This is 100% the story I need today.
It’s a fab, inspiring story any day, but especially on a day like today – a day when I feel grumpy and headache-y because the pollution in Delhi (where I live) is SO bad that:
(a) there is no question of running outdoors and
(b) I have a low grade headache & itchy, scratchy eyes inside my home despite air purifiers working round the clock.
So this story that I’m going to share with you, is exactly what I need to see and hear.
Meet the AMAZING 105 year old runner taking part in the US masters tomorrow.
Julia Hawkins, my shero 🙂 🙂
Ms Hawkins started running when she turned 100! I mean how FAB is that?!
I’ve been following this amazing lady’s career for the past 2 or 3 years, obviously completely in awe of her, and then – guess what? She lost her title a few months ago to a 100 year old whippersnapper.
These are the gals I hope to emulate.
I watched an interview with Ms Hawkins who, talking about her race tomorrow, said she didn’t want to let her children down 🙂
GO GO GO, you amazing women.
And here’s hoping some of their aura will rub off on this grumpy ol’ gal 😛
Actually this ol’ gal will be a WHOLE lot less grumpy when the Delhi pollution eases and she can head out and run off the crazy 😛
