He said he still has to run for more two or three years  period because this is the only activity he chose to do from his early 90s after seeing that many of his friends he used to play board games with passed away. This is really amazing to find such an old man sprinting like a young man, really Japanese are very strong people in the world, its not easy to find this else where in the world, i have only seen it in Japan.

Many old people of his age just cant do anything like running, all they do is to sit the whole day and keep crying of backache and so on, but i really salute the Japanese.
