Right we've always said ryan lock is like floating gronk right. He's like swimming nodding so good. Their best friends spread makes sense. Like if grant could swim he would be ryan locked the nf ryan like you could catch passes. You would be like right. So good like lindsey if you were to do one of those souls switching movies okay and those two guys switched sold night on with no no one would be like if we switch soul if lackey jumped into gronk spotty and gronk jump deadlocked so locked just injured himself. I mean he tried to make it back for the olympics. I don't know if you saw that. But he tried and he just barely missed showing you how difficult it is to make an olympic team for any ethic. Okay does he now. No thirty seven. Great question. Thirty seven years old and he is recovering due to an apparent accident. An inflatable waterslide. Is that the most laki thing ever liked to me. they're better bit vodka. Going down that water slide. But he's gonna try and drink the vodka as he's sliding down but that is just he posted on instagram. Like you just life by the way just kyla read. I thought it'd be read but just say just say lindsay that you had an accident an undisclosed. We can call it a soft tissue accident in my right. that's true. Is anyone asking all of the follow up questions posed. They're being coy about it. That's so lucky It's like gronk tripping over a karaoke machine and landing on along with his shirt on one hundred percent like what so you so his life wrote i. She really posted a photo of him. Giving a thumbs up on a hostile. He's mike utley. Jesus christ in the hot and the thumbs up is what guys give when. They're carried off on a stretcher so we know they're not paralyzed thumbs up like locked. Don't give the thumbs up because you had an inflatable water slides. She wrote o- going into though. I wanna to know more about the. You can't just say you had an accident on an inflatable water. Sled and not be very specific about what that she's roll off the top. Don't race down and inflatable kids waterslide. Folks so all she wrote don't race done it so clearly. He was trying to some kids like again. He didn't make the olympics. He's got to get that racing out of his system. He probably was driving along and saw some like waterslide and was like. I gotta get in this right now. You kids are toast. And then he heard surgery was a success also. Wrote surgery surgery okay. Was he racing on his feet like could have been run down a waterslide. Understand how you could just pick up too much. Maybe he doesn't know how waterslide works. God blessed. I mean his wife crazy. We'll all right so let's move on so we were talking about You know the contracts in the nfl. And i think you know. The nba contracts are insane. I don't know if you've been following going on with the lakers and whatnot but dennis schreuder. Dennis schroder was offered like an eighty. Two million dollar eighty. Four million dollar contract to resign with the lakers. Now they sign russell westbrook. So no one's gonna pass no one's gonna pass anymore and to you might not get your reps. But he was like no. I can hold out. And he held out any held out and he wound up signing a six and five point nine million minimum contract with the celtics that may be a better landing place for him but he left seventy nine million dollars on the table. Practically that is a huge with ever proportion than his wife wrote. I'm so proud of my husband. And he made the decision to stay true to himself and to fight for his calls and his vision. spin like. That's when you need your spouse part of me that's like damn i love. How much is wife his fricking corner right now. Like it's writer died nine million dollars. Who needs that yeah. Let's be honest criticism. That's your money to girl. i mean. Come on bullets be honest k. Five million dollars also doesn't suck no like in the grand scheme of the world. Five million dollars is enough five million dollars if you play it right and you invest it right and you live wisely you can live comfortably and do cool shit. If there's one thing we know about most athletes is that they live. Wi- moneywise well. Here's my question then. Does he have the potential because not a big nba person anymore. So when you a say that name. And i've never heard it before and then be were throwing around that kind of money. That that that's the nba right in a nutshell third. But then but does he have the potential to go earn a bigger contract. It actually plays or is this may be a smart long-term investment strategy that there will be more money on the back end or is this like to literally cut and dry. You're gonna you're gonna make eighty two. I think he has the potential time explosive guard. He's got good size like a great sixth man. If you were to say like okay. Our starting point guard is down. We wanna give us bring intruder. And he's like an energy guy. Till i come in. And how he's kinda like in the english premier league soccer the guy you bring in the sixtieth minute. Who's great but you're not starting you bring him in at that point because you're like he's the energy guy off the bench to kinda get things going. I think he can keep working in the nba. And get like you could make me make another five million dollar contract but you will not see eighty two million dollars ever again and you could act to back them up. God bless her..

"Sports. Talk Show Sports. byline, USA. Here's Ron Bar. Diana Naiad has joined us here on Sports Byline USA, and we're talking about her book called find away the inspiring story of one woman's pursuit of a lifelong dream, and I was interested in a quote. You on, said that while you swim, you remember Stephen. Hawking's books sings and counts numbers, and also has vivid hallucinations of the wizard of Oz and the yellow brick road. Explain more of that to me. You know you know we were talking a minute ago without Great Oltra. Athletes so I'm very drawn to the stories of the big alpine climbers, but I also you know the endurance runners, marathoners, ultramarathons, ours and the tour. De France cyclists I got to cover the tour defense number of times I'm fascinated by all these people who are willing to go hard. Go long and never give up, but he suffered different things so I don't know what extreme altitude sickness is I haven't been at the top of the world i. don't know what. What it's like to run across the Kalahari desert, but the thing that's unique to me and there are only three of us in the world who do these long long epics swings in the ocean is a something called sensory deprivation, and if you want if you cycle if you hike if you ski if you Korean, you still have your is in years. You have some sensory input when you're out. There imagine you're swimming for fifty three hours with a tight cap. Cap Over your ears because you're trying to keep the heat in your head, you're immersed in liquid colder than your body temperature. Your you've got all over goggles over your eyes, and you're turning your head once a second sixty times a minute, so you don't see anything you don't hear anything Romney? Has He use a loud police? Whistle to get my attention you, God forbid. There's thrashing of a shark next to me. Something dangerous like that, so you are very quickly. Quickly not just over the fifty three hours, but in in three four five hours of between these swim. You're in your own little world. You are with your own thoughts, and that's all you got you don't see the dolphins swimming by you. Don't see the French sailboat that circling around you. You are just getting your head and very quickly. You're not with concrete box anymore. Oh Yeah I'M GONNA make it to this hour and I'm GonNa eat this next and. Think about now. Your mind just goes off on its own. I'm very attracted to lay astrophysics. I've been reading from call sekine when I was a kid up to Stephen Hawking these days I'm fascinated by the cosmos, and what better place to trip out on four billion stars above you when you're swimming out fifty sixty miles offshore in the Gulf steam, then during one of these long twins, where your brain is just wafting through moments of your childhood, and you're seeing the Taj Mahal, smoothing out on the ocean over here on the right, and you know I I was. was I was attracted to thinking about the laws of gravity in the laws of the universe, and how this whole big bang started where we are today and I started singing songs I. Don't listen to headphones. I'm just singing my own my own little routine of my era. You know I'm not a baby boomer, so I'm thinking of be those Neil Young Janice Joplin all that stuff and that those saw were meant to keep me in the moment. Keeping Focus, I'M GONNA sing. Neil Young. The damage done a thousand times exactly the way near recording that settled. Knocking myself do and it's captivating and when I get to a thousand Neil young damage done. A Levin hours and five minutes, but I been there I didn't like I know who I. Am I know what I'm doing. I know why I'm doing instead of off with the Taj Mahal whole. Weirdo world so the mind is going through a lot, and it takes a lot of focus and discipline to keep yourself on track. Your first attempt to course was back in nineteen, seventy eight. That was the second attempt. I should say nineteen seventy. You're only twenty eight years old, but let's fast forward to that fifth attempt where you were successful. What was the difference in that effort? The fifth attempt than what the first four were like. On the one hand I don't care who you talk to. If you talked to someone who's been out on a big mother-in-law expedition, they learn whether they made it or not. They come back with new science new technology, a new way to tap the inner spirit You know something new about the animal kingdom that they're trying to go through and it on all four expeditions were intelligent. We would come back jellyfish experts. The Shark experts the navigational team medical team. My personal handlers nutrition. We would talk about what can we do better? How can we get through those deadly box, jellyfish and the fifth time I during a? Mask he wasn't easy to swipe perspective who helps people. Dole. The having been couldn't needed in the face and they've got you know. Get a get a kind of a silicone covering before they get their skin graft surgery, he step on Canal Susan Newman worked with me for nine months prototype at the prototype, and finally on the fifth attempt I have a security that can make it through the long nights, and not be stung by the jellyfish across cost the mouth where we were having trouble projecting me I need to breathe. How can you cover them out and still be so Stefan? This masks for me? It didn't work prototype the type after prototype, but finally did, but it was tough to. It's not easy as having your retain bear face. Please can manipulate the mouth and Bonaly -able. I was struck with waves of salt water I was vomiting into the mass. You know I just couldn't wait to take that mask off at sunrise, but I wouldn't have gone back a fifth time. If I hadn't had that, ask. was there a particular time when you knew you were going to be successful in this fifth try? The night on the second night I think we have out were about thirty eight hours than Barney. Who Never tells me? Nobody ever tells me where we are. You don't know what's going to happen. You don't know what wind and current and shark and New Orleans is. Going to happen, but you don't start celebrating until be safe as bill you see the whites of the eyes of the people on shore now that's when you know you're gonNA. Make you money felt. I needed it hanging on by a thread. I was cold shivering. Stopping too often, which means you're getting dragged east by the Gulf Gulfstream when you're trying to swim north. Georgia Florida and she said the mean. There's something to see what I gathered up a little bit and I said. There was A. Thin, golden white right in the middle horizontal across these black and I said that coming up oh. My God I can take all the jellyfish stuff off I'm GONNA be. The ways are going to warm my body and she said. It's better than the sun. There isn't the light to key west now. We have a long way to go she. told me that, but I wouldn't trouble and still had two hours to swim after that, but to jolt that that gave me Rom that Vicent. Thirty five years and was finally there. That got me through. Really have a couple of minutes left Diana, but when you did finally get through, and you had a chance to compose yourself and get your emotions and feelings under control and reflect back on it. What did it all mean to you? You know I. Think Honestly the first words I spoke on the beach. Never ever give up. That's what it meant to me and.

