Swimming with the Sharks at Age 61

Today’s Washington Post has an inspirational article about 61-year-old swimming legend Diana Nyad, who plans to attempt a 103-mile, shark-infested swim from Cuba to Key West sometime this summer.  Nyad’s goal is to finish a job she started 32  years ago, when she was the greatest endurance swimmer in the world.   This is a story about an amazing athlete, not a business owner, but it conveys themes that relate to late-blooming entrepreneurship.   The full article can be found here.
