A 94-year-old Woman Just Finished a Half Marathon


94-year-old Harriett Thompson just became the oldest person to complete a half marathon!

AND she did it while rocking red lipstick. She ran in the Rock N’ Roll San Diego half-marathon, making her the oldest person to run one.

This little lady is also a two-time cancer survivor and just two years ago, back when she was 92, she ran a full marathon. Thompson didn’t even start running until she was 76, which makes it all even more impressive.

“I always say, I feel fine unless you want the details,” she jokes about her health. “I know I have limitations now I didn’t have before. At age 94, I feel like I did when I was 16, but I can’t move as fast. Overall, I feel fine.”

What an inspiration!
