Time to be Fearless…or insane

If you’re bored today, check out Diana Nyad‘s progress as she attempts the 103-mile swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage (they have a kind of electrical shark-guarding field that surrounds her during the swim, but apparently it doesn’t work for certain types of shark, so she also has a team of “shark divers” to distract any sharks that go after her. Uhh…) She jumped in at 7:45pm ET yesterday, the swim is expected to take about 60 hours. She’s 61.
Track her progress on the swim here.
Update: She didn’t make it. After 29 hours she voluntarily quit, and exited the water vomiting (uhh…good call on calling it quits). Props to her for going for it.
