Most folks who live to be 100 are just happy to still be here, butJulia Hawkinsis still out there running and competing in races at 103. She’s still living up to her nickname - the “Hurricane” - and just won gold medals in both the 50-meter dash and the 100-meter dash in the women’s 100-plus division at the 2019 Senior Games.
Hawkins is the oldest woman to compete on an American track, according to theNational Senior Games Association. And while she finished slightly slower this year than she has in the past, the mother of four, grandmother of three, and great-grandmother of three is still impressive. When it comes to planning for her next race, Hawkins says, “You never know. When you’re 103, every day is a miracle.”
