Well, 94-year old Harriette Thompson answered that question this weekend at the San Diego Rock n Roll Half Marathon, becoming the oldest finisher surrounded by her sons and fellow Team in Training team mates.
She’s also the older official Marathon finisher, having finished the 26.2 miles at the 2015 edition of the San Diego Rock n Roll Marathon as well.
Her recovery drink of choice?
Apparently scotch or bourbon….
