Yup, Diana Nyad is at it again. Not gonna quit. Not gonna take no or "too old" as an answer. 103 miles from Cuba to Florida through shark and jellyfish infested waters. At the age of 63. Swimming. Walk 103 miles would make most people balk. Let alone in an environment that, well frankly, is just not for humans.
Still, this isn't some unplanned or spontaneous stunt. She's practicing, training. Planning. Those jellyfish were a problem for her last time. We're interested to see how she tackles them. We'll be following her training, leading up to her epic swim this summer.
