NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A 95-year-old Brooklyn woman ran her way into the history books, breaking a world speed record.

Ida Keeling, in a race on Manhattan last week, didn’t beat her competitors who were decades her junior. Instead, she marked the fastest time for someone her age: 60 meters in less than 30 seconds.

Keeling began running at age 67 following the deaths of both her sons. “After it was all over I felt so uplifted and relieved. I said ‘This is what I need’.”

The 83-pound, 4’6″ Ida trains daily in the hallways of her apartment complex, lifting weights and riding a bike.

She’s been winning medals all over the world and said she has no plans of letting up.

Ida said she would like to live to be 108.
