This Woman Rocks!

I've said a few times that I don't have any age issues. This video is a great example of why.

This woman is 86 and can still do that. O_O I couldn't have done that at twenty. Health and fitness often vary with age, but if you're unhealthy or out of shape it's not necessarily because you're old. You might not even be old. And you can be old and still be able to do a pretty darned impressive gymnastics routine, if you work at it and have good genes. Being healthy is great and being unhealthy sucks, and you can be either one at any age.

Okay, maybe the lady wouldn't win any Olympic medals with that routine, but damn! She still rocks! :D


PS -- yes, I changed the template for this blog, because I'm really tired of not being able to post YouTube videos. I don't do it often, but when I want to it's annoying to have them not fit on that skinny post window the default-default gives you. :/ I like wider post windows anyway, so here we are. :)

Wow indeed!

Charles -- isn't it? I just had to share. :)

Considering I've NEVER been able to do that, more power to her!

Suzan -- me neither. I don't feel bad when some teen or twenty-something kicks my ass (even my own teen or twenty-something ass) at this kind of thing, but a woman old enough to be my mom with some years to spare? All I can say is wow. :D
