We learned two fascinating facts about Lewis:

1. He literally raises his body temperature with his mind. This shows our incredible, but perhaps untapped, ability to achieve our personal goals.
2. His support crew is relatively far away from him during his cold water swims. This shows incredible confidence in his ability to survive where few others can.
