97 Year Old Woman Breaks 100 M Record: True Inspiration

I couldn’t help but smile, laugh, and :tear up: while watching this video originally posted by Runblogger. Ida’s spirit is amazing. Can you even imagine being that determined and still chase after your dreams at that age?

My favorite line in the video: “If I could find a way up, they’d have to sit on me”.

    I just had the same emotional experience as you did! LOL! I smiled, laughed and teared up and then sang happy birthday to Ida. Thanks for sharing this!!

    The dancing at the end. Oh, the dancing. I want to befriend this entire family.

    I love that what she was muttering to herself on the track, the “go girl. run, girl,” mantra is the same thing all of us have said during a race at one point. Go, Ida. Run, girl!
