“Super senior” Olga Kotelko held over 23 world records in track and field, 17 of them in the 90-95 age categories. By her ninth decade, she'd decided to embrace aging gracefully by focusing less on the number and more on how she aged. The memoir, Olga: The O.K. Way to a Healthy, Happy Life (Friesen Press $19.99) is Kotelko’s way of sharing her positive attitude and determination while encouraging others to enjoy a healthy lifestyle that benefits body, mind and spirit. She includes tips, techniques and explanations on how to keep fit, with a joke at the end of each chapter for a quick spirit boost of laughter.
