My encounter with an inspiration and a champion

By Marc Pender

The biggest determination of life longevity is an active lifestyle vs a sedentary one and Diana Nyad is proving that. Diana will be swimming from Cuba to Florida come this June but if you thought that was amazing this is a woman who is over 60 years old. I first met Diana in Sint Maarten where she was training. She had just come off a 15 hour swim and was working out strength training when I met her. She is filled with vitality and inspiration. She hasn’t been swimming for 31 years but last year she completed a 24 hour swim off the coast of Florida which is just a warm up for her lifelong dream of being the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. June will be the month to watch and with the help of CNN we all should be able to see her. Follow along and check out her website.