"A low. Hello, hello. This is Adrian Bergen. This is generation bold the fountain of truth, and there's a lot of truth that come out during our show. But today part of that truth is that we can be inspired by others. And if we talk about a walking inspiration machine, we're gonna be talking about Diana naiad that she's one of those folks who I think actually needs no introduction because for many many decades, actually you've been hearing about her in the news. You know, that she is a legendary stripper, you know, that she has a wonderful book out a find away. And we'll talk about why she named the book quite that. But from the Wall Street Journal to the Houston times, they call it a gripping thriller. Why? Well, of course, as a legendary swimmer you may have remembered that she's been in the news since nineteen seventy. Five when she swam around then Hatton, much, more recently a hundred and ten point eight six miles around Cuba to Florida and much more. But she also has a mission, and that mission is something that she, and I share we've talked about it many times and then get up and move. And so we'll also talk about a wonderful mission. She has that she's promoting called ever walk. We'll find out exactly what that's about. So our quest to successful aging. Was speaking today with Diana diet? So thank you so much for being on the show today. It's entirely my pleasure. And I must say no we're going to get into walking that a couple of weeks ago when you and I and a couple hundred other people walked the beautiful city of Philadelphia all day long. I know I was out there for ten hours. I love spending time with you. You're such a forceful, energetic personality. So I'm so glad we're in this world of walking together. Adrian where we are. And you can see some videos of that on ever walking on free workers. But what I will tell you. If you were there. You would have just been thrilled, Diana, not only let us, but she bugles us. So tell us a little bit about that. And let us know about ever walk. You know, clearly, I'm not a professional horn player. There's a there's a a little bit of comic relief to my bugle playing. But. You know, every time and it was five times. I tried to make it across that epic ocean. They call it the Mount Everest of the earth oceans that straight between Havana, Cuba and Key West Florida. The great swimmers of the world had tried since nineteen fifty including me as you mentioned way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight is kind of the holy grail. All the obstacles, you could name the mighty Gulfstream the particular sharks the deadly box jellyfish. I could make you a long list add tried to make it across. And every time I stood on that Havana shore, my teammates out in the boat. Bonnie my head handler and best friend next to me on the shore. I blew Reveille. I thought. And that means we all know what it means all the world around. It means it to the military. But it means it to us civilians to get up get up at dawn. Don't miss this day, go after whatever you're going after you might not get there. You might not get there today, but you are not gonna sleep your life away. So that's that's kind of my song and now with ever walk which is initiative Bonnie, and I started three and a half years ago to get as you said just people up enjoying the beautiful outdoors of the United States of America forgetting about politics for just a least a few minutes of our day. We're looking up at the gorgeous trees last that Philadelphia city is I candy, you know, from the beautiful little cobblestone alley ways to the river with those both houses lined up majestically. It was just it was just I was in a state of sheer delight all day and all of us. You're on a high. You're doing something a little bit difficult that day we walk twenty six point two miles more than a lot of people would care to walk, and you don't need to walk that far. But you could go out and walk down to the corner to get your newspaper and back and feel the earth under your feet feel the power of your stride. You know, didn't start looking at the horizon and the beautiful clouds and think who you wanna be what you wanna do with the rest of your life. So I'm I'm finding walking to be a kind of enlightenment and empowerment kind of thing in my life. And now Bonnie and Tony to bring frankly, we're trying to bring a million people into our movement, and that's a that's a tall order. But we think big and we're thinking big on this one too. Yeah. And I think if anybody can do it it will be you. And certainly Bonnie, and and although you say, we don't talk politics. I have to tell everybody that one of the people who's been actually inspired by Diana is Hillary Clinton, you'll see her endure. Using your book. And I and and it's just so many people have said, this is thrilling to them. They really couldn't understand how you could make this trip this journey by water with the sharks there. They mentioned that you were not in any kind of shark cage. You're very very brave, and so I'm gonna ask you this question. Maybe a little different question. You've had your extremely brave person. And yet when you wanted to engage the world in physical activity you picked walking now, frankly, it's lovely. But there's no break for you. It involved here. Why did you do that? Why of all the sports including your own? Did you concentrate on walking? Well, you know, we're talking about the masses when I just mentioned that our goal is to get a million people in this country. And I'm talking to Sanjay Gupta. Dr Sanjay Gupta from CNN. Now who covered the Cuba swim for several years to you know, he's known as America's doctor about helping us in twenty twenty go to fifty cities in fifty weeks. Every Saturday Bonnie, and I are going to do ten mile walk in fifty capitals of fifty states. And you know, how would we get a million people out in the ocean swimming? Yes, I'm in love with the ocean. I wish I could give that experience to a million people not to mention five or ten, but who else is gonna swim. Let's say from Cuba to Florida. I guarantee you I'm gonna go to my grave, or my, you know, cremation moment, and nobody else. Will have done that swim. That's how difficult it is to do. So am I here to just inspire one person twenty five million people were following Cuba's went by the end? And you know, what they didn't care about swimming. They didn't care about sports. Then they care if I was setting some new all the favor record. They cared about the message. They saw someone who you to give up and a team without getting paid a sense who went for years not getting paid and and and giving their lives away from their families away from their jobs because they were chasing history. We were chasing a grand adventure that had never been done before. And all of the science, and the technology, and the tapping of the human spirit that comes with that swim wasn't just for me. And that's when wasn't just for slimmers. Well, just walking it's not about how hard can you heard? Can you want across the Kalahari desert in one hundred twenty degree heat? I doubt down with high regard for the peop-. Who do run across the collar, Harry desert? I want a million people out doing what you and I did in Philadelphia. The other day feeling the power of moving and.

