If this doesn’t motivate you to get up and moving, nothing will. A 91-year-old woman completed a full marathon over the weekend. She even set two records in the process.

Harriette Thompson ran her first marathon at age 76. At age 91, she set a U.S. record on Sunday for the fastest finish in her 90-and-over age group. Her time for the 26.2-mile Rock’n'Roll San Diego Marathon was seven hours, seven minutes and 42 seconds, according to race organizer Dan Cruz.

Thompson also became the second oldest person to complete a U.S. marathon and the oldest to finish the San Diego race.

Thompson said she had no plans to stop running.
