To help keep your positive mindset that there still is goodness in this world and the majority of people are good, I'm going to share stories every so often of positivity.

This week, I'm sharing the story of Edith Murray-Traina. At the age of 98 and 94 days, she set a Guinness World Record for the oldest competitive female powerlifter. She set the record deadlifting 150 pounds that day in 2019.

The pandemic essentially shut down her training, but now she is back and ready to go. She has a meet in November and wants to set a new record at the age of 100.

She had never worked out with weights ever until the age of 91. A friend of hers asked her to go to the gym with her because she didn't want to workout alone that day.

Turns out Edith was a natural at lifting weights. She was hooked and began competing with the gym's lifting team. She has won numerous awards and trophies.

She said every time she lifted a weight, people would applaud. She got to liking that and kept lifting.

It goes to show that it doesn't matter what age you are, you can start exercising and positive things will happen.

And yes, she is a great-great-grandmother. I'll be half her age and hoping my body still holds out to lift 150 pounds.

Enjoy the weekend.