"Oh, my. Hello. Hello. Hello. This is Adrian Burg, and this is generation bowl the fountain of truth, and I wanna talk to you for a few minutes. This is our last segment of the show this week before thanksgiving, I have a four things have come up in my personal life. But it was generated by things that are happening in the world. And I wanted to discuss it with you. I wanted to be food for thought. This holiday season. What as I mentioned during a little toss was speaking with Diana naiad is a loss of this lawsuit is actually taking place at home is not US lawsuit. And I think it's funny one to get some, publicity, but I really was listening and following very closely. You may not know please do not hold this against me. But I am a lawyer so lawsuits interests me, and at least I wasn't my past life that was thirty five years. So it was quite a while. This is a gentleman who is actually brought a lawsuit to have his birth certificate changed tweet younger person. He's sixty nine years old. And he wants it to be changed to forty five year old. And he says, look, I look good. I feel good. I've been on these self actualization questionnaires online that'll tell you. How old you are, mentally and physically dot chronologically by Midland? Physical health is much better than my. Chronological number at people who think of me as sixty nine might be discriminating against me. They don't know that I can do what a man of forty five can do particularly in the workplace. So if somebody can I self identify as a different gender than which they were born why can't I self identify as a different age that is something funny about it. There's something contemporary and trendy and buzzword e about it. But think about it for a minute. Code. We ad-hoc simply say, we're a different age. Now, if you actually did that armored Saint employment record that's not right, and it's actual fraud. If you did on an insurance policy internally insurance companies might have a different standard for you. If your health record shows better than somebody else if your age, but they still have you at a certain age you to cost you more money. So, you know, if you think about it seriously, if you take this lawsuit seriously instead of as a joke, you could see some points here. What about dating if you saw the same exact person in the same exact clothing with the same exact level of wealth and education? And you knew one person was forty five years old. And you know, the other was sixty five years old. Would you think differently about them? I certainly bet you would even if everything else was the same except their age. So what do you think of that? Now, I thought about that for myself. Particularly this year because I've turned seventy would I want other people to think of me, it's younger. By case, the interest now, honestly, all of my life. I've made myself a little bit older. Why? Because I like the idea of showing off how I am at a certain age. I liked blowing people's minds today. I had a business meeting, and I said to the person, and this is the second thing I wanted to talk to you about that. You know now that I'm seventy I casually said, and he said what? That was the reaction. I was looking for what you couldn't possibly be seventy. Now, I was a little disappointed because he thought I was in my early sixties. Sixty three I was going for like fifty five. But okay, I'll take the point is that. Although I do feel quite a bit younger and very superstitious. You know that? So I hope that doesn't change. I wonder how I feel about working longer. And I challenge you to think about this. We are all working longer because we can't it's simply the case. There are people who were seventy years old that was considered to be a much much older adult today. Seventy is not so old and people are still in the workforce. If you are are you thinking of slowing down. Now, I have done that personally in many ways after a lot of consideration. Because I love the idea of worldwide travel. I love the idea of having time because I've recently become a grandmother because like his live across country. I wanna have the opportunity to go see them for thanksgiving. At for Christmas and to get New Year's January, and you just cannot do that at one hundred percent pace. If you've got a boss or a business that you must carry on. So how are you feeling about it? Do you think that a time comes in life when you really want to slow down, even if you don't have to slow down? That's a good question to ask. You her Diana naiad say when I asked her whether there should be a senior Olympics. And so she said, yes. Things get different as you get older that doesn't mean that you're lesser it just makes your different. So think about that for a moment. And the third thing that happened was I saw show so a show called inner voices. And in that show was a little boy he was eight years old. And he's saying the entire forty five minute show about a little boy who had lost his father in the war. And his mother got depressed. Hardly had any parents helping him in life, and what it meant to him to be able to have people in in school. That bully him and they were bullying. This is true. In my experience because I'm a grief facilitator for children have lost a parent is their life very early as I did. So this show in a voices, this particular show called the custom was extremely important to me. And I realized that the mission the time I give for this particular that profit organization called good grief, some of the most important moments of my life. So right now, it's going to be thanksgiving is be hearing the show just a little bit before thanksgiving..

So I'm so glad we're in this world of walking together Adrian, well, we are and you can see some videos of that on every walk walking on free workers. But what I will tell you. If you were there. You would have just been thrilled, Diana, not only let us, but she bugles us. So tell us a little bit about that. And let us know about ever walk. You know, clearly, I'm not a professional horn player. There's a there's a little bit of comic relief to my do go playing. But. Every time and it was five times. I tried to make it across that epic ocean. They call it the Mount Everest of the earth's oceans that straight between Havana, Cuba and Key West Florida. The great swimmers of the world had tried since nineteen fifty including me as you mentioned way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight it's kind of the holy grail. All the obstacles, you could name the mighty Gulfstream the particular sharks the deadly box jellyfish. I could make you a long long. Tried to make it across. And every time I stood on that Havana shore, my teammates out in the boats. Bonnie my head handler and best friend next to me on the shore. I blew Reveille pop thought. Oh. Up. And that means we all know what it means all the world around. It means it to the military. But it means it to us civilians to get up get up at dawn. Don't miss this day, go after whatever you're going after you might not get there. You might not get there today, but you are not gonna sleep your life away. So that's that's kind of my song and now with ever walk which is initiative Bonnie, and I started three and a half years ago to get as you said just people up enjoying the beautiful outdoors of the United States of America forgetting about politics for just a few minutes of our day. We're looking up at the gorgeous trees last that philidelphia's city is eye candy, you know, from the beautiful little cobblestone alleyways to the river with those both houses lined up majestically. It was just it was just I was in a state of sheer delight all day and all of us. You're on a high. You're doing something a little bit difficult that day we walk twenty six point two miles more than a lot of people would care to walk, and you don't need to walk that far. But you could go out and walk down to the corner to get your newspaper and back and feel the earth under your feet feel the power of your stride start looking up at the horizon and the beautiful clouds and think who you wanna be what you wanna do with the rest of your life. So I'm I'm finding walking to be a kind of enlightenment and empowerment kind of thing in my life. And now Bonnie, and I are trying to bring frankly, we're trying to bring a million people into our movement, and that's a that's a tall order. But we think big and we're thinking big on this one too. Yeah. And I think if anybody can do it it will be you. And certainly Bonnie, and and although you say, we don't talk politics. I have to tell everybody that one of the people who's been actually inspired by Diana is Hillary Clinton, you'll see her endorsing your book. And I and and it's just so many people have said, this is thrilling to them. They really couldn't understand how you could make this trip this journey by water with the sharks there. They mentioned that you were not in any kind of shark cage. You're very very brave, and so I'm going to ask you this question. Maybe a little different question. You've had your extremely brave person. And yet when you wanted to engage the world in physical activity you picked walking now, frankly, it's lovely cut. There's no break for you. It involved here. Why did you do that? Why of all the sports including your own? Did you concentrate on walking? Well, you know, we're talking about the masses when I just mentioned that our goal is to get a million people in this country. And I'm talking to Sanjay Gupta. Dr Sanjay Gupta from CNN. Now who covered the Cuba swim for several years to you know, he's kind of known as America's doctor about helping us in twenty twenty go to fifty cities in fifty weeks. Every Saturday Bonnie, and I are going to do a ten mile walk in fifty capitals of fifty states. And you know, how would we get a million people out in the ocean swimming? Yes, I'm in love with the ocean. I wish I could give that experience to a million people not to mention five or ten, but who else is gonna swim. Let's say from Cuba to Florida. I guarantee you I'm gonna go to my grave, or or my, you know, cremation moment, and nobody else will have done that swim. That's how difficult it is to do. So am I here? Just inspire. One person. Twenty five million people were. Following the Cuba's went by the end. And you know, what they didn't care about swimming. They didn't care about sports. They didn't care if I was setting some new all the favor record. They cared about the message. They saw someone who you to give up and it seem without getting paid a sense who went for years not getting paid and and and giving their lives away from their families away from their jobs because they were chasing history. We were chasing a grand adventure that had never been done before. And all of the science, and the technology, and the tapping of the human spirit that comes with that swim wasn't just for me. And that's when wasn't just for swimmers. Well, this walking it's not about how hard can you heard? Can you want across the Kalahari desert in one hundred twenty degree heat? I bow down with high regard for the people who do run across the collar, Harry desert. I want a million people out doing what you and I did in Philadelphia. The other day in feeling the power of moving and feeling the high that comes with releasing your endorphins, we don't have to be an abject pain. So it's I'm not here doing spider people to chase those extreme endurance goals. Those people those bad as iron man, they do it. Anyway. Lead me to do it. Anyway, they don't need me. Yeah. Well, I will tell you. What are the things the reason I asked that question I wanted everybody to hear that listen to the enthusiasm. Listen to the excitement every time you go out the door, and you take a walk, even if you simply start parking further away from the ShopRite or every you go shopping in a mall. You're on an adventure. One foot. All that has to happen is one foot has to go in front of the other. And when we come back, we're gonna talk about Diana naiad book, find a way, it is also that just a story of of what she did. And so on a story, and she's trying to live her life now of what you can do. And one of the things we talk about all the time when it comes to successful aging here. Diane is to have a mission in life. Purposeless nece kills we talk about all the things that can kill you all the bad nutrition and lack of exercise, but of all of those things the physical things you can be killed even faster if you. I don't have a life mission in life purpose. And it doesn't matter. What it is that when Diana's case, it's very very clear mission. And I wanna come back, and I wanna talk to you next segment here about how you came about working with bunny on this. Why it's so important to you to get those million people not just for themselves. But what it does for you? And review up one of the things I've noticed when I Google you. And I look at all the wonderful things about you is your own ways telling people your age or one of those few people who want to inspire people to know that they can do this at any age we come back. It took a little bit about that. We're gonna talk about how you guys can get involved with a talk about how you can read the book and start with ever walk and all of the contact information you need so the next couple of minutes. Please everybody get out a pencil and paper, you're gonna wanna know gonna write this down. Everything's online for you. Whether it's a book, whether it's day in his own website is.

