A huge literary event happened today in Orlando: Dara Torres talked about her new book Age is Just a Number.
My husband SwimmerJoe.com swam with Dara at the University of Florida, and so she has long been a household name in our house. We’ve actively followed her five Olympics and have cheered for her many successes. (And had a few laughs as Joe remembers the years spent as her Gator teammate!)
Dara had a great turn out today at the Orlando Public Library where she spoke for nearly 30 minutes, retelling anecdotes from her many years as a swimmer. And at the end, she graciously signed autographs and posed for pictures with the many fans who showed up. She did take a short break to greet Joe with a hug and “What are you doing here?!” reaction…good times!

Thanks, Orlando Public Library, for a great event!
