Dora - My Daily Inspiration

This is my friend Dora from the gym. We all call her "La Señora". Dora is over 75 and going strong. She is always the first one at the gym at 5:45 a.m. She works out everyday from 5:45 until 9 a.m. She takes a spinning class, lifts weights and then another class of either aerobics, spinning or body bar. I look up to her because she is a great example of what we should all be. She is kind, does things for everyone from birthday parties, to organizing the Christmas gift donation for the instructors, and our yearly Christmas party where she brings pan dulce, tamales, and leche con cafe. She is also very active in her senior citizen group, INAPAM (Instituto Nacional de las Personas Adultas Mayores). They have activities, field trips, vacations all sponsored by the government and most if not all of the activities are free or at a very low cost. She has taken trips with the group to Zacatecas, Guadalajara and Tampico just to name a few. Unfortunately, a lot of people aren't interested in the group or don't know about it.
Thanks Dora!
