Charlotte Guttenberg is a 67-year-old woman living in Melbourne, Florida and who works as a writer, a life coach and a personal trainer. But Guttenberg is no ordinary senior; in fact, her rather unusual passion has even seen her break a world record.
And that passion was one that had been in her for decades. Still, it took one life-changing event to spur her on to pursue it: the sad death of her husband in 2001. Even then it wasn’t until five years later, in 2006, that Guttenberg realized it was time to grab her life by the horns. And as a result, she was going to do something she’d been meaning to do for a long time.
Guttenberg’s late husband had been quite traditional. He had certain ideas of what it meant to be “a lady,” with strong opinions on what she should and shouldn’t do, especially with regard to her looks.
