Getting older doesn’t have to be depressing. There are plenty of people who become successful in their older years and learn to rock whatever age they are. Being happy and active can keep you healthier more than having good genes.
Here are some people who are an inspiration because of how gracefully they are aging.

4. Jim Arrington, 85 years old
At 85, Jim is the world’s oldest bodybuilder. He started when he was only 15 years old! He still looks great and was entered into the Guinness World Records book this year.
5. Maye Musk, 70 years old

6. Lauren Hutton, 74 years old

7. Julia Hawkins, 102 years old
[ENGLISH] MEET THE INCREDIBLE JULIA HAWKINS Julia Hawkins runs the 100-meter dash during the USA Track and Field Outdoors Masters Championships on Saturday at LSU's Bernie Moore Stadium. Hawkins, 101, set the world record in the 100 for competitors older than 100 with a time of 40.12. If Julia Hawkins’ world record time of 40.12 seconds in the 100-meter dash doesn’t seem like blazing speed, maybe consider the fact she was born during World War I. Hawkins ran faster at the Senior Games earlier this year, but records aren’t officially ratified until December. If for some reason her previous run is not accepted, Saturday’s time becomes the record. “I didn’t feel like I was (breaking the record),” Hawkins said. “Other times I felt like I was flying. This time, I wasn’t feeling like I was going that fast.” ———————————————————— [ESPAÑOL] CONOCE A LA INCREÍBLE JULIA HAWKINS Julia Hawkins corre los 100 metros planos durante el Campeonato Masters de Atletismo de Estados Unidos el sábado en el estadio Bernie Moore de LSU. Hawkins, 101, estableció el récord mundial en los 100 para competidores mayores de 100 con un tiempo de 40,12. Si el tiempo récord mundial de Julia Hawkins de 40,12 segundos en los 100 metros planos no parece una velocidad ardiente, considera el hecho de que nació durante la Primera Guerra Mundial. Hawkins corrió más rápido en los Juegos Senior a principios de este año, pero los récords no se ratifican oficialmente hasta diciembre. Si por alguna razón su carrera anterior no es aceptada, el tiempo del sábado se convierte en el récord. "No me sentía como si estuviera (rompiendo el récord)", dijo Hawkins. Otras veces sentí que estaba volando. Esta vez, no sentía que iba tan rápido. • #somosrunners #run #runner #runners #running #runningmotivation #runhappy #runstrong #athletics #atletismo #correr #corredor #corredores #crosscountry #findyourstrong #justdoit #maraton #marathon #marathontraining #sofast #trailrunning #track #trackandfield #100m #worldrecord #oldrunner #seniorrunner #seniorcitizengoals #juliahawkins #impossibleisnothing
