This is an inspirational woman but the book didn't do very much for me.

Inspirational! Motivational! What a sweet writer and an athlete to admire! She really makes you think YOU CAN DO IT! If you email herm she will write you back! Read her book called Senior Fitness. The title is misleading. It is about health and super fitness! WOW!
Ruth is amazingly brimful of positive energy that just seems to bounce out of the pages of this motivating and inspiring book! If you want to start a healthy eating and exercise program, this is a really helpful book. I loved reading about how she lives her life so fully.
