"There was a lot of stuff glowing at night, probably some jellyfish," he said.
Then the sound of the ocean changed. He could hear waves hitting the shore, and finally he reached land as well.

"Five or six hours in I realized, 'Maybe I can do this,'" he said.
But the ex-Dolphin kept swimming, thinking of his daughters,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, ages 8 and 10.
"I was probably pretty delirious at the time, but I could see the lights getting closer and closer," he said.
They were hard to believe, he and his wife agreed.
"We're not really talking about a swimming story. We're talking about a survival story," Nyad said. "I'm sure his background as an athlete — toughness, having resolve, knowing things are going to be painful — were the saving grace for him."
Paramedics were summoned, and soon he was en route to the hospital. His boat was found near Grand Bahama Island on Deadman's Reef,Cheap Jerseys Outlet, the irony of the name not lost on Konrad. He had gone the other way.
"I shouldn't be here," he said later, his voice cracking.

"It's an incredible story," Nyad said. "Taking his life in his hands and deciding he was going to save himself, I admire him."
"It was a miracle he made it home," Tammy Konrad said.
"A boater's nightmare," he said.
He could also see lights along the coast and pick out landmarks. As he tired, he gained emotional strength.
The U.S. Coast Guard last week provided a brief summary of the events. Konrad, still weak after several days in the hospital for treatment of hypothermia and dehydration, held a news conference to fill in the details.
"The problem was I couldn't walk,Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping. My body was shaking uncontrollably. I crawled up on the beach and warmed myself up enough to be able to walk."
"They had their lights on me and kept going. They didn't see me. That was a difficult time."
"He had two angels on his back," his wife said.
Konrad, who played for the Miami Dolphins from 1999 to 2004, had been around boats since his childhood on Boston's North Shore. So he knew what it meant when he fell off his 31-foot Grady-White while fishing alone nine miles from land.
"I realized I was in some real trouble," he said.
He swam to Palm Beach, covering a distance of 27 miles before ringing the doorbell of an oceanfront home for help at 4:30 a.m. Thursday.
Konrad quickly decided to swim toward shore,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, although he figured the trip would take more than 10 hours, and feared succumbing to hypothermia or cramps after two or three hours. The ocean temperature was in the low 70s — far from frigid, but a lot colder than his body temperature.

PLANTATION, Fla. (AP) — The former NFL fullback entered the room with a wobble in his walk, and needed assistance climbing a podium so he could face a media throng and discuss his death-defying 16-hour swim to shore.
Rob Konrad sipped from a bottle of water, his efforts to rehydrate ongoing four days after the episode. His wife sat at his side rubbing his leg in support, and tears welled in their eyes as he spoke Monday.
Konrad said he got bit "by a whole bunch of stuff." A shark circled before moved along,NFL Jerseys 2018.
Her husband said he was taking his boat for servicing last Wednesday and decided to do a little fishing along the way. He had caught a large fish and was tending to the rod when a large wave hit, flipping Konrad into the ocean.
Twice he was nearly rescued. A recreational fishing boat approached to within 50 yards, but Konrad couldn't flag it down. Then a Coast Guard helicopter searching for him flew overhead.
The 38-year-old Konrad's escape was a testament to willpower and world-class athleticism. The first reports of his adventure last week received worldwide attention.
He said he's not much of a swimmer, but Nyad figures his football experience made a big difference.
His boat was on autopilot and headed east. There were no other boats in sight. Konrad wasn't wearing a life preserver. It was 12:30 p.m.
