An Amazing Runner and a Great Inspiration

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

This is Harriette Thompson and she just set the record for her age group- over 90- in the marathon in the San Diego Rock and Roll.

It looks like she got her picture taken with, Meb, too!
She ran her first marathon at age 76! There is hope for us all.
