Diana Nyad

Monday, September 02, 2013

just have to say Diana Nyad rocks! 64 years old and she just swam, what, 53 hours to get to Fla. from Cuba. 5th try brought success. I keep a quote on my bulletin board:"enthusiasm holds onto our dreams. persistence makes the most of them." congrats to her and her team!

    They interviewed her on the Today show this morning. She said her biggest obstacle was the face mask she wore to protect her from jellyfish sting bites. She kept taking in salt water and could not keep food down. She kept throwing up all during that swim. What a remarkable woman. Don't ever give up was her message. I don't want to give up on losing weight, so I will keep on Sparking.
