Find A Way by Diana Nyad
Coming this spring is my new dramatic book review, Find a Way by Diana Nyad, the inspiring true story of perseverance, resilience, and living out your dreamsno matter your age.  It's the perfect book to get you in the mood for the summer Olympics.  Your new mantra will, indeed, be "FIND A WAY."

In 2013, at the age of sixty-four, Diana Nyad swam 111 miles from Cuba to Florida, in an epic feat of both endurance and human will, in fifty-three hours.  Millions cheered her on as she was the first to make this historic crossing without the aid of a shark cage.  In getting ready for such a swim, Diana faced grueling physical preparation, including regular 12 hour swims, as well as four crushing failures before she achieved this thirty-five year goal that had eluded her during her peak champion swimming days.  Her mantra--find a way--offers hope and inspiration to everyone: incredible things are possible at any age.

On a personal note, this book has had a tremendous impact on me.  I've read a lot of inspirational literature, but for some reason Diana Nyad's story of overcoming obstacles and her incredible swim across the ocean from Cuba to Florida (the swimmer's equivalent of Mount Everest) at the age of 64 turned something in me "on," and I feel ready to, well, FIND A WAY.  I hope you will too.
