But she suggested that even she has a limit.

"Sitting here, I can’t address that," Nyad said. "I have to say, it’s too much. I’ve asked too many people to put in too much. We know what we’re doing. This has to be it. It just has to be."

Nyad set a world mark for open-water swimming without a wetsuit in 1979 by crossing 102 miles from the Bahamas to Florida.

A writer, journalist and motivational speaker, she said she hopes to inspire people of all ages to live active lives.

"Instead of staying on the couch for a lifetime and letting this precious time go by, why not be bold?" she said. "Be fiercely bold, and go out and chase your dreams."
