Running heroes, 98 Yrs Old Runner, Rosario Dies in Mexico

I read the following remarkable headline from International Herald Tribune.

“Rosario Iglesias, a world-class runner in the 90 years-and-older category, has died in Mexico City. She was 98.”

According to the newspaper report “The news vendor took up sports at the age of 80, Iglesias collected newspapers from distributors and ran though the streets delivering them to subscribers, covering six to seven miles (nine to 11 kilometers) a day. A customer who was also a runner noticed her rushing about at an age when most people have long retired and suggested she enter a race.”

She did, she won, and her running career took off.

This “I can do it attitude” shows the only barrier in life is our own limitations. Be inspired.
