You Are Not Alone Walking From Los Angeles To San Diego

Courtesy of FINIS Duo.

During her long training sessions in preparation for her swim from Cuba to Florida, Diana Nyad frequently listened to audio books on her FINIS Duo product.

While Nyad is better known as a personality on television, on the speaking circuit, and in the water, she is now focused on walking on dryland.

Her latest project with trainer Bonnie Stoll is the EverWalk where they have invited individuals of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to walk with them any distance between 5 km to 233 miles on their inaugural EverWalk from Los Angeles to San Diego in Southern California. Participants can register for the date(s) and distance(s) that suits their lifestyle and schedule - and several other walking opportunities will be organized between now and 2019.

"This EverWalk route from Los Angeles to San Diego will be some inland walking, but the majority of the route will have ocean views and travel through coastal towns. It's going to be beautiful," the EverWalk course is described. "Each day’s full route will be between 17 and 25 miles and will include at least two rest stops and one lunch stop."

Day 1 on October 23rd from Santa Monica to Redondo Beach
Day 2 on October 24th from Redondo Beach to Long Beach
Day 3 on October 25th from Long Beach to Costa Mesa
Day 4 on October 26th from Costa Mesa to Laguna Beach
Day 5 on October 27th from Laguna Beach to San Clemente
Day 6 on October 28th from Oceanside to Del Mar
Day 7 on October 29th from La Jolla to Point Loma/San Diego

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
