I am astonished but the story of swimming the as Straits of Florida is rated a top story on the BBC News page. I had no idea it was such a big deal. I was going to take a lunch break to watch Diana Nyad land but it is a zoo and I am not interested in spending my precious minutes outside the office being squished in a crowd on Smathers Beach.
Well now, the fifth time is the charm and all our lives are made better by this unbearable feat of swimming 103 miles all in one go. By a 64 year old woman no less. May her biceps never grow less.
