THE LITTLE OLD LADY FROM PASADENA
Growing up during the Great Depression, did Maurine Kornfeld figure she’d have already climbed the stairway to Heaven by the year 2020?
Like many Americans she retired at age 65. Although she never cared for swimming as a youngster, she joined a Masters Swim group at the YMCA to stay fit. Setting her first record at age 90, she was recently inducted into the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame.
When asked her secret, she replied, eyes twinkling. “If you can’t outswim them, outlive them.”
“Mighty Mo” is my new hero. I want to be her when I grow up.