"My. And hello. Hello. Hello. This is Adrian Burg, and this is generation bowl the fountain of truth, and I wanna talk to you for a few minutes. This is our last segment of the show this week before thanksgiving, I've a four things have come up in my personal life. But it was generated by things that are happening in the world. And I wanted to discuss it with you. I wanted to be food for thought this holiday season one as I mentioned during a little toss. Speaking with Diana naiad is a loss of this lawsuit is actually taking place at home. It is not a US lawsuit. And I think it's a funny one to get some, publicity, but I really was listening and following it very closely. You may not know please do not hold this against me. But I am a lawyer so lost interest. And at least I was in my past life, and that was thirty five years. So it was quite a while this gentleman who is actually brought a law. Suit to have his birth certificate changed tweet younger person. He's sixty nine years old. And he wants it to be changed to forty five year old. And he says, look, I look good. I feel good. I've been on these self actualization questionnaires online that'll tell you. How old you are mentally and physically not trying to logically by Midland physical health is much better than my chronological upper at people who think of me as sixty nine might be discriminating against me. They don't know that I could do what a man of forty five can do particularly in the workplace. So if somebody can I self identify as a different gender than in, which they were born why can't I self identify as a different age that is something Smirke funny about it. There's something contemporary and trendy and buzz worthy about it. But think about it for a minute. Code. We ad-hoc simply say, we're a different age. Now, if you actually did that on the employment record that's not right, and it's actual fraud. If you did it on insurance policy internally insurance companies might have a different standard for you. If your health record shows better than somebody else of your age, but they still have you at a certain age to cost you more money. So, you know, if you think about it seriously, if you take this lawsuit seriously instead of as a joke, you could see some points here. What about dating if you saw the same exact person in the same exact clothing with the same exact level of wealth and education? And you knew one person was forty five years old. And you know, the other was sixty five years old. Would you think differently about them? I certainly you would even if everything else was the same except their age. So what do you think of that? Now, I thought about that for myself particularly this year because I've turned seventy. Would I want other people to think of me, it's younger? By case be interesting. Honestly, all of my life. I've made myself a little bit older. Why? Because I like the idea of showing off how I am at a certain age I liked blowing people's minds. Today, I had a business meeting, and I said to the person, and this is the second thing I wanted to talk to you about that. Now that I'm seventy I casually said, and he said what that was the reaction. I was looking for what you couldn't possibly be seventy. Now, I was a little disappointed because he thought I was in my early sixties. Sixty three I was going for like fifty five. But okay, I'll take the point is that. Although I do feel quite a bit younger, and I'm very superstitious. You know, that I hope that doesn't change. I wonder how I feel about working longer. And I challenge you to think about this. We are all working lower because we can't it's simply the case. There are people who were seventy years old that was considered to be a much much older adult today seventy is not sold at people are still in the workforce. If you are are you thinking of slowing down. Now, I have done that personally in many ways after a lot of consideration. Because I love the idea of worldwide travel. I love the idea of having time, and because I've recently become a grandmother because my kids live across country. I wanna have the opportunity to go see them for thanksgiving. At for Christmas and new years in January, and you just can't do that at one hundred percent pace. If you've got a boss or a business that you must carry on. So how are you feeling about it? Do you think that a time comes in life when you really want to slow down, even if you don't have to slow down? That's a good question to ask. You her Diana naiad say when I asked her whether there should be a senior Olympics. And so on she said, yes. Things get different as you get older that doesn't mean that you're lesser it. Just major different. So think about that for a moment, and sort of thing that happened was I saw show so a show called inner voices. And in that show was little boy he was eight years old. And he's saying the entire forty five minute show about a little boy who had lost his father in the war and his mother got depressed. So we hardly had any parents helping him in life, and what it meant to him to be able to have people in in school. Not believe him, and they were bullying. This is true. In my experience because I'm a grief facilitator for children who've lost a parent is their life very early as I did. So this show in a voices, this particular show called the cost. You was extremely important to me. And I realized that the mission and the time I give for this particular non profit organization called good grief, some of the most important moments of my life. So right now, it's going to be thanksgiving. You'd be hearing the show just a little bit before.

You know, that she is a legendary swimmer, you know, that she has a wonderful book at a find away. And we'll talk about why she named the book quite that. But from the Wall Street Journal to the Houston times, they call it a gripping thriller. Why? Well, of course, as a legendary swimmer, you may have remembered that she's been in the news since nineteen seventy five when she swam around then Hatton, much more. Recently a hundred and ten point eight six miles around Cuba to Florida and much more. But she also has a mission, and that mission is something that she, and I share we've talked about it many times, and then get up and move and walk. So we'll also talk about a wonderful mission.

