Like they say, it’s never too late. Jonathan Mendes 93, runs marathons in New York City. He started running at 46, after quitting smoking two packs a day. He stands 5’6″, and weighs 160 lbs. He says you must have goals in life, and it’s no disgrace to fail, only not to try.

Soon after he started jogging with a neighbor, and then took to running longer distances as he got stronger.
