91-Year-Old Woman Breaks Marathon Record

This race was in 2014. She now has raced again at age 92.   

SAN DIEGO – A 92-year-old cancer survivor rocked her way into the record books Sunday, becoming the oldest woman to finish a marathon.

Harriette Thompson of Charlotte, North Carolina, completed Sunday’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Diego in 7 hours, 24 minutes, 36 seconds. She was mobbed by well-wishers as she crossed the finish line.  Of course she does not think she will race in 2016 but she didn’t think she would race in 2015 and she did.  Good Luck Harriette.  You are an amazing woman.
