Check Out These Amazing Older Athletes!

I saw this posted to Facebook this morning:

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-bristol-40886339

These are photographs from the recent European Masters Athletics Championships. Masters Athletics is a class of athletes that are over 35. All of the athletes in this pictorial are older than 60. I love seeing these pictures. It certainly motivates me to keep moving. I can get so "results" oriented that I sometimes forget what exercise is really doing for me. It has greatly improved my quality of life. I believe it will continue to serve me well as I get older.
