Video: Watch an 85 Year Old Run a Trail Marathon

Ready for your daily dose of inspiration? I present to you mountaineer and outdoor athlete Ramón Blanco, who has climbed all over the world and taken part in some of the biggest adventure races, including the original Eco-Challenge. In this clip, Ramón takes on a 42 km (26 mile) trail marathon, which in and of itself is an impressive feat. But when you consider the fact that he is now 85 years old, the story gains an entirely new dimension. Hopefully we’ll all be having this much fun and adventure when we’re 85. Inspiring indeed!
