My Turn on DWTS
It may have been short-lived, but my experience on DWTS was intense. Every single person I come across, friends and strangers alike, start with their own assumption: "It must have been SO MUCH FUN!!" Actually, fun is not the word for my particular adventure. It was intense.

DWTS: Ego Bruised But Not Broken
The first week Fox Trot for @HenryByalikov and me was filled with pride. I may not bring the stuff of Olympic ice dancers but we worked our butts off and I was thrilled to pull off a proper Fox Trot, something entirely alien to me just one week prior.

St Jude Children's Research Hospital, an American National Treasure
I spoke to the general population of employees there just a few days ago and went for a tour of the facility. I was in tears a number of times, with inspiration, not sadness.

The Oprah Experience
Of all the more superficial moments of recognition I have humbly received since that Labor Day walk up onto the sands of Key West five weeks ago, two stand out glaringly.
One is an invitation to the White House to meet President Obama. The other is an invitation to sit down and be interviewed by Oprah Winfrey.

Or, frankly, is the order of those two honors the other way around?

Independent Observer Report: Roger McVeigh
During all my shifts and time aboard Voyager (approximately 31.5 hours of her 53 hours of swim time), I never saw Diana receive any assistance in floating or in propelling forward, never used any snorkel or fins, she never left the water (always swimming forward or treading water), and she never hung on or touched any boat or kayak or person (with the exception of doctors taking her pulse and handlers/Dr. Angel applying sting stopper and lubricant to relieve chafing)

Independent Observer Report: Janet Hinkle
We asked two non-Xtreme Dream Team members to serve as Independent Observers on the crossing. Janet Hinkle and Roger McVeigh, both mature, responsible citizens of Key West, took very seriously their commitment to observe and record virtually every minute of the Swim, with 100% accuracy and objectivity.

A Movie about Diana's Journey and Struggle
The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil's Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler's documentary brings Diana Nyad's extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

A health update, and here's a summary of links you posted to the blog in the comments - most of these were posted more than once, and we apologize for being unable to approve most of the comments with links in them until today - our only moderation staff were on a boat with a satellite net connection that failed right at the end of the swim. Thank you all for helping out.
