Don't Quit! March 17, 2021 11:56

Dottie Gray runs on the track at Snow Canyon High School during Huntsman World Senior Games competition Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015.

Dottie Gray was 54 when she pursued her first race, a two-mile run close to her home in St. Louis. She went straight home after the race, yet needed to turn right around when a companion called and said she needed to get her prize—she was the quickest sprinter in her age gathering.

Presently 96, Gray isn't quitting at any point in the near future. She walks several miles most days, and contends in around three 5Ks consistently. She thanks walking for keeping her physically sound. "It's acceptable exercise. What's more, it's not difficult to do," she tells NSGA. "You can just put on your shoes and go out the entryway."
