Here is a 92 years young woman who is an inspiration ...
HONOLULU -- Gladys Burrill wasn't thinking about breaking a world record when she power-walked and jogged through the Honolulu Marathon at age 92.
But Burrill, a part-time Hawaii resident nicknamed the "Gladyator," learned soon after finishing the Dec. 12 race with a time of nine hours and 53 minutes that she likely qualified for the recognition.
Guinness World Records confirmed Burrill's accomplishment Saturday, and the Hawaii House of Representatives honored her with a certificate and lei during a ceremony Monday.
Her advice for others wanting to live a long and healthy lifestyle?
"Just get out there and walk or run," she said Monday. "I like walking because you can stop and smell the roses, but it's a rarity that I stop."
Burrill had been a multi-engine aircraft pilot, mountain climber, desert hiker and horseback rider before she ran her first marathon in 2004 at the age of 86.
