Because Market is proud to be sponsoring six incredible women at this year's National Senior Athletic Games organized by the National Senior Games Association (NSGA). These extraordinary women are changing the narrative on what's possible for athletes over 60. Pushing back against stereotypes of the limits aging bodies face, these women take back their autonomy, health, and happiness as they Live Life Fully.
I played basketball from fourth grade through eighth grade, but my school after that didn’t have a basketball team for girls. So I joined a track and field team during high school and played some intramurals during college, but there was a long period of time when I was focused on my career as a certified public accountant. There just wasn't as big of a focus at that time during my life on activity. If I had stayed active through my 30s and into my 50s, it would have made getting back into basketball and track and field a lot easier.
So the biggest challenge, I think, is first thinking of myself as an athlete—as a senior athlete—and rephrasing my mindset. But also just the effort to be in shape and maintain stamina and endurance on that court. It's one of my main focuses at this time to overcome those challenges.

The proudest moments have been, of course, earning medals during the state Senior Games. And that's in both track events as well as basketball. My proudest right now is helping other senior women find an opportunity to play basketball, join the Senior Games, and do different events. Building awareness of what we're trying to do and getting new players out on the court has been a lot of fun.
