70 Year Old Granny runs 3:27 marathon!

70 year old Jeannie Rice set a new world record for her age when she completed the recent Chicago marathon in a time of 3h 27m 50s!

The grandmother, from Ohio, broke the previous record for the 70+ women’s category which was 3h 35m 29s. Chicago was also her 116th marathon.

When asked about her training in a post race interview, she said ..."I really do not enjoy treadmills. The only hard thing about training is keeping going through the cold weather, the wind and the rain does definitely make it tougher. I run every day and make sure to get enough sleep and a good diet. Age is just a number. If you’re physically capable you should just keep running – there’s really nothing stopping you."
