I am going to stalk Dara Torres

But not in that creepy stalker way that gets you arrested.

No, I am just going to find out if it's possible for a humble mom blogger to get an interview with this amazing repeat Olympic medal winner who happens to train in a pool that's a 10-minute drive from my home.

See, that will be my angle, if I happen to get ahold of her manager: Wouldn't Dara Torres love to talk to a hometown girl like herself? She's a mom, I'm a mom. She's from here, I'm from here. She trains at the aquatic complex, I've been there. (I signed up my kid for swimming lessons there!) She's been to the Olympics, I've watched them on TV. She dared to dream of winning a swimming medal in her 40s, and I am daring to dream of winning an interview. We're practically twins.



How could she turn down an opportunity like this?

We'll see what happens.... What would you love to ask Dara?

What a fabulous idea! I can not wait to hear how this progresses. I certainly wish you the best of luck getting a hold of her manager to set something up.

I'd like to ask her if she wants to have her way with me?

That is great! She's pretty amazing. I can't imagine the dedication to begin Olympic training so soon after having a baby.

Just so you know -- I'm fine. Just fine. I'll be around for for Dara to molest for some time to come. Provided, of course, I don't step out the door and get creamed by a bus.
