Looking dazed and sunburned, U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad walked on to the Key West shore Monday, becoming the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the help of a shark cage. The most interesting parts of her story are the following...
1. She was 62 yrs old (age is just a number when it comes to living your dreams if you're "living well")
2. She failed 4 times previously but did not give up. The conditions improved to allow her to succeed. (sometimes the "storms of life" cause us to fail but if we don't give up the season will change in our favor)
3. She trained relentlessly in pursuit of her dream/goal and hit the Florida shore exhausted (it take all we got to be successful)
4. She had a dynamic support team who encouraged her and prepared her to make history
