Now, the Colorado woman is saying it's great to be home after the grueling journey.

You may remember Thomas because we covered her swim in Lake Champlain in 2017.

Thomas spent 54 hours and 10 minutes in cold water swimming back and forth across the English Channel.

"It was long, it was hard, it was cold but it was great, too," she said. "Thanks for all the support from everybody it's been really incredible."

Teams of fans followed along while she swam by checking her Facebook page.
