If you are living under a rock and haven’t already heard, Diana Nyad finally reached her amazing goal! She completed a 53 hour swim from Cuba to Key west. Yup that’s right: 53 hours!!! Don’t worry, our jaws dropped too. Diana Nyad is the prime example of determination and courage. After 5 years of attempting, she became the first woman to swim straight from Cuba to Key West; that’s 110 miles of open ocean! Now, we just want to clarify that this amazing 64 year-old women has years of training. She is a professional athlete and is properly educated in emergency procedure.
All in all, this is an inspiring story. No dream is too big and apparently no swim is too long!
