Inspiration Friday.

Dear Diary,

This is Olga, and I wish I had this on a poster.

 

Olga cannot jump further than me or run faster than me, unlike most...

 

she cannot throw a shotput or discus further than me.

 

Yet, she is still considered one of the finest athletes in the world, because she consistently sets records in her age group in the long jump and other events.

This year, she will be 94. Not surprisingly, scientists are studying her.

You can read more about Olga here.

2016

Even though I was in awful shape in 2016 I was still stubborn and foohardy...so I spent a year running down whatever fitness base I had left...
