A local woman is celebrating her 100th birthday, with a big party. People at Martha Jefferson's Health and Wellness Gym are throwing Grace O'Brien a big celebration.

Folks at the gym say you wouldn't believe she's 100-years-old. That's because she exercises regularly at the gym and can even walk a full mile around the track.

"People tell me I'm an inspiration, I'm blessed, I'm a blessing and I don't think of myself like that. I just think I'm ordinary," said Grace O'Brien, Celebrating 100th Birthday.

O'Brien says the best party about turning 100 is still being alive.
