This guy is a local icon in the town where I used to live a few years back.
He was a maths teacher at a local high school, and every morning, (I’m not kidding when I say everyday) he would run 16km (just under 10 miles!) from his house to the school where he taught.
Even though he retired from teaching a few years back, he has still been running 16km’s, everyday, and just running to the gym instead
To top of that sheer awesomeness, he waves to literally every car that passes him, and high fives anyone he jogs past, with the biggest smile on his face you could ever imagine.
He’s approaching 70 years of age, and he’s still fit and healthy as he was nearly 20 years ago.
If this isn’t a reason to run, I don’t know what is!
