An Inspiration for Us All. . .
100-year-old Faujah Sing set a world record on Sunday for being the oldest person to complete a marathon. He completed the 26.2 mile Toronto Waterfront Marathon in just over eight hours. This is not his first marathon. In 2003 Sing set the record for those in their nineties while running in the same event. He attributes his successes to exercise, a healthy diet consisting of tea and curries, and steering clear of alcohol and nicotine. Singh’s victory proves that age doesn’t matter, saying that, “The first thing is to get rid of this notion that you’re old.”
