  • So awesome!! This woman is a true inpiration. Im 36 and I box and I always grumble about doing my jogging �� now I can no longer make excuses.. hope Im as active when Im in my 90s.. watching this brightens my outlook

  • A life comprised of love, laughter, drive and unspoken, yet, obvious spiritual wellbeing: A winning combination for a life well lived.

  • Old people grew up in a time where everyone ate very little chemical treated and genetically engineered food. This 90 year old is so healthy from so long ago today if she eats something unhealthy she will be able to tolerate it. Lots of young people today are developing alzheimer and loads of other diseases in their 20s. Is it a surprise? heck no…

  • But all of you have to remember is that living in BC Canada is like living in the fountain of youth, I mean compared to the stressful east coast of USA people in Canada and especially BC look on an average 10 years younger than their actual age.

  • Couldn’t the organisers arrange a better reception than this? C’mon, here is a new world record holder, the London Marathon champ, and what kind of reception is this?! Chicago can do better!

  • Slow down and groove to the sweet soft rock sounds of the 70s, 80s, and 90s with the Soft Rock Hits Playlist ⛵��

  • Now listen all! Today i have found out that this song belongs to “foreigner” I listened to ” girl on the moon” then “urgent” and now I am listening to this masterpiece. It is outstanding, gorgeous, marvelous!

  • Oie, tudo bom? Tenho 18 anos e estou procurando uma garota pra fazer meus dias mais felizes e que curta musicas dos anos 80 e que mora em SP, é pedir muito hahaha? Me chama no WhatsApp: 11 947651433

  • what I love about this song is that you can understand the lyrics two different ways: one, more obvious is that he met the woman of his life, whom he wants to learn to love, and another is that the song can also be interpreted religiously, that after a lot of heartache and pain in life he has finally found peace in God and he’s praying to Him to help him learn to love. Both beautiful ways to think about the song

  • I miss the people I loved and cared about…the memories this song brings back…words are not enough to express what I am feeling right now.

  • I was blessed to see them at mountain air 85 in caliveras county California with night ranger. Awesome concert and good times. I miss the 80s. But I still have the great memories.����

  • I gotta take a little time, a little time to think things over

    I better read between the lines, in case I need it when I’m older

    Now this mountain I must climb, feels like the world upon my shoulders

    Through the clouds I see love shine, it keeps me warm as life grows colder

    In my life there’s been heartache and pain

    I don’t know if I can face it again

    Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far, to change this lonely life

    I want to know what love is, I want you to show me

    I want to feel what love is, I know you can show me

    I’m gonna take a little time, a little time to look around me

    I’ve got nowhere left to hide, it looks like love has finally found me

    In my life there’s been heartache and pain

    I don’t know if I can face it again

    Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far, to change this lonely life

    I want to know what love is, I want you to show me

    I want to feel what love is, I know you can show me

    I want to know what love is, I want you to show me

    (And I want to feel) I want to feel what love is

    (And I know) I know you can show me

    Let’s talk about love, I want to know what love is

    The love that you feel inside, I want you to show me

    And I’m feeling so much love, I want to feel what love is

    No, you just can’t hide, I know you can show me

    I want to know what love is (let’s talk about love), I know you can show me

    I want to feel it too, I want to feel what love is

    I want to feel it too, and I know and I know, I know you can show me

    Show me love is real, yeah, I want to know what love is


  • This is really a nice song….I used to hear this song over the radio. Nice and soothing to the ears. This one is really an all-time favorite.

  • É por causa desse coral lindo que eu amo ouvir essa música, a letra é bonita mas já vi várias interpretações com cantorias tão ordinárias quanto do Forigner.
    Minha opinião.

  • As vezes você precisa cair mais baixo do que nunca caiu antes, para se levantar mais alto do que nunca se levantou antes.

    Eu li essa frase algumas horas atrás e isso me fez repensar sobre a minha vida e minhas escolhas. O que eu estou fazendo da minha vida?

    Será que eu estou me sabotando?
    Será qual final eu terei?

  • Daiana,cade você? nos conhecemos em 1984 na escola “Aldeia do Curumins” na cidade de Manaus,lembra? eu gostaria de saber como você está nos dias de hoje!!! Essa música me lembra muito você e da escola também naquela época.

