"The Long-Distance Runner

Ernie Andrus, 89

The accomplished long-distance and relay-runner first laced up shoes when he retired at 64. Inspired by the Olympians coming to his area, Ernie Andrus ran his first 10K with the torchbearers for the Los Angeles Olympics. Since then, hes completed countless 5K and 10K road races and two half-marathons, the first in 2011.

Now 89, Ernie recently took part in a 200-mile, overnight race, and plans to run a marathon by the time he turns 100.

His stay-fit tip: "Get your heart pumping early in the morning, and stay active! I think of running as an adventure, so I'm always motivated to see whats out there.""
