Nonagenarian is outed while running half-marathons

Here's a great story for runners everywhere:  A 90-year-old man was telling his wife he was going to local running races - to stand on the sidelines and watch.

Truth is, he's been hoofing it in the races and was "caught" when neighbors spotted him running in TV coverage of an event!

Wilf Cooper has completed six half-marathons. On one occasion, he made a race despite falling down stairs and dislocating his shoulder and breaking ribs.

But now that's he's been outed to his wife, it looks like his running career may be seeing the final finish line.

I'm checking out this 90-year-old athlete in black and am amazed at his prowess.  It's motivation for all master competitors as we pile on the years.
