Yes, it’s been a couple of days, but we felt compelled to share:
At 100 years old, Ida Keeling set a new world record for the 100-meter dash on Saturday at Penn Relays in Philadelphia.
She completed the race against competitors 80 and up in 1 minute and 17.33 seconds — the fastest time recorded for a centenarian. (For comparison’s sake, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt holds the 100-meter world record of 9.58 seconds.)

In case you weren’t already feeling inadequate enough, here’s the advice Keeling offered after her event, speaking with NBC’s Carolyn Manno: “Eat for nutrition, not for taste. And exercise at least once a day.”
Oh, also: “Love yourself.”
