KUSA – She did it.
In 67 hours and 16 minutes, Sarah Thomas, from Conifer, finished a 104-mile swim and broke her own record.
Thomas slowly hobbled out of Lake Champlain, which is between New York and Vermont, around 1:30 a.m. local time, and 3:30 a.m. in Denver – about five hours ahead of schedule.
