Did I mention that Diana turns 63 tomorrow?
You can read about her adventure here.
Here is a news clip about her adventure.
On another note....
I had an awesome weekend in La Crosse Wisconsin. I participated in a 100 mile bike ride as a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). JDRF holds about 5 of these rides a year throughout the United States and this has become the largest. There were a record 425 riders and we were able to raise well over $1 million on this ride alone. It was a great feeling to be able to participate in this event.
My 100 mile ride went fine, we had a great time. But it was nothing compared to what Diana Nyad has accomplished.
