sponsored by SmartyPants Vitamins and NSGA

SmartyPants Vitamins believes that "growing up is up to you" and wanted to hear how active senior athletes view aging in their own words. The 2018 “Aging With a New Attitude” contest asked National Senior Games athletes to tell us in 100 words or less how they are "aging with a new attitude." Five winning entries (shown below) received a SmartyPants prize package. Congratulations to them, and to all athletes who shared their positive aging attitudes!