And now with ever walk which is initiative Bonnie, and I started three and a half years ago to get as you said just people up enjoying the beautiful outdoors of the United States of America forgetting about politics for just a lead a few minutes of our day. We're looking up at the gorgeous trees last that. Philadelphia city is eye candy, you know, from the beautiful little cobblestone alleyways to the river with those both houses lined up majestically. It was just it was just I was in a state of. Sheer delight all day and all of us, you're on a high. You're doing something a little bit difficult that day we walked twenty six point two miles more than a lot of people would care to walk, and you don't need to walk that far. But you could go out and walk down your, you know, your the corner to get your newspaper and back and feel the earth under your feet feel the power of your stride start looking up at the horizon and the beautiful clouds and think who you wanna be what you wanna do with the rest of your life. So I'm I'm finding walking to be a kind of enlightenment and empowerment kind of thing in my life. And now Bonnie, and I are trying to bring frankly, we're trying to bring a million people into our movement, and that's a that's a tall order. But we think big and we're thinking big on this one too. And I think if anybody can do it it will be you. And certainly Bonnie, and and although you say, we don't talk politics, I have to tell everybody that one of the people who's been actually inspired by Dan is Hillary Clinton, you'll see her endorsing your book. And I and and there's just so many people have said, this is thrilling to them. They really couldn't understand how you could make this trip this journey by water over the charts. There they mentioned that you were not in any kind of shark cage. You're very very brave, and so I'm gonna ask you this question. Maybe a little different question. You've had your extremely brave person. And yet when you wanted to engage the world in physical activity you pick walking now, frankly, it's lovely. But there's no great three of it involved. Here. Why did you do that? Why of all the sports including your own? Did you concentrate on walking? Well, you know, we're talking about the masses when I just mentioned that our goal is to get a million people in this country. And I'm talking to Sanjay Gupta. Dr Sanjay Gupta from CNN. Now who covered the Cuba swim for several years to kind of known as America's doctor about helping us in twenty twenty go to fifty cities in fifty weeks every Saturday Bonnie, and we're going to do a ten mile walk in fifty capitals of fifty states. And you know, how would we get a million people out in the ocean swimming? Yes, I'm in love with the ocean. I wish I could give that experience to a million people not to mention five or ten, but who else is gonna swim. Let's say from Cuba to Florida. I guarantee you I'm gonna go to my grave, or or my, you know, cremation moment, and nobody else will have done that swim. That's how difficult it is to do. So am I here to just inspire one person? Twenty five million people were follow. Cuba's when by the end, and you know, what they didn't care about swimming. They didn't care about sports. Then didn't care if I was setting some new hall of Famer record they cared about the message. They saw someone who was to give up and it seem without getting paid a sense who went for years not getting paid and and and giving their lives away from their families away from their jobs because they were chasing history. We were chasing a grand adventure that had never been done before. And all of the science and technology, and the tapping of the human spirit that comes with that swim wasn't just for me. And that's when wasn't just for swimmers. Well, this walking it's not about how hard can you heard? Can you run across the caller? Hurry desert in twenty degree heat. I bow down with high regard for the people who do run across the collar, Harry desert. I want a million people out doing what you and I did in Philadelphia. The. The other day feeling the power of moving and feeling the high that comes with releasing your endorphins, we don't have to be an abject pain. So I'm not here doing spider people to chase those extreme endurance goals. Those people those bad as iron man, they do it. Anyway. Lead me, they do it. Anyway, they don't need me. Yeah. Well, I will tell you. What are the things the reason I asked I've question I wanted everybody to hear that listen to the enthusiasm. Listen to the excitement every time you go out the door, and you take a walk, even if you simply start parking further away from the ShopRite or every you go shopping in a mall. You're on an adventure. One foot. All that has to happen is one foot has to go in front of the other. And when we come back. We're gonna talk about Diana naiad book, find the way, it is also that just a story of of what she did. And so on it just story, and she's trying to live her life now of what you can do. And one of the things we talk about all the time when it comes to successful aging here. Diane is to have a mission in life. Purposeless nece kills we talk about all the things that can kill you all the bad nutrition and lack of exercise, but of all of those things the physical things you can be killed even faster if you. You don't have a life mission and life purpose. And it doesn't matter. What it is that when they case, it's a very very clear mission. And I wanna come back. I wanna talk to you next segment here about how you came about working with bunny on this. Why it's so important to you to get those million people that just for themselves, but what it does for you and review up one of the things I've noticed when I Google you. And I look at all the wonderful things about you is your own always telling people your age or one of those few people who want to inspire people to know that they can do this at any age we come back. It took a little bit about that. We're gonna talk about how you guys can get involved with a talk about how you can read the book and start with ever walk and all of the contact information you need so in the next couple of minutes.

You know, that she is a legendary swimmer, you know, that she has a wonderful book app. Find away, and we'll talk about why she named the book for quite that. But from the Wall Street Journal to the Houston times, they call it a gripping thriller. Why? Well, of course, as a legendary swimmer, you may have remembered that she's been in the news since nineteen seventy five when she saw around Manhattan. And much more recently a hundred and ten point eight six miles around Cuba to Florida and much more. But she also has a mission, and that mission is something that she, and I share we've talked about it many times, and then get up and move and book. So we'll also talk about a wonderful mission.

And every time I stood on that Havana shore, my teammates out in the boats. Bonnie my head handler best friend next to me on the shore. I blew Reveille.

"diana naiad" Discussed on Biz Talk Radio

"Hello. Hello. Hello. This is Adrian Burg, and this is generation bowl the fountain of truth, and I wanna talk to you for a few minutes. This is our last segment of the show this week before thanksgiving, I've a four things have come up in my personal life. But it was generated by things that are happening in the world. And I wanted to discuss it with you. I wanted to be food for thought. This holiday season. What as I mentioned during a little toss. Speaking with Diana naiad is a loss of this lawsuit is actually taking place at hall that is not a US lawsuit. And I think it's funny one gets up of listening, but I really was listening and following it very closely. You may not know please do not hold this against me. But I am a lawyer so lost interest. And at least I wasn't my past life. That was thirty five years. It was quite a while. This is a gentleman who was actually brought a lawsuit to have his birth certificate changed tweet younger person. He's sixty nine years old. And he wants it to be changed to forty five year old. And he says, look, I look good. I feel good. I've been on these self actualization questionnaires online that'll tell you. How old you are mentally and physically not chronologically by Midland? Physical health is much better than my. Chronological number at people who think of me as sixty nine might be discriminating against me. They don't know that I could do what a man of forty five can do particularly in the workplace. So if somebody could I self identify as a different gender than in, which they were born why can't I self identify as a different age that is something Smirke funny about it. There's something contemporary and trendy and buzzword e about it. But think about it for a minute. Code. We ad-hoc simply say we're at different age. Now, if you actually did that let's say and employment record that's not right, and it's actual fraud. If you did on insurance policy internally insurance companies might have a different standard for you. If your health record shows better than somebody else of your age, but they still have you at a certain age you to cost you more money. So, you know, if you think about it seriously, if you take this seriously instead of a joke, you could see some points here. What about dating if you saw the same exact person in the same exact clothing with the same exact level of wealth and education? And you knew one person was forty five years old. And you know, the other was sixty five years old, but you think differently about them. I certainly bet you would even if everything else was the same except their age. So what do you think of that? Now, I thought about that for myself. Particularly this year because I've turned seventy foot I want other people to think of me, it's younger. By case be now, honestly, all of my life. I've made myself a little bit older. Why? Because I like the idea of showing off how I am at a certain age. I liked blowing people's minds today. I had a business meeting, and I said to the person, and this is the second thing I wanted to talk to you about that. You know, now that I'm seventy I casually said, and he said what that was the reaction. I was looking for what you couldn't possibly be seventy. Now, I was a little disappointed because he thought I was in my early sixties. Sixty three I was going for like fifty five. But okay, I'll take the point is that. Although I do feel quite a bit younger and very superstitious. You know, that I hope that doesn't change. I wonder how I feel about working longer. And I challenge you to think about this. We are all working longer because we can't it's simply the case. There are people who were seventy years old that was considered to be a much much older adult today. Seventies not sold at people are still in the workforce. If you are are you thinking of slowing down. Now, I have done that personally in many ways after a lot of consideration. Because I love the idea of worldwide travel. I love the idea of having time because I've recently become a grandmother. Because my kids live across country. I wanna have the opportunity to go see them for thanksgiving. At for Christmas and New Year's genuine, you just cannot do that one hundred percent pace. If you've got a boss or a business that you must carry on. So how are you feeling about it? Do you think that a time cops in life when you really want to slow down, even if you don't have to slow down? That's a good question to ask. You her Diana naiad say when I asked her whether there should be a senior Olympics. And so on she said, yes. Things get different as you get older that doesn't mean that you're lesser it. Just means you're different. So think about that for a moment. And the third thing that happened was I sort of show so a show called inner voices. And in that show was a little boy he was eight years old. And he's saying the entire forty five minute show about a little boy who had lost his father in the war and his mother got depressed. So we hardly had any parents helping him in life, and what it meant to him to be able to have people in in school not bully him. And they were bullying. This is true in my experience because I'm a grief facilitator for children. Who've lost a parent is their life very early as I did. So this show in a voices this particular show called the costume was extremely important to me. And I realized that the mission the time I give for this particular non profit organization called good grief, some of the most important moments of my life. So right now, it's going to be thanksgiving. You be hearing the show just a little bit before.

