Meet This Inspiring 94 Year Old Track Star!

This last Sunday San Diego hosted the 20th annual “Rock and Roll” marathon.  One special runner Harriette Thompson gives everyone a run for their money!

Harriettte is a sweet little 94 year old who began running in her mid 70’s!…  She is a two time cancer survivor and she has been coming from her home in South Carolina – since 1999 – to run in San Diego’s marathon.

This year Harriette finished the half marathon, however, two years ago at the young age of 92 she became the oldest person to complete a full marathon!

Her sweet voice reflects her humble attitude.  Each year she shares that she doesn’t run for the record-setting aspect but rather for the fund raising.  Through her running she has raised over $115,000 for the cancer research.

The next time we feel tired or lazy or achy – let’s reflect on this generous spirited lady.  She compares running to life:  “There were some nice stretches and there were some big hill… The whole experience was enjoyable, except for the potholes.”   Yep – just like life*

Live Inspired,

Mary
