I have heard that doctors say that before you start any serious exercise schedule and if you are over 30, you should get a complete medical checkup. Well, thats allright. But I want to know what tests or precautions they recommend for someone who plans to take up a career in running at the age of 81!
Surprised! Yes, this is what Fauja Singh did. His profile:
- Profession before age 81: Farmer in Punjab India.
- Profession after age 81: Running!
- Presently: at age 94, he is still running and has ran several marathons in the UK, US, and Canada.
- Saturday, 2 July 2005 he will attempt running several lengths of track to make various records.
