Ida Keeling is 99 years old, but that hasn't kept her from continuing to run. 

In fact, Keeling was able to set a world record by running  a 100-meter race at the University of Akron in 59.8 seconds, which is the fastest by any woman her age.

Watch the video above as Keeling, who turns 100 in May, does something very few could do at her age.
