The Woman Who Goes the Distance

You don’t find too many old people who are willing to get on a skateboard. My grandmother is one of those rare people, and surprisingly, she’s very good at it. She can do all kinds of tricks and even grind on rails. She says that she wants to live life to the fullest, but it seems a little crazy to me. Once when she was doing a trick, she hurt her back and had to search through Sacramento chiropractors for a place to get treatment.

When the chiropractor heard how my grandmother injured her back, he was amazed that someone her age could do tricks on a skateboard. My grandmother treats it as if it’s something completely normal that all elderly people do.
