100-year-old Fauja Singh became the oldest person to complete a full-distance marathon when he finished a race in Toronto.

INSPIRE: 100-year-old Fauja Singh yesterday made a Guinness World Record for being the oldest person to complete a 42 km marathon! Fondly called "The Turbaned Tornado", Singh ran his first marathon at the age of 89 and has run 8 marathons since. It's never too late to run after your dreams!

This totally describes my running career! While I do love to run, I may not be the fastest one in the group. But hey, at least I am getting out and moving my feet right?!
