In life, some people choose to grow bolder while others grow older.
This week I read the amazing story of Yoshihisa Hosaka, the 60 year-old Japanese runner turned back the years with a run of sparkling brilliance. Finishing 89th overall in 2:36:30, at the Beppu-Oita Mainichi Marathon on Feb. 1, 2009. Now that is something that makes us forget the global credit crunch! I have known Japan has good senior marathon runners but I didn’t imagine they can be this good.
And this is a photo of Yoshihisa at the finishline
