Motivational Monday with Fauja Singh

Locally residing Fauja Singh is today’s motivational Monday star!

The worlds oldest runner! It almost sounds like a circus attraction. Lots of people would probably still think this is true today… An old man running, surely that can’t be good for anyone’s health!

Well, it is, and very good too.

Name: Fauja Singh
