The Wonder Years

Filled with inspiring stories, insightful interviews, and stunning color photography from Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Rick Rickman, this incredible book showcases the unique power and grace of today's senior athletes. Spanning a broad spectrum of sports, the profiles inside paint an intimate portrait of senior swimmers, runners, and others who continue to compete well into their later years. Also including an in-depth look at the spirited and increasingly popular U.S. Senior Games, The Wonder Years triumphs over the conventional wisdom that growing older means slowing down.

Im very proud to call Janet Freeman.. the athlete in the first section, My Grandma! I would like to thank everyone involved with this book for picking her to write about. I know she feels very special, as we all do. She is an amazing woman who has lived a crazy life that I could never keep up with now at the age of only 25! (And yes.. I've tried!). It is great that all these athletes get recognized for all they have done and are still doing! It's a great book and a real inspiration to everyone!
