Even at 100-Years young, Ida Keeling of Philadelphia makes time to stay active, stay healthy, and break records along the way. During the 122nd Penn Relays this past Saturday, Keeling set a new world record for the fastest time in a 100-meter dash for competitors 100+ at an impressive 1-minute and 17-seconds. What’s even more remarkable? She followed up her incredible performance with a quick set of push-ups for the crowd!
Ida is clearly a glowing representation of long-term health, but she also stands as a testament to preparation in all facets of life. Keeling’s daughter & trainer, Shelley Keeling, stood by her mother’s side and raised her hand at the finish line but attributes her mom’s praiseworthy feat to all the exercise she does on a regular basis like squats, calisthenics, and bike riding. Life in a lot of ways is full of race competitions. We all stand on our marks. We share a common goal of making it to the finish line. The question isn’t will you be first place, though. It’s, will you be in even better shape for the next track meet?

WARNING: Dopeness Ahead. Check out this cool animation by Jordan Coelho featuring music by Adrien Marrec that started out as an experiment with simple shapes. It’s fun to try keeping track of which shape comes from what.
Earlier this week, the music world was shocked to the core by yet another idol’s passing. We’ll never forget the artistic royalty that is, was, and will forever be formerly known as Prince Rogers Nelson. This Sample Saturday, we’re paying our respects to the legendary musician. Listen with us to:
Kanye West’s “Big Brother
Could today get any sadder? Today, we lost royalty manifested. The iconic musician Prince was pronounced dead at the age of 57 this afternoon and all we’ve got to remember him by is the music not of this world and the legends not even conceivable by imagination. We’re thankful to have had Charlie Murphy and Dave Chappelle to retell one of his most memorable fables.
