For Chesapeake Bay Swim winner Debbie Dawson, age is just a number http://www.kansascity.com/sports/outdoors/article85455867.html#storylink=rss Debbie Dawson has swum with dolphins and in the dark and in water so cold that her body once went numb for the last half-mile of a race. In one open-water race, she encountered a marlin she thought was a shark. Sometimes her blood rushes to her core to the point in which she can't breathe. Or she'll reach her arm into the water and come up with her hand covered in seaweed.

Dome tent easy to carry without sacrificing size http://www.kansascity.com/sports/outdoors/article84093107.html#storylink=rss Everyone knows that the ratings of tents are optimistic, right? That is, a two-person tent can obviously fit two people, but they better not be too big, and they'd better like each other. Of course, that's the tradeoff: Everyone wants a lightweight tent that's easy to carry, but that comes at the expense of size. The REI Half Dome 2 Plus tent gives you just a little bit more room than the traditional two-person tent - it's 10 inches longer and 4 inches wider than the standard Half Dome. That may not sound like a lot of space, but the few extra inches give it a roomier feel.
