105-Year-Old Sprinter Ida Keeling: “I’m Running From Old Age”

Ida Keeling is unstoppable. Period. Even now, as she turns 105, I don’t even think the great, great, great grandmother could stop if she wanted to. (source: blackdoctor.org)

BlackDoctory.org reports that in 2011, at 95 years old, Keeling set the world record in her age group for running 60 meters at 29.86 seconds. In 2014 at 99 set the world record for the 100-meter dash at 59.80 seconds. Then in 2016, just before her 101st birthday, she set the world record for the number of push-ups in her age bracket and broke her own world record in the 100-meter dash. She also became another world record sprinter at the age of 103!

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
