After pushing their bodies for most of their lives, they are having to accept aches and pains, injuries, surgeries, joint replacements, and loss of muscle power. These stories are about how they are not giving up easily, and how they are keeping their optimistic attitudes and abilities to relish the almost impossibly hard work it takes to stay fit. This is a fascinating mix of effort, strategy, training schedules, diets, and philosophies these aging athletes bring to readjust and redesign their endeavors - whatever it takes!
