I know I'm a little late with this, but did you guys see this?!?! Nik Wallenda walked across Niagara Falls on a tightrope!!! (last Friday I think)
I can't even walk in a straight line on a 2ft. wide line flat on the ground while sober. Let alone on a 2in. wide wire across enormously loud raging waters, through gusting winds and mist for 1/3 of a mile 200 feet in the air.
Have you ever been to Niagara Falls?! Holy cow!
I think what amazed me even more was that they interviewed him while he was walking across and he just carried on a conversation as if he was on a leisurely stroll through the park. I think if that was me (HAHAHAHA) I'd be all like STFU!
And then I even joked right near the end, "Why isn't he sprinting to the finish?!" because that's what Josh always tells me to do at the end of races... and then HE DID! He literally ran on a freakin' tight rope. Ridiculous and amazing all at once!
Oh, and the fact that his wife and kids were waiting on the other side???
I'm just saying, if Josh ever had the brilliant idea to walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope (especially if we had kids!) I'd kill him!!! Although, I guess that'd be counter-productive?
Anyway, Thank GOD he made it! I was so nervous!
