If you believe 50 is the new 40, or even perhaps the new 30, then obviously 60 is the new 50/40, and 70 is the new 60/50… LOL! Regardless, you are in for a tremendous Treat! Rita H. Losee, ScD, RN will be sharing Stories, Steps & Strategies for Living Full-Out after Fifty, Sixty, Seventy… from her newly released book, Soaring Seniors! As a 30 year-old married woman with an adorable toddler who was napping, Rita Losee read Helen Keller's words,"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." A bolt of energy strong enough to light up Manhattan shot through her body. On the spot, she decided to live a life of adventure. In the intervening decades, Rita, a proficient rock climber has stood on the summit of 19,350 ft. Mt. Kilimanjaro, completed the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon (12 hours, 45 minutes, 27 seconds), and accomplished a solo-through-hiked the 2175 mile Appalachian Trail. Rita’s professional background includes nursing (her first career), nursing management, professional speaking, and customer service consultant. The toddler was joined by a brother, both are now adults with families. Rita wrote the book to inspire GRANDkids, and their grandparents to create a legacy of soaring for seniors. Although Rita resides in Brunswick, ME during the winter months, during the summers, she lives in a fifth wheel on the water in West Bath where she gardens, swims, walks, runs, and exults in being outdoors. One of her favorite summer activities is working part-time at Monkey C Monkey Do, a rope climbing course where she goes to "play for pay.’ Join Rita Losee, and me on Tuesday, May 28, 10-11 A.M. CT US. Rita and I will be having a conversation about her amazing life’s journey, her passion for living to the fullest, and her book, Soaring Seniors.
