Fauja Singh is Incredible! 
Congratulations, Fauja Singh!
He now holds the Guinness World Record for being the oldest person to finish a full (26.2miles) marathon in Toronto, Canada this past Sunday! 

It took Mr. Singh eight hours to complete this marathon ...WOW! 
I will be happy just to be able to stand for 8 hours when/if I make it to 100! 

What he said was also so incredible: He said that he was overjoyed - and that finishing this marathon was like getting married again! Awwww, how great is that?

Talk about inspirational - this was Mr. Singh's 8th marathon - but get this - his first was at age 89! There is hope for me, yet! Maybe after 50 Halves in every state - I will go on to 50 full marathons in every state! ... AMEN!

The best part - he has more goals: He hopes he can participate in the torch relay for the 2012 London Games!

Well,  Mr. Fauja Singh, I hope I get to see you carry that torch! 
You are an amazing person and an inspirational role model for runners of all ages!
Keep up the great work and
