Japan-born American Marathon Runner Toshiko Kishimoto Dies

Here's an interesting story, pointed my way by Vinny. It's essentially an obituary for a Japanese woman who seemed to have a remarkable life simply because she enjoyed running away... no... just running...

Toshiko d’Elia nee Kishimoto was a child survivor of WWII who cam,e to the U.S., and only at the age of 44 did she take up the sport of long-distance running.

It sounds boring... but her story isn't. Trust me on that.
