80-year-old woman an inspiration on race weekend

Two-and-a-half hours is a pretty decent time for the half marathon. It's even more impressive if you're 80 years old. That's the case for Vi Turner. She has travelled from Thunder Bay to run the half in Ottawa Race Weekend. And other members of the family are signed up, too.
It's a tradition the Turners have observed since Vi's husband, Alan, was killed in a bus accident nine years ago. She spoke to Robyn on Friday.
