Staff Reviews


"Inspired by the oldest person to ever run a marathon, Dr. Simran Jeet Singh began running himself and quickly fell in love with the sport. He eventually met his hero, the wonderful and inspiring Fauja Singh, who ran his first marathon at 89 years old-- and at 109, is still alive and running! Dr. Singh knew he had to share his story! From the time he was a young boy who couldn't walk, to his incredible record-breaking marathons, Fauja's tale of resilience, determination, and light will inspire readers of all ages! I personally learned so much from Fauja Singh-- to be kind, persevere, take care of your mind, body and spirit-- and don't let anybody tell you what you can't do. A remarkable story that needs to be widely shared and celebrated."

Description


Fauja Singh was born determined. He was also born with legs that wouldn't allow him to play cricket with his friends or carry him to school miles from his village in Punjab. But that didn't stop him. Working on his family's farm, Fauja grew stronger to meet his own full potential. He never stopped striving. At the age of 81, after a lifetime of making his body, mind, and heart stronger, Fauja decided to run his first marathon. He went on to break records all around the world and became the first person over 100 to complete the grueling long-distance race. This exuberant true story of Fauja Singh reminds us that it's both where we start and how we finish that makes our journey unforgettable.
