Making a splash: Senior barefooter, 71, inspires

Making a splash: Senior barefooter, 71, inspires | Barefoot Waterski | Scoop.it
Judy Myers doesn’t consider herself an inspiration to other women. She says she’s just your average, everyday barefoot water skier. That’s right, 71-year-old Judy “Old Lady” Myers water-skis without skis, and she’s pretty darn good at it.  Myers picked up barefooting on a dare when she was 53 and hasn’t looked back.
Paul Stokes's insight:

My friend and amazing woman Judy Myers!  Need inspiration, check this out!
