The Captain and The Marathon Runner

Vaisakhi, the Sikh New Year or harvest festival was celebrated in Trafalgar Square yesterday. Food, singing and dancing all part of the fun.
I met these two gentlemen, the captain and the marathon runner. The captain told me 92 year old Fauja Singh has run over 20 marathons.
Having searched on google I find he is actually 99 and began running at age 89! He has become the new face of Adidas.
Whatever his age, he is certainly an inspiration.
