Nebraska Charity Run Features 97-Year-Old Athlete

NPR's Robert Siegel and NPR's Michele Norris tell the story of 97-year-old Roger Little, who ran in Omaha, Nebraska's 23rd annual Corporate Cup 10-kilometer Run Sunday. Little finished at the back of the field of some 6,300 runners in the charity event. One hundred and fifty people took longer than him to complete the 6.2-mile course — and all of them were younger.
