At yesterday's Toronto Waterfront Marathon, there was an impressive daily double of performances by athletes who are redefining what age means.
The always amazing Ed Whitlock broke his own world record with a 3:15:54 marathon. I've written about Mr. Whitlock before, and he just keeps getting more impressive.
Getting even more attention yesterday was the only man in the field who could call Whitlock "sonny", Fauja Singh, who became the first 100-year old to complete a marathon. Singh clocked 8:11:05 in his record breaking effort.
And BTW ladies, in case you're looking for a role model, don't forget the indefatigable Ginette Bedard.
The next time I'm tempted to complain that I'm getting old and creaky, I'll think about these two, then shut up and run.
