    Diana, you are such an inspiration to “senior” women everywhere!! I’m thrilled to learn you are going to give the Cuba-Florida swim another go. From my mouth to God’s ear, this time you WILL succeed. May both your training and the swim itself go just as you’ve planned. Sending positive thoughts to you. xoxo!!

  2. So excited and looking forward to another adventure with you this summer! Wishing you excellent weather to go with your world class spirit, mind and body! Go Diana!

  3. You are freaking me out, woman. You’re doing it again, that’s awesome. And I don’t mean valley-girl “OMG, that’s totally awesome”, I mean I’m totally in awe of you. Thanks for the gift of inspiration that you keep on giving. I won’t forget it as long as I live, and when I turn 60 and beyond, I will think of you wand will be inspired by you still.