"This is Adrian Bergen. This is generation bowl the fountain of truth. You know, I really don't know why. But it's the only syndicated show on successful aging in the country. They should be does. Because it's the one thing that we're all doing at the same time actually worldwide. And what we do what we bring to the table is. We have really incredible guests every single week that come from different aspects of successful aging from the psychological point of view, the physical point of view religious, philosophical what to do next in life. And I pointed out to everyone at aging starts at age thirty. This is not for people who are sixty or sixty five affect my blog. And I hope you'll all Google it. Take read of it. We have now thirty thousand subscribers is aging for beginners. Right. Well, we all began aging somewhere. But today, I'm speaking with Diana naiad, who's an athlete if. You really want to see something beautiful take a look at her photos online. Not just the beauty. It's it's really quite remarkable. And you probably blushes, but it really is true. It it's just looking at you is it's racial from the point of view of feeling that you could be strong and get age does not seem to be a factor. So we're gonna talk a little bit. Now, Diana about your book, find a way, and what what what did you come up with that topic because we all are trying to find a way or that title? I should say. I'll tell you the truth, you know, and you've been in this world before when you finish a book. One of the issues is the cover. Another issue is the title, and I wanted to call my book one wild and precious life with a tribute to Mary Oliver, the poets and her opponent one wild and precious life just that just grips me that phrase is we've only got one, and it is that precious every day, you waste you will never get back again. But Mary Oliver asks me politely, technically, you can't, you know, keep someone from naming a book anything. Yeah. You could you could write a book and call it the bible if you wanted to get copyright. Well, that's true. But I've got to be respectful of Mary Oliver, you know, that that that poem in her lines in there, the last two lines of that particular poem the summer's day, which go tell me, what is it you're doing with this one wild and precious life of yours when I say that on stage to people they they Daf they lean back like, whoa. Whoa. Am I wasting my one wild and precious? Like Mary Oliver asks me, not to title, my book that way, she worked even though she was going to have the credit for it. She she worked hard to come up with that herself. And I have to respect her on the so the way find a way came out was when we were on the shore in Havana for the fifth time, and I was about to leap looking out at that far away horizon over a hundred miles of treacherous ocean. And we already had been could have died should have died. From the box jellyfish. The two years before your sixty mile an hour. Tropical storms win come in in a heartbeat. It's it's terrifying out there at times and absolutely glorious. You know, the magnificent nature mother nature on steroids at other times, Bonnie grabbed my shoulders. My best friend Bonnie who had been through all every hour of the long grueling training sessions with me, she grabbed my shoulders, she looked in my eyes. And she said, let's find a way, and I could Felipe and we found our way. So that's why we called the book that and to a nod to something you said earlier Adrian is that I like to think as as much as I'm engaged in my own private life. And I want this one wild and precious life to be as as sterling and as uplifting as it can be, and it's fun is it can be. I am engaged in those around me. My inner circle the next, sir. Circle and the world at large. I try to do my little part. And so I think that that phrase find a way and the publisher Knopf like this about it was it. It means you to you know, you have dreams, you know, you you obstacles you have heartache, and you can if you just if you're just tenacious each time, you get knocked down if you get back up, and you get knocked down and you get back up again each time you get back up. You're a step closer to finding your way toward your other shore. Whatever your other shore may be now before further just tell everybody how they could find ever walk, and that's this wonderful organization where you could walk. No matter what state you're in. And I mean state both ways so the capital in terms of geography, and what physical state you're in. You can get out there. So tell us what to find ever walk and also the book find a way. Yeah. Well, every walk is just that simple. It's ever walked dot com. Just come to our. Website. You know, what we encourage everybody to do is just join our nation's ever walked nation. You don't have to pay anything. Just quick join you must promise we asked you to pledge on your honor that you're gonna walk three times a week some people that might mean like you, you know, a pretty big long walk three times a week. Other people is just getting started. They haven't done anything in years, but they can walk. They can get out that door walk down the end of the block walk back. They can literally walk in place in front of their television. So we asked Deepal to join ever walk nation. And once you do that you'll you'll get our regular newsletter. You'll see what we're up to next year in October. We're we don't have the dates yet. But next fall, we're going go come and do one of what we call our epic walks. We do lots of shorter things. We're going to have online competitions two thousand nineteen you know, little little things where you log your miles and see if you can log on more than you did last month, etc. And we have clubs to join. But we're gonna. Do our epic walk from Philly down to DC. And when I was in Philadelphia doing that walk with you a couple of weeks ago, we we drove the whole course down to DC. It's magnificent the Maryland farmland heading into Baltimore. And of course, you know, wondrous Washington DC itself. So that's that's the next one. We're gonna do kind of in over in the east coast, and I will tell everyone we're redoing my website by personal website. And you don't know this Diana, but I'm really planning to do the key west walk because I love the idea that you walk and then you help habitat for humanity. And if so it's going to be all over the site because the combination of physical purposefulness and Michigan purpose purposefulness is really very hard to find you really. I would love it. We would love it. If you join us down there. You know, we as I said, we do a number of things. So last year, they key west key west itself, but the keys, and you know, the keys are very close to my heart having trained there lived there during the whole preparation for the Cuba swin all those years. Those people just they came out they came out and helped us in every possible way. And they're actually making a statue of me, a big bronze statue, and I told them when they make it that when I'm ninety I'm gonna go and get a beach chair and sit under the shadow of the seven year old people. Go by say, Yep. Yeah. Yeah. It can't be west is one of the, you know, a little bit different. Our ethics are are long seven day hundred forty mile walk. And then as I said, we have competitions online starting January. But the key west is what you call and what we call a service walk. So it's the first week of April again, you can find online, of course, we're on Facebook and Instagram and all that stuff to ever walk and. And we'll take a little bit of a break. Everyone dot com..

And every time I stood on that Havana shore, my teammates out in the boat. Bonnie my head handler and best friend next to me on the shore. I blew Reveille. I thought bop bop. Bop. Bop, bop. And that means we all know what it means all the world around. It means it to the military. But it means it to us civilians to get up get up at dawn. Don't miss this day, go after whatever you're going after you might not get there. You might not get there today, but you are not gonna sleep your life away. So that's that's kind of my song and now with ever walk which is initiative Bonnie, and I started three and a half years ago to get as you said just people up enjoying the beautiful outdoors of the United States of America forgetting about politics for just a few minutes of our day looking up at the gorgeous trees last that philidelphia's city is eye candy, you know, from the beautiful little cobblestone alleyways to the river with those both houses lined up majestically. It was just it was just I was in a state of. Sheer delight all day and all of us, you're on a high. You're doing something a little bit difficult that day we walk twenty six point two miles more than a lot of people would care to walk, and you don't need to walk that far. But you could go out and walk down to the corner to get your newspaper and back and feel their earth under your feet feel the power of your stride. You know, you start looking at the horizon and the beautiful clouds and think who you wanna be what you wanna do with the rest of your life. So I'm I'm finding walking to be a kind of enlightenment and empowerment kind of thing in my life. And now Bonnie, and I are trying to bring frankly, we're trying to bring a million people into our movement, and that's a that's a tall order. But we think big and we're thinking big on this one too. Yeah. And I think if anybody can do it it will do and certainly Bonnie, and and though you say, we don't talk politics. I have to tell everybody that one of the people who's been actually inspired by Diane is Hillary Clinton, you'll see her endorsing your book. And I and and it's just so many people have said, this is thrilling to them. They really couldn't understand how you could make this trip this journey by water over the charts. There they mentioned that you were not in any kind of shark cage. You're very very brave, and so I'm going to ask you this question. Maybe a little different question. You've had your extremely brave person. And yet when you wanted to engage the world in physical activity you picked walking, frankly, it's lovely. But there's no great for you. It involved here. Why did you do that? Why of all the sports including your own? Did you concentrate on walking? Well, you know, we're talking about the masses when I just mentioned that our goal is to get a million people in this country. And I'm talking to Sanjay Gupta. Dr Sanjay Gupta from CNN. Now who covered the Cuba swim for several years to you know, he's known as America's doctor about helping us in twenty twenty go to fifty cities in fifty weeks every Saturday body, and I are going to do a ten mile walk in fifty capitals of fifty states. And you know, how would we get a million people out in the ocean swimming? Yes, I'm in love with the ocean. I wish I could give that experience to a million people not to mention five or ten, but who else is gonna swim. Let's say from Cuba to Florida. I guarantee you I'm gonna go to my grave, or or my, you know, cremation moment, and nobody else will have done that swim. That's how difficult it is to do. So am I here? Just inspire. One person. Twenty five million people were follow. Cuba's went by the end. And you know, what they didn't care about swimming. They didn't care about the sports. They didn't care if I was setting some new all favor record. They cared about the message. They saw someone who was to give up and team without getting paid a sense who went for years not getting paid and and and giving their lives away from their families away from their jobs because they were chasing history. We were chasing a grand adventure that had never been done before. And all of the science, and the technology, and the tapping of the human spirit that comes with that swim wasn't just for me. And that's when wasn't just for swimmers. Well, this walking it's not about how hard can you heard? Can you want across the Kalahari desert and one hundred twenty degree heat? I bowed down with high regard for the people who do run across the collar, Harry desert. I want a million people out doing what you and I did in Philadelphia. The other day feeling the power of moving and feeling the high that comes with releasing your endorphins, we don't have to be an abject pain. So I'm not here doing spider people to chase those extreme endurance goals. Those people those bad ass iron man, they do it. Anyway. Lead me to do it. Anyway, they don't need me. Yeah. Well, I will tell you. What are the things the reason I asked that question I want everybody to hear that listen to the enthusiasm. Listen to the excitement every time you go out the door, and you take a walk, even if you simply start parking further away from the ShopRite or every you go shopping in a mall. You're on an adventure. One foot. All that has to happen is one foot has to go in front of the other. And when we come back, we're going to talk about Diana diet book, find a way, it is also not just a story of what she did. And so on it's a story, and she's trying to live her life. Now what you can do. And one of the things we talk about all the time when it comes to successful aging here. Diane is to have a mission in life. Purposeless nece kills we talk about all the things that can kill you all the bad nutrition and lack of exercise, but of all of those things the physical things you could be killed even faster if you. Don't have a life mission in life purpose. And it doesn't matter. What it is the case. It's very very clear mission. And I wanna come back. I wanna talk to you and our next segment here about how you came about working with bunny on this. Why it's so important to you to get those million people not just for themselves. But what it does for you? And review up one of the things I've noticed when I Google you. And I look at all the wonderful things about you is your own always telling people your age or one of those few people who want to inspire people to know that they can do this at any age we come back. It took a little bit about that. We're gonna talk about how you guys can get involved with a talk about how you can read the book and start with ever walk and all of the contact information you need so the next couple of minutes.

