Escorted by Suzie Dods and piloted by Tom Linthicum, a pair of friends attempted a widthwise crossing of Lake Tahoe.

In her first marathon swimming attempt, Mina Rhoden from Novato, California completed her Lake Tahoe crossing in 10 hours 55 minutes.

But Kat Filley had to pull out after 2 hours 30 minutes due to extreme vertigo.
