While sitting in traffic yesterday I heard about a 91 year old woman who completed the San Diego marathon. I couldn’t believe it. She completed the marathon in 7 hours! 7 hours! It took me 5 hours and 26 minutes. I looked her up when I got to work and found out she ran her first marathon at the age of 76. How amazing! Thompson also became the second-oldest marathon finisher in U.S. history — the oldest was 92 years old — Competitor.com reported. (source: USA Today)
I don’t know if I will ever run another marathon, but it truly was an amazing experience. Tomorrow the lottery for the Houston Marathon and half marathon opens. I’m going to sign up for the half marathon and cross my fingers. I’ve heard it’s harder to get into the half than the full. I ran the half in 2009 and just like the full it was a great experience. Crossing fingers!!!!
Today I got a quick 30 minute weights work out in. Love Jillian!
