Go Harriet

On the Monday’s World’s News Tonight, the Person of the Week was Harriette. Harriette Thompson started running at the age of 76 years old. She completed her 16th marathon, Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon on Sunday May 31st. She is 2-time cancer survivor trained for marathon despite the recent loss of her husband. She completed the marathon in 7 hours 7 minutes 42 seconds. Does age matter? No it doesn’t. You can start training for anything at any age. It is what you want to do and don’t let anyone say you cannot. If they do, just be more determine and prove them wrong.
