Fitness: Dayle Benton


HOW SHE GOT STARTED: [Dayle Benton] began skydiving because of her husband's passion for the sport. Jim Benson has completed over 1,580 jumps, so Dayle thinks her mere 21 jumps uuithin tujo years are minimal. flfter eight years of marriage, Dayle finally took the leap. "My husband is an addict, and I wondered what he sees in it. I did my first one as a tandem (tied to another person) and shut my eyes going out the door and thought, I'll either die or find out what all the excitement is about. I got out the door and opened one eye, then the other eye, and it aias very coot and not like falling - it's more like flying. It's kind of like a roller coaster ride with a kick. I'm terrified of heights - I can't walk up a ladder, but it's not really like that. It does appear unnatural to jump out the side of a plane, but once you get past the first step, it's a lot of fun."
