Diana Nyad’s unbelievable, arduous, and triumphant 110-mile swim from Cuba to Florida at the age of 65 totally floored me. As a swimmer and triathlete, I know enough to be able to imagine the ordeal she went through to reach her goal of a lifetime— But, after four previous failed attempts, she now stands as a heroic example for each of us to “find a way, “ the mantra she says carried her through to the end. It may be a stretch, but since endurance sports, stories of triumph and software are three of my favorite subjects, I couldn’t help but draw a correlation between Nyad’s epic swim and the perseverance needed to succeed in choppy waters of software development.
