I’m traveling today, so while I’m gone, here are some links to peruse:

This awesome graphic of Olympic athletes compared to other animals (it blows my mind that a sailfish can swim 68 mph…I swim…about 1.8 mph (for long distances (don’t judge me))) (also, I passed a butterfly on a run the other day, which I’m actually pretty proud of now) (although, now that I think of it, it’s kinda unfair to compare the butterfly and the falcon to ground runners; ditto for free divers compared to the beaked whale): http://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/a-graphic-comparision-of-how-the-worlds-greatest-human-athletes-fare-against-average-animals
