My new hero is...Dara Torres!
She's 21 days older than me, and just look at her! (Oops, did I just give away my age?) I can't wait to see how well she performs at the Olympics. She's already got one medal (this time -- she's got tons of others from her previous four times!)
In case you're living under a rock, and don't know who she is, google her or check out her wikipedia page.
I just thought I'd provide a little inspiration here!
