Diana Nyad–Now There’s a Swift Kick in the Ass

nyad64 years old. Trying for three and a half decades to achieve this freaking goal. Nope, failed. Nope, had to bail out. Nope, missed it…Gonna stop? Not on your life!

She made it. There is no never, only a few not yets…

“When I walk up on that shore in Florida, I want millions of those AARP sisters and brothers to look at me and say, I’m going to write that novel I thought it was too late to do. I’m going to go work in Africa on that farm that those people need help at. I’m going to adopt a child. It’s not too late. I can still live my dreams.”-Diana Nyad

    Yes, that is a pretty remarkable feat. If memory serves, Ms. Nyad was a physical education teacher at one of the colleges I attended. Which means — ta-da — that we swam in the very same pool. I hope I’m that fit when I’m 64!
