Harriette Line Thompson, a cancer survivor and last living sibling in her family, just shattered the world record with the fastest time in a marathon for a woman over 90 years old.

A concert pianist by profession, the 91 year-old turned in a time of 7:07:42 for the Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon.

Harriette has raised over $90,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of the many members in her family who have died from cancer.
