A Runnin' Mama

How fast can you run a 100-meter dash? Julia "Hurricane" Hawkins set a World Record in Baton Rouge. It was the USA Track and Field Outdoors Masters Championships. Keyword there....Masters. Hurricane Hawkins is 101 years old. She ran a blazing 40.12 seconds trashing the old record of 46.

It's a wondrous sight...a great grandmother who says she competes because it makes her kids (how old are they?), her grandkids and great-grandkids proud of her.

Hurricanes' personal record is 39.62 for the 100-meter. Maybe was off her speed a bit in Baton Rouge. She says she had to give up her nap to make the race appearance.
