Christian Duque: Margarita, tell us when & why you first started training? What inspired you?
"To live a healthy lifestyle & to be the best role model for my kids.
2010 I saw a personal trainer getting ready for a show; she said to me that we could compete together. My answer was, "I'm old." She said they had a Masters Division.
I did my first show in June 2011 in Toledo, Ohio. After that, nobody was going to stop me from hitting the stage again. At my second show, I qualified for National level competition, though I'd have to wait 12 months for the chance."
