Hey isn't it good that we can talk about AVERAGE 101 year olds. We're all living far too long. There'll soon be no space left to run in.richardsimkiss said:Not gonna happen I'm afraid ... he's been training for 8 weeks?? and last week he managed a half marathon in 4hours 30mins? He'll never manage the Marathon... he even says himself he was suprised to finish the half marathon!
Now okay that may sound really harsh to put him down like - don't get me wrong I admire ANYONE who goes out there and runs, but I just don't think he deserves more publicity than someone who has been training exceptionally hard for the event and actually expects to finish! Surely anyone of any age could start FLM?
If he really is 101 - then I have to hand it to him for still being so incredibly active - I don't know anyone any near that age who can bounce around like he was in that video! He certainly doesn't look like your average 101 year old!
