    Two miles off Key West, Diana Nyad continued her quest to become the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.

    Like so many others, I, too, was blown away by Diana Nyad’s oceanic feat in swimming from Cuba to Florida. I couldn’t have been more in awe.

    Then I looked again at her name: Diana, goddess of the moon, with its sway over the tides; Nyad, water nymph.

    This was indeed a swim of mythical proportion.
