Default 101 Year Old Man to Run Marathon

And that's not all ...



Quote:
101-year-old Buster Martin is set to compete in the London Marathon on April 13th.
Working plumber Buster Martin ran Sunday’s Roding Valley half marathon in Essex in five hours 13 minutes, and is now focusing on London’s 26-mile event.

On finishing the run, the first words of the ex-member of rock band The Zimmers were: “Where’s my beer?”
Mr Martin, who has 17 children, started work at Pimlico Plumbers in London three years ago because he was bored.

I got a message to say that video is no longer available! But I think I saw it a few weeks ago.
Zimmers refers to the walking frames. We call them Zimmer frames here.

Youtube didn't help, either. It's down for site maintenace.
