now when I am spending a lot of my non-running time in the pool. The book tarnished the high regard I hold for Dara Tores but then again, all autobiographies are egocentric and perhaps that egocentricity is what divides Olympians and the common woman....among a long list of other things. I read something about her stroke that made me experiment in the pool today. Fastest 1/2 mile I ever swam and I really wasn't trying. Want to know the secret.....read the book.
