Joe’s 82 and still breaking records

If you’re only as old as you feel, then Joe King is 16 when he goes for a run. Not bad for an 82-year-old. He started running in high school, and liked it so much he hasn’t stopped. King was a teacher for 31 years, and found that running was the best way to relieve job stress. It also gave him time to work through his ideas without distractions. Beyond that, there’s the simple feeling of freedom that running has always given him. King shows no sign of stopping—this year he ran a seven-minute mile to break the world record for runners over 80.
