100 Year Old Crosses the Finish Line

My last blog post was about a 100 year old runner who was entering the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. I found the story very inspirational. He was attempting to break a slew of records, but most importantly set the world record for finishing a marathon at his age.

Guess what?

Fauja Singh, the runner in question, did manage to finish in a time of eight hours and 25 minutes. This is absolutely remarkable. 22,000 runners participated, and while Mr. Singh was the last one to cross the finish line, he did cross it under his own steam.

Congratulations to Mr. Singh and to everybody who helped to prepare this amazing man for this event.

Last week one of my listings sold. This particular property had been listed since the fall and I was starting to despair that it would ever sell at the price it was listed. There were lots of showings at this house, and a lot of other agents had… more
