Diana Nyad: Kickass Woman #2

Within seconds of publishing this week’s blog (“In Defense of Walking“), a CNN alert popped up in my email announcing that Diana Nyad had just completed her 100+ mile swim from Cuba in about 53 hours. At 64 years old. No shark cage. Fifth attempt. I don’t think there is any commentary I can add but Wow. Woo-hoo. Way to go. Congratulations Diana Nyad.

Let’s all get out of our metaphorical shark cages and do something great.

Here is Diana’s inspiring 2012 TED talk about why she was compelled to try this swim.
