Diana is going to try it again!

For those of you who read this blog regularly, you’ll know that I so admire Diana Nyad in her august attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida. She had three bouts of bad luck that caused her to have to abort the swim after 30 hours (and she thought that was a failure????):

1) an asthma attack lasting 11 hours – can you imagine swimming for 11 hours without being able to breathe? (I can’t imagine swimming 11 hours without an asthma attack)

2) sudden onset of pain in one shoulder that she never had before either


3) being besieged by jellyfish

But she didn’t quit working toward her goal!

She’s going to try again tonight – anticipated to be a 60 hour swim – just amazing!

Keep her in your thoughts and prayers please.

Did I mention that she just turned 62?
