LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 92-year-old woman has become the oldest person to finish a marathon.

Harriette Thompson ran in the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon.

She's already finished the marathon 15 times before.

Thompson says she runs this marathon because it raises money for blood cancer research. She, her husband, and her son have all had cancer.

Thompson finished the marathon in seven hours, 24 minutes and 36 seconds.
