Wow! Such an amazing and inspiring story! I guess I have no excuse not to go running now! 

99-year-old Ida Keeling came In last place during the 100-meter race at the Gay Games BUT finished at 59.8 seconds! “It’s believed that no other woman has ever recorded a faster time for her age group!” 

After losing her husband at the age of 42 as well as two sons, she got into running at the age of 67! Yes 67!!! That’s amazing! “She has no plans of slowing down either. Her goal now is to outlive her grandmother, who lived to 104!”
