91 Year Old Decides to Run and Sets Record

Grace didn't have a lifetime of track and field experience. She lived a life of real movement, called functional exercise, raising 11 children and doing chores. She decided to run a race. One month later, she ran the race and broke a world record.

A video should appear below of Grace Foster. Click the small, right-pointing arrow at bottom-left of the video box to watch her straight body positioning, the race, and her happy family.

Grace exercises daily, stretches, eats healthful food. Other racing record holders over age 90 will be featured in future articles.

Get moving, stay moving, be happy. It keeps you vital, more with each year.
