Discover How Age 70+ can be Super Active and Inspiring!
We are amazed by (1) a Guinness Book grandmother and (2) Max Linsky's special podcast tailored to seniors.

Our weight-lifting grandma, Edith Murway-Traina from Florida, at age 98 entered the 2019 Guinness Book of World Records as the “oldest female competitive powerlifter.” She was able to deadlift 74kg (163 pounds) and bench press 29kg (about 64 pounds) – more than many women half her age could manage. 

Edith’s powerlifting journey began at the age of 91 when she joined her local gym on the suggestion of a long-time friend. Edith, a former professional dancer, started first to pick up a few bars after watching “those ladies doing their thing” to be part of the team, then later started to take the sport seriously with the help of a trainer. In her interview by Robyn Lucas in YOU of News24.com, she stated that “As a performer and a dancer, applause was always a very important part of my enjoyment. I was happier each time I got more and more applause. ”

She started competing in 2013, has competed in 14 competitions and won nine of those events. The pandemic has slowed down her competition. She is preparing for her next powerlifting competition which should take place in this month (November).
The special podcast "70 over 70" has been created by Max Linsky. It is a show about how to make the most of the time that people over 70 have left. Max talks to 70 remarkable people, all over the age of 70, not just about their past but also about their lives right now. His podcast has currently 27 episodes. Some of his famous guests are Dionne Warwick and Norman Lear.

In his interview with Audie Cornish of NPR, Max explained that he felt forced to face his father’s mortality when his dad had heart surgery just before Christmas last year. He started to record his father’s conversations.

In his most recent podcast he interviewed Russell Banks on “The Difference Between Loneliness and Solitude.” Last September, Diana Nyad’s talk was titled “I’m in the Prime of My Life.”  

Max focuses on the answers to questions like:
  • What does it mean to live well?
  • What are we looking for in our senior years?
  • How do we learn, at this stage of our lives, to let go?

Max is looking for more people over 70 to tell their stories. To nominate yourself or someone else you can send an email to 70over70@pineapple.fm or call 302-659-7070. Maybe your story can inspire others!

As always, we are here to help you in your later years or if you or a family member have special needs. Feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,
Yahne
