In her 60s and 70s, Wanda Groves set statewide running records for her age group, 11 of which still stand.
When she turned 80, she and her friends rode 80 miles on their bikes to mark the occasion.
At 89, the retired physical education and music teacher continued to be active, riding 18-plus miles every other week with a local cycling group.
“But it got to where my knees were hurting all the time,” says Groves, who recently celebrated her 90th birthday. “I couldn’t even mow my own lawn.”
