Ryan Lochte and Diana Nyad

October 9th, 2013

"Nyad Swim For Relief" Fundraiser Benefits AmeriCaresRyan Lochte told me that Diana Nyad had given him “new appreciation for swimmming and water.” Don’t get me wrong, he loves swimming, but just the thought of what she has done opened his mind to another realm. He met her today at the lap pool in front of Macy’s where Duracell is having her swim for 48 hours and they are raising money for Sandy victims. I was also invited to swim with her tonight. But I’m not sure I’m going to go. You have to stay with her, can’t go ahead, and apparently better to fall behind. Joe Monganiello (True Blood) went this morning. He’s in a play in Connecticut, “so he could.” And his heart also goes out to Sandy victims, but he didn’t get in the pool like Ryan. Both great guys. And loads of swimmers from all over are coming to swim with Diana–all night. 48 hours in a pool. That blows everyone’s minds. Nice two lane lap pool.
