Clap your fins if this surprises you.
Diana Nyad, the woman who was attempting to become the first person to ever swim from Cuba to Florida without the safety of a shark cage, was forced to quit yesterday after battling unfavorable water conditions and exhaustion.
The 61-year-old woman who suffers from asthma had been suffering from shoulder pain a little more than a day into her journey, taking aspirin in an attempt to quell the pain. However, it appeared as if Nyad may have been suffering from physical exhaustion as well, vomiting once she quit her swim.
This was a singularly bad idea from the outset, and further evidence that too many baby boomers refuse to grow up gracefully rather than indulge themselves.
Hope her vomit fed some fish, anyway.
