Thanks for sharing. I have always had a dream that I would be back to running regularly (but not marathon distances!) in retirement, but not sure the joints are going to hold up and not sure I’ll ever get to “retirement”.
My daughter ran in the KC underground race on Sunday, was sort of stunned to see the results, that she beat a 77 year old runner by just a couple seconds.

A 101-year-old Sikh regarded as the world's oldest marathon runner will quit after one final run at next month's Hong Kong race
Its even odds that the air pollution in HK will kill him first.

Thats just amazing...heck I can barely do a 5k at 60.
On the one hand you respect that...but there’s a piece somewhere that says “showoff...”

I can’t wait for the 90-something marathoner to claim Singh was juicing!
"But I will keep running for at least four hours daily after that," Singh, who lives in Ilford, England, told the Times of India newspaper during a visit to his home state of Punjab.
Four hours of running by a 101 year old should get him to the end of his driveway & back. :)

In 1971 a man over the age of 100 was teaching people how to run the Honolulu Marathon. I don’t know when he died, but he was well over 101 when I last heard about him. He had been a maitre d at a San Francisco hotel till he was 99 or 100.
