Couple Celebrates Their 80th Birthdays by Finishing Marathon Hand in Hand

Kay and Joe O'Regan are both 80-years-old and recently completed the Cork City Marathon in Ireland. They promised each other this would be their last race, but after their outstanding finish they've decided not to hang up the running shoes just yet.

Kay has gone on to compete in 113 marathons, and Joe in 29. The two prefer to take part in separate races, but decided to run the Cork City Marathon as a way to their 80th birthdays, as well as their 57th wedding anniversary.