"Don't see wrinkles. On my head and not my shoulder and a low. Hello, hello. This is Adrian Bergen. This is generation bolt the fountain of truth, and there's a lot of truth that come out during our show. But today part of that truth is that we can be inspired by others. And if we talked about a walking inspiration machine, we're gonna be talking about Diana naiad that she's one of those folks, I think actually needs no introduction because for many many decades, actually you've been hearing about her in the news. You know, that she is a legendary stripper, you know, that she has a wonderful book out find away, and we'll talk about why she named the book quite that. But from the Wall Street Journal to the Houston times, they call it a gripping thriller. Why? Well, of course, as a legendary swimmer you may have remembered that she's been in the news since nineteen seventy five. When she saw around Manhattan, much more recently a hundred and ten point eight six miles around Cuba to Florida and much more. But she also has a mission, and that mission is something that she, and I share we've talked about it many times, and that is get up and move and book. So we'll also talk about wonderful mission. She has that she's promoting called ever walk. We'll find out exactly what that's about. So in our quest to successful aging. Was speaking today with Diana diet? So thank you so much for being on the show today. It's entirely my pleasure. And I must say no we're gonna get into walking that a couple of weeks ago when you and I and a couple of hundred other people walked the beautiful city of Philadelphia all day long. I know I was out there for ten hours. I love spending time with you. You're such a forceful, energetic personality. So I'm so glad we're in this world of walking together Adrian, well, we are and you can see some videos on ever walk and on free workers. But what I will tell you. If you were there. You would have just been thrilled, Diana, not only let us, but she bugles us. So tell us a little bit about that. And let us know about ever walk. Clearly, I'm not a professional horn player. There's a there's a a little bit of comic relief to my bugle playing. But. You know, every time and it was five times. I tried to make it across that epic ocean. They call it the Mount Everest of the earth's oceans that straight between Havana, Cuba and Key West Florida. The great swimmers of the world had tried since nineteen fifty including me as you mentioned way back in nineteen seventy eight it's kind of the holy grail. All the obstacles, you could name the mighty Gulfstream the particular sharks the deadly box jellyfish. I I could make you a long long had tried to make it across. And every time I stood on that Havana shore, my teammates out in the boats. Bonnie my head handler and best friend next to me on the shore. I blew Reveille. I thought I thought.

Don't miss this day, go after whatever you're going after you might not get there. You might not get there today, but you are not gonna sleep your life away. So that's that's kinda my song. And now with ever walk which is initiative Bonnie, and I started three and a half years ago to get as you said just people up enjoying the beautiful outdoors of the United States of America forgetting about politics for just a lethal few minutes of our day. We're looking up at the gorgeous trees last that Philadelphia city is I candy, you know, from the beautiful little cobblestone alleyways to the Cuco river with those both houses lined up majestically.

"Wide world. Sports broadcasting and I thought. I'm thirty. Retire from sports. I don't know. And I started working and I worked at thirty years. But I'll tell you the truth by the end of after the year. And it's not what you do. I admire all of you guys who called and tell stories and. Air wisdom of sports to eleven of poetry. It's an art unto itself, but I personally feel like a spectator at the end of thirty years. Sixty. I thought oh. Other people around. Excellent. Their own. I wanna be a doer again. And I wanna go way back in. Bruce offered me a job, and I had been you know, the back in my youth. I said, you know, what? Probably all my friends. Tell me I'm a fool, but I don't wanna be a talker in a in a in a in a storyteller. I want to be a doer. Well today, I admire talking and storytelling. And but I tell you I wanted that. I wanted to be a doer one more time. Well, and I get to to admire the doers because I get to talk with you. Tell me tell me about the Cuba swim. The the first attempt was really challenging to read. I can only imagine how much worse it was to go through you almost died. That is not an exaggeration those box jellyfish, which stung you repeatedly can be lethal. Tell me tell me a little bit about the mental struggle of having to come to terms with stopping which you have fantastic quotes about how quitting will haunt you. But having to quit, and then and then. Having that sit there for so many years, and so many more attempts. Well, and and and technically the box jellyfish was later wasn't the first attempt. Jellyfish. The third attempt when I was fifty two years old that was, but it doesn't matter. I didn't what you're getting at is. Failed. I failed. Yeah. It's similar to very rarely do the people who have resolve. Mother nature expedition. Endurance events on earth. Rarely did those people who have that kind of discipline and that kind of. Okay. They quit and say, oh, you know, this is too much. I didn't enough. No, most of those people there turned back because of the condition. Because the universe was just too darn big people go to Mount Everest. And sometimes decades. Every year every other year, and they can't make it not because they didn't train enough and prepare enough and have enough. You know, a good team around them. It's because the wind came up at a hundred miles an hour at the top of the world, and they just couldn't abide by the kitchen. The. That my didn't make it across all about every time. I left no stone unturned, I did every swim. If on a forty hour training swim, and there was a whipping wind day, and I had been vomiting a little bit. And I came into the dock at night, and it was thirteen hours and fifty eight minutes that being up. The same as ours. No, not familiar with like, I I I thought if you can. Moment. The next time. The okay to even more. We'll be. So when I hit the dock at thirteen fifty eight bonding trainer note, I know you're not gonna like this. I know you're sick. You're tired turnaround. Go a minute out. I'll blow the whistle when you come back in. We'll have a true fourteen hours. So when I stood on that sure in Cuba. I am the fifth time. Actually, I said to my team. I've done everything I promise you because people my team. They never got paid a stunt. They will all their time with their family time away from their jobs to choose history car global friendships for life. To pursue the grand adventure of the planet. And I stood there and said something unexpected might come away a five mile an hour wind. Out. There might come up within two minutes and blow are so far. Course, we have no hope. A box. Yummy might try to take my wife shot might come up and try to take my leg all kinds of warming. Warming. Eddie's is mother nature on steroids out there. But I said to them that's fine. If we a universe that won't let us get a car. We'll all make a decision. We'll have an intelligent talk about it. You'll say it's too bad. This wasn't our day. But I promise you won't be said, I just don't have it too. Big for me. I didn't prepare enough. I promise you it won't be quit. So when you say, it's tough to quit. I never look at a quitting and those to the swim. It was more intelligent discussion with the navigator behead handler guy. The courts gets together and says absolutely cannot needed to shore. Let's get real. Let's come back another day. That's how all those four happened. It was. Remarkable to for what is on paper, and in many people's heads of very independent sport. How I'd love how you stressed the value of your team your quality of your team. You're talking about it in the book, you talked about it just now it's it teamwork makes the dream work. And that's exactly what you are. You're preaching. It's undeniable. I don't care what we do in life. You know, nobody goes it alone. I don't I don't care. How solitaire? If you want with ESPN if you weren't to come follow on the entire fifty three hours a Kach, let's say with the drone. A helicopter. Okay. You would only see one women come up hundreds of thousands of times, the left arm and the wider, but under me at night in the pitch black of night with no one because we don't use wipes. They attract jelly cracks shock, and my guy my divers shark experts in tropical waters, they put my life ahead of things. Slam with me all night, it's difficult against the current and against the resistance of the water underneath trying to keep up with the swimmer is going fast, and they take shifts. They are wide by the end of that might. But they are there with me. My kayakers are carrying electronic she'll put out that elliptical. Balmy. My handler literally finds a the drop of that. I don't think I have any more. Knows how to summit for me. The medical team are the university of Miami emergency doctors there the sports medicine guys. They know how to get us through this thing the navigator John Bartlett virtual mathematical, you're trying to go north at two miles an hour against the vector of a car. It's going. At five and six miles an hour. It's almost impossible to go north. But he every fifteen minutes would set a slightly different. Mathematical course, and Ed. Oh, of course that stream when I walk up on that beach. Am I gonna you know? Pound my chest and say, I get it. I did it all by myself.

