The story of 2011 that had the most impact on me is the story I covered on Charlotte Hoecker, the 82-year-old ice skater. 

Charlotte is quite the inspiration.  As some people age, they allow their bodies to wither away.  Not Charlotte.  At 82 years old she's sharp not only on her feet but in mind as well. 

I can only hope that when I'm 82 I'll be as active as Charlotte. Actually, after seeing what she can do, it's now my new goal.  I have no doubt in my mind that on my 82nd birthday, I'll think of Charlotte and be grateful that I was able to bring her story to the viewers.  Her story inspired me to stay active as long as I can!
