It's not easy swimming across the ocean. Diana Nyad told Ellen about the things she had to do to protect her body, and about her specially designed mask!

This woman is so brave and talented, I am not sure how many people understand what it is like to get stung by all those Jellyfish.
I do I travel back and forth to the Florida Keys, ( I take care of terminally ill patients, I make them laugh, just like Ellen)anyway I found myself in a bunch of Jellyfish while snorkeling and I had blisters on my arm and the top of my breast and man that stings! I was lucky I was not doing anything as dramatic as Diana so Bob a friend peed on me and as crazy as it sounds it works! Bob of course got very carried away and wanted to pee all over me, but that's for another time:)
