He's cool. I doubt that he's actually over 100, but he's really really old and kudos to him for his running.
101 Years old, and running a MARATHON! Good lord!
I like that they gave him number "0001". that is cool.
I just hope I can run a race when I am 75... (a 5K version only perhaps though... :-)

I saw this story a couple of weeks ago, but it wasn't until today that I read about why he took up running. What a tragedy about his son.
And I'm always hopeful that a story of a successful senior runner talks about how they've been running for 70 years, but it never seems to be the case. He started at age 89.
