This morning, daredevil Nik Wallenda made history by walking across one of Central Florida’s newest attractions, The Orlando Eye.

You could feel the anxiety build as the wheel began making its move. We all knew Nik was inside one of the capsules.

Heavy rain showers were in the forecast for this morning, someone was looking out for Nik, and us. I had watched an interview earlier, his main concern was how slippery the finish was on the beams.  Can you imagine how slippery it would have been if there would have been rain?  My heart was already pounding out of my chest.

Throughout the entire walk, he was communicating with the TODAY Show.  I can barely walk and chew gum at the same time, but he was able to balance on a beam and talk to a major news network at the same time.  I really need to up my game.
