the Coronado Bridge as a backdrop, Harriette Thompson stepped outside
of the Hilton Bayfront hotel Friday morning and began jogging along the
bay. One woman stopped her in front of the million-dollar yachts for an
autograph. Another wanted her to pose for a picture.
“It’s just because I’m so old,” joked Thompson.
year ago this weekend, Thompson, then 91, completed the Suja Rock ’n’
Roll Marathon in 7 hours, 7 minutes, the fastest marathon ever by a
woman 90 or older.
after the feat, sitting in the shade of a tent next to Petco Park,
Thompson promised, “If I’m still (alive), I’ll be back next year.”
