Eileen Noble, age 84, ran the London Marathon on Wednesday with a time of 6 hours, 28 minutes and 7 seconds.
She was the oldest marathon runner and everyone was praising her, because that many younger runners were far behind her.
Eileen walked through the finish line with a smile.
She also participated in the marathon last year. She has been running since her 50s and has participated in 18 marathons so far.
Congratulations to Eileen Noble! 👏👏

“I don’t think of myself as the oldest participant, I am the same as other participants,” said Eileen Noble ahead of the race.
She has been running four times a week for more than three decades and said it makes her happy.
When you are stressed or anxious, you run and feel better. You will return home, and you’ll be happy. “I can’t imagine my life without running”, she said.
for all of us! When you are stressed or anxious, you run and feel better
