Escape from Alcatraz

Recently, Newsletter Editor and Long Distance maven June Hussey escaped from Alcatraz! She made a break for San Francisco with a few hundred of her fellow inmates just over a week ago. Everybody lived to swim another day and no charges were filed by the authorities, the punishing swim in the bay was a self-imposed sentence ;-)

BTW, she swam the 1.2 miles without a wetsuit! If any of you have ever been to the Bay Area, you know how cold the water is. On that particular day, the water was 60 degrees F, which is significantly colder than a normal pool (78-80 degrees F).

June is a brave soul indeed. If you want more information on this event, click here.
