jumps as well as she did at 18 years old, despite being heavier and
having a different body composition. "

Re: Geezer Skater News

S, great article. Thanks for link to complete story. This morning
network news featured a 93-year old man (who looked like he was in his
late 60's or early 70's) who was absolutely amazing. This man
snowboards with the kids, swims laps, uses a rowing machine and in line
skates. It was so inspirational. Apparently he skied for many years.
I tell you, I had a better skate day today, just being motivated by
that news feature. That we can all be doing as well when we are 93.

God blesses skiers. It is written, when you get off the lift up top
and come around, you stop and look across the mountains and
give thanks.
