5) Woman breaks swimming world record (including the men's record): Pretty cool video showing the record attempt from the island of Lanai to Maui and back….including a small visit from sharks.

I used to use my simple $20 sports watch for this purpose…until I killed it while diving with Great White Sharks.

Despite the concerns of great white sharks lurking just beyond the break, this particular stretch of beach is nice and shallow – making it such that I could easily walk almost the entire route I swam, save a short spot where they’ve towed a floating platform for kids to jump off.

Hello Australia! I’m crashing your country through March!

www.dcrainmaker.com/2018/01/hello-australia-im-crashing-your-country-through-march.html

www.dcrainmaker.com/2020/02/oreka-o2-cycling-treadmill-review.html
