100-Year-Old Runner Sets Record

Ida Keeling is 100 years old. And despite reaching the triple-digits, she makes sure to stay active. This week, all her hard work paid off in the form of a world record.

Taking part in a 100-meter dash at the Penn Relays, Keeling finished in a minute and 17 seconds, which is now the world record for people 100 years old and over.

After crossing the finish line, Ida was greeted with a big hug from her daughter Shelley.

"Exercise is one of the meanest medications you could ever have. I'm still getting up, I don't want nobody to drag me down .... your strength is in you. If you've got a will, you'll find a way."

Way to go, Ida! Although she's 22 years older, this definitely reminded us of Shirley Webb motivating us by her weightlifting.
