WATCH: Woman Puts My Labor Day Weekend to Shame

Damn! Way to make me feel like I was one lazy bum this Labor Day weekend, Diana Nyad! ;)

On Monday, she became the first person ever to swim all the way from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.  The distance from Havana to Key West is roughly 110 miles--she swam for FIFTY THREE hours straight!  She is also 64 years old.  Incredible!

After her swim, Diana had this to say:

"I have three messages. One is, we should never, ever give up. Two is, you're never too old to chase your dream. Three is, it looks like a solitary sport, but it is a team."

Nyad is an author, reporter, and motivational speaker--seems fitting! ;)
