Inspirational Runner

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Margaret (a legend in our parts emoticon) is 89 and is a frequent participant in our local road races. Here she is coming in at yesterday's Greenway 5k.

She took first in the Female 70-100 category and I loved her excitement as she waited to see if she had won. She is definitely an inspiration for all of us who say, "I could never do that because I'm too ___ (fill in the blank)"

    She is totally amazing. We have an 85 year old woman who still runs agility courses with her dog. Thanks for posting about such an inspiration!
