Those are the words of Diana Nyack, who today, at the age of 64, became the first person to swim the 110 mile stretch from Cuba to Key West, Florida, without a shark cage.
You have to admire this woman. Swimming that distance, in shark infested waters, along with jelly fish. . . uuggh. . . is not my idea of a fun time or even something I would aspire to. I wouldn't even want to paddle that distance in my kayak or canoe, with a support team! But she made the attempt five times before accomplishing her goal.
God bless her. This is a lesson all of us can learn from, no matter what our age.
