A few months ago we introduced you to Jessica Kieras, an ultra swimmer and psychologist. If you missed it, it’s worth a read. Jessica shared some great advice for those of us losing motivation with race cancellations and feeling lost during these unprecedented times. Today we get to share her amazing (ok, that's probably an understatement) accomplishment completing a 26 mile swim in 13 hours and 14 minute in Central Oregon’s Lake Billy Chinook.
