And what is my New Year’s resolution?


At Age 101, She’s A World Champ Runner”, NPR, Goats and Soda, by Chhavi Sachdev, Jan. 1, 2018

“Every day she wakes up at 4 a.m., bathes, washes clothes, makes tea, recites prayers until about 7 a.m. Sometimes she goes to the Gurdwara, the place of worship for Sikhs, other times she prays at home.

And then she goes to the track for an hour of sprinting practice. And she's not just doing it for fun. A competitive runner, Kaur is a world record holder in her age group for several cat-egories and is now training for the Asia Pacific Masters Games in Malaysia next September.”
