I’m in Love With Dara Torres August 15, 2008

Yep, this woman is pretty awesome. At 41, she’s the oldest Olympic swimming medalist. She’s the prime example of staying active throughout life. Of course, lucky her, she gets rewarded with Olympic medals for her exercise regimen… Nonetheless, this video is pretty inspiring (filmed before Beijing):



I find it funny that Matt Lauer asks her about performance enhancing drugs… as if a 41 year old couldn’t accomplish what she’s done. Her response is classic, “You know, maybe I’m a little more athletically gifted than you are.” Ha! Take that Matt!

Breathe in, Peace out…

    I like the video! Wow, watching the Olympics makes me want to work out hard, 12 more weeks of pregnancy and then I can keep my body to myself for awhile.
