She is 90 years old, and she bikes more than you.

Elena Galvez is a 90-year-old Chilean abuelita who’s melting hearts all over the world with her determination. Galvez has been making a living for herself for the last 43 years by selling her chickens’ eggs around her town of Rengo, Chile. She bikes 18 miles a day to get to town to sell her eggs. Galvez, who has been using the same bike since she first started selling eggs, considers her bike her best friend and companion.

“It’s my companion, my friend,” Galvez told Reuters. “I am nothing without her.”

We should all try to be as active and determined as this viejita.
