Thanks to Lola in Newberg
She kept on running until she completed her 1,000th 5K last Friday, two months short of her 80th birthday.
Mae hasn’t stopped doing these continuous 5K’s and says that good habits are as hard to break as bad habits.
She often runs and walks with her friends who now say that going out for a walk doesn’t even feel like a walk anymore unless it’s 5K.
Mae’s daughter says she’s inspired and wants to be just like her mom when she reaches her golden years.
