An 81-year-old Holocaust survivor is considering running another marathon, which would be his 12th.
Nat Shaffir, a docent at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, runs 6 miles six days a week, rain or shine, and he didn’t start running until he was 65 years old.
This fall, he completed his eighth Marine Corps Marathon and he’s already thinking about his next one. He’s also run three other marathons.
Running gives him the chance to think, to contemplate and remember, even back to the fall of 1942.
