The jellyfish may be out to get her, but Diana Nyad isn't giving up. The long-distance swimmer is now on day two of her quest to swim from Cuba to Florida. Yes, she's doing it in shark-infested waters without a protective cage. As Nyad said this morning, and was posted on her Twitter feed: “Today is more like swimming. I don’t know what you would call last night…probably surviving.” Follow her progress on her website and on Twitter. Read the full story here.
