Fun bit about Emily:

She swam in the Mediterranean Sea under a full moon in France, even though she's terrified of open water! She also competed in a triathlon, coming in 4th place out of 100. She said she would have gotten 3rd, but she ran off course and nobody could tell her to turn around because her music was too loud. She was trying to drown out the fact that she was willingly doing competitive cardio!