"This is beyond sports Hannah's stealing with you today and thrilled to be talking to my guest and thrilled that you guys get to hear her as well, Diana naiad is known to so many most of the world, she's downright famous. Not only as the woman who is the first to swim around Manhattan with the woman who made the swim from Cuba to the US shoreline, and she joins me on the phone. Currently, diana. Thank you so much for your time. And it's my pleasure. I look forward to our conversation where where are we going start? Oh, well, one I want to start by telling people about your book, it is called find a way it is available now, and I have to tell you. I was thrilled. And surprised by how easy read it was. And how well written. It was in just how much you shared. Well, thank you. You know, you get to be a certain age. I now sixty six and so, you know, you live a life meet remarkable people travel the wool lucky I've been fortunate. I've had a license doomed with adventure and privilege and travel, and and remarkable human beings as I said, so you sit down to write a memoir. What is a memoir? I mean, you know, is it cradle to grave is it everything that's ever happened to you and everything you've ever done. No, it's a slice of life. And you know, so it's difficult. I found the most difficult part about it was what do I share and the tuba swim was such a holy grail. For me was such an emblem of a thirty five year chase of a dream in and actually what back farther than that. If you talk about what was floating around in my imagination about it wasn't. It wasn't an athletic event. To me wasn't another swim. It was the. Degree of waging down and touching every fiber of your potential every drop of your could summon surrounding yourself with a team. You felt the same commitment to friendship to adventure the history. And so this book, you know, as you know, is drives through the narrative of that swim. But again, I've lived a life also. And so the the light comes breathing through the pages to, and I I put my authentic self into it, and it it means a lot to me that you you giving it a good review. You're welcome. It is deserved. I will share that. Some of what I want to chat about occurs at the beginning of the book because I found find a way a very telling title not just that you found a way to do the Cuba swim. You found a way to go around Manhattan, you found a way to do so many of your athletic accomplishments. What I found was telling was that you found a way to achieve beyond abuse. You found a way to become your own authentic self through many things that would crush a lesser soul. I guess so although, you know, I mean, I think one life lesson you learn as you go along you don't compare yourself to others. You know, I remember when I was a kid going into a dentist or a doctor's office, if somebody at that old disease Awada poem, you know, on the on the side of the door. And I remember one of the phrases of it was is be careful. You know, I'm paraphrasing but don't ever compare yourself. Don't compare your your count don't compare your pain don't compare your life to anybody else's your, you know, we each of us have this unique fifty sixty seventy eighty ninety years, and it's up to you. You know, you can learn from other people, but I decided not to wallow in that pain, you know, sexual abuse of crime on a young person. You know, what makes me so damn? Mad Wendy's adult preachers, teachers coaches, you know, parents stepparents abused a young person. This is the person they're supposed to be teaching values to they're supposed to be sending out in the world with tremendous self, esteem and joy for life. And when you're writing and humiliated and can't trust him more as a as a little kid. It's it it can be scarring and on the other hand, my gosh, I'd met people who've been through the holocaust I met people, of course, who've come back from her walk without a leg. You know, people have suffered far far worse than I've suffered but sexual abuse of young people is an epidemic out there. What's? Statistic. These days one of the world. Six boys you have been through molestation or wait by the time eighteen by somebody. They know. So it's up to me. It's my responsibility to speak up to be angry about it to see if we can get young people to know that they can turn the light on the second of stars and say, no, not me. Get your hands off me. I'm going to the principal. I'm going to my mother, I'm going to the neighbor you're not gonna get away with this. Hopefully, we're in a new era, and we can make some headway about this. But trust me, my life has been filled with positive. And I remember all the time well in that is an incredible lesson in itself in that you appreciate the good beyond the bad or beyond the challenges. But also, I love that you spend time teaching about things that were hurtful to you in. So that it can't it won't happen as frequently or that people know to be an advocate for those children or young adults who come forward. So that they are believed in that they are supported. No. Yeah. That's a good way to put it, and you know, for me. You said to me what what what's the top value? You have in life. And I do I involved value integrity, and and honesty and passion, you know? I've I've got a lot of, you know, things that I doubt you. But I think more than anything I value engagement. I value people. I don't have many judgments on people except sexual abusers. But I, you know, I I don't judge people. I, you know, we all have different religions worldviews philosophies way, we wanna go about our individual lives. I don't have many judgments except of the seven billion people on the planet about half and a half billion don't have enough. They don't have enough to eat. They don't have a dwelling. They don't have safety. They don't have enough water to drink and three and a half of the other billion choices some more than others. Agreed. But we have choices and my choice. He's to engage. I don't wanna lock the door. And oh this happened. To me. I'm going to tweet. I'm gonna wanna way I'm going to be stylish. No, I am going to go down and help my neighbors. If they need help I'm gonna go out and be part of this rule. This queasy chaotic world we live in. I'm going to be a leader. I'm going to be a doer. And I'm going to speak out. You know, if I've been through something tough, I'm gonna speak out. Just in case it helps not young person out there knowing what to do if it's going to happen to her or here. Oh, sister, preach. This is fantastic. Yes, it is. It's so refreshing to. Is becoming more common for people to share this. And I love I hate that. They that they have gone through these struggles and had this happened. But I am so proud every time somebody goes, it's it's gonna be okay. And I love the it gets better program for those dealing with sexual identity crisis or or working to that. Which you again are also very open about your sexual identity, which is again, something that wasn't necessarily talked about decades ago years ago, and now now it's something that people go. Okay. That's who you are. I think it's gone beyond that, I think it's cool. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Great, friends and say. Yes with you. Because you're Abby SPN and my David ABC sports. Then again, you know, I can look at the positive here. I am working next to Jim McKay. I'm covering the New York. Marathon font. I mean, you know, I'm not gonna complain about that ten years on the other hand, it was a kosher Burton, culture and.

I couldn't bring the beard that it's so I was gay, and I was out, and there are friends of mine who say, you know, you had the gift of you had, you know, every potential to move ahead of that career. But as a woman, then promoting you and having you on the air, then when you get known on meteor what happens let's say, it's. What to do I within your event and you're just chatting on the air? And one of you said, hey, what are you doing for the weekend? Well, let's say the guy says, oh, my wife, and my kids tonight are going up cow. We're gonna have a ball. What are you doing? And what do I say if I say, my wife or my girlfriend, right? You know, maybe maybe today, but mud even not even so much today, the sports announcer, but plus not never that would have been me. I would have been saying. Yeah. Well, but you know, the little wife, and I are. And then what instead of a little wiping you anymore?
