Age is No Barrier (Continued): 12. Sandra

Sandra -- who goes by "Mom" -- is Edgard's wife and mother of three running daughters.  
She greets customers, takes orders and handles the cash register at the Neighborhood Cafe.  


Sandra is nearly 80 years old.  Back in the 1980s, Mom was one of the family runners who ran across the USA on two successive years.  She still runs distance races, though she says
she is slower these days.  See all the race numbers behind her?

Like everyone else in the family, Mom was originally a teacher.

The whole family looks full of life and energy. I wonder if they serve some kind of power food in their café.

Running still - that's wonderful. I can barely walk and I'm not that old!

Love her smile!

Phew! This is one energetic clan! I know people younger than Mom and Edgard who can barely walk, much less distance races.

She looks like a happy person.

I admire her energy and vitality. I don't plan to be working when I'm 70, let alone 80.
