Ida Keeling, 100, breaks 100m world record
'Get up and do things...even if you don't feel like it'
So, it's Monday...again.
For many of us, the weekend is over and it's back to reality. But to help us all get back in the swing of things, we need a little #MotivationMonday.
The remarkable story of Ida Keeling may just be what the doctor ordered.
The 100-year-old's participation in the Penn Relays on April 30 is pretty inspiring stuff by itself, but add that to the fact that she set the world record for the fastest 100m by a woman in the 100-years-or-older category.

If you're having trouble getting started today, just remember that after Keeling set a world record in one minute, 17.33 seconds, she went the extra mile:
