World’s Oldest Marathon Runner

Fauja Singh, born April 1, 1911, is the world’s oldest marathon runner. This 100-year old marathon runner from India completed classical 42195 km distance on Sunday (10/16/2011) at Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. He finished his route after more than eight hours of fight with himself. Fauja Singh result was better as he expected, his plan was about 9 hours. Most people do not understand what it is 8 hours on marathon route. You have to run a marathon to understand it. Fauja Singh speaks only Panjabi, is vegetarian and lives in Great Britain.

This may be the best inspiration ever to get us off the couch and into some running shoes and is also living proof of why it's never too late to incorporate healthy, plant-based foods into your diet.

Even if you don't plan to break any world records, a plant-based diet is a veritable fountain of youth: Vegetarians and vegans live an average of six to 10 years longer than meat-eaters do.

Singh has replaced  David Beckham as Adidas’s new poster boy and his picture is spread across London on bill boards.