  • Estou com depressão só penso em morrer,quando ouço essas músicas fico ainda mais deprimida,por lembrar da minha infância época que eu era feliz��

  • Bela musica de romançe os meus parabens abraço amigo os mais novos ja nao ligao a estdas musicas so os mais vellos ate ao ano 1979 rosa portugal alemanha ������������������������❤❤❤❤❤❤

  • Lou gramm one fantastic singer great song and voice I am a music junkie love love beauful 70/80 /90 classic rock songs I am 62 years old give me a radio over a tv any day

  • pending ratification? I’ve never heard them say that before. Congratulations Brigid. First to break the 2 1/4 barrier. It was great that Paula was there to see it. Might have to start speaking about the Kipchoge effect. The 2 hour and the 2 1/4 hour barrier both broken on the same weekend.

  • Fabulous performance by Kosgei. I was wondering if anyone would ever break Radcliffe’s record. Keitany has been a great marathon runner and she never came close.


  • This Lawrence Cherono go to the bonus for to win Marathon Majors, he won Bostonm now Chicago, sure he will run London (Kipchoge and Bekele go to Olimpic Games).Legese is the other runner to compete for this bonus.

  • Mo is a really really good runner. You know he has the speed/endurance/stamina cause of the fact that he has a background of track.
    Just had a bad day

  • People living on bread, every day running, at an altitude, having nothing else but running in Kenya compared with first world people trying there best. I wonder who would win?

  • Some people shd be just advised to stop commenting while in the toilet, if it’s a white who won,nobody would say “I think it ain’t drug driven..” bla bla buh jst coz it’s our very own kosgei Brigid,you r yapping n commenting negatively, chaaaaaayyyyyeee?! Just appreciate talent.be it white or dark from whichever corner one comes from,appreciate talent,these athletes put in alot of efforts so we can watch them represent us. #love you all,congz to east africa

  • Kipchoge’s time is NOT a world record, you dumb asses in the comment section. If she had the perks that he was given she would’ve run even FASTER you dumb asses. She has a NEW World Rercords, Kipchoge still has his OLD world record.

  • paula was no happy! honestly i am so glad her record is gone after all the silly remarks she was making when she was a commentator about the kenyan athletes when she was afraid they’d brake her record in the marathon..bet she didn’t see this coming!

  • See how ashamed she is at the end, looking all worried that she’s gone too fast and questions will be asked. Props to her internal organs for being able to take the amount of beetroot juice she’s clearly taken

  • I think Paula was gracious and wanted Betsy to get all the limelight and media exposure. Yes, give Betsy time to absorb the highlight, give her breathing room and respect for her world best.

  • Chicago marathon is a pathetic marathon, the director is pushing her all over, there is no clear shortest distance to run, poor organisation&monies, I wonder why its called one of the greats, thats why we Kenyans love the london&the Berlin marathons

  • Ooooo….god….��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������

  • The worst form by any runner belongs to Paula Radcliffe of the UK. She always ran with a limp and tilted downed head to the left. Glad her course record is gone with thé wind.

  • I watched Brigid Kosgei run by at around Mile 19 in Pilsen and just knew she had to be on pace to best Paul’s Radcliffe’s record. Such an amazing performance!

  • She is an amazing person it’s so hard to believe she is 90 yrs old she doesn’t look nearly that old. I would die if I even tried to run a block much less a marathon

  • “…..Her agent, Federico Rosa, has had a worrying number of banned athletes. They include Asbel Kiprop, the former world 1500m champion, Jemima Sumgong, the 2016 London marathon and Olympic champion, and Rita Jeptoo, who won this race in 2013.”

  • Race Directors need to start showing respect to marathon winners by giving them time to recover immediately after finishing and not to start pulling and shoving them around for photographs and interviews awful to see the way the female winner wasnt allowed time to recover before being used by the Race Director somebody needs to talk to that guy

  • Winning with a time of 2hrs 5min, when Kipchoge was over a mile in front, with his incredible record.
    He would have had time to put on his slippers and make a cup of tea.
    How then do we expect athletes to replicate Eluids amazing achievement, when their winning the bif city marathons with times as slow as 2-05

  • Man, how many marathon runners find themselves in multiple sprints in the last 100 meters of marathons to win it all? Two for Cherono this year, has anyone else done that?

  • OMG, give the lady a moment,2min.., to catch her breath, climatise,wipe out the sweat,look for the flag, internalize the achievement of her world record, course record and defense of her tittle and after that then take all the pictures you want.
    That’s a marathon,not 100M,jeez!.

  • The weekend was like a dream with marathon records tumbling down.
    Congrats Brigid!!!
    She got inspired by Eliud Kipchoge but Mo was hit by a Salazar bug.

  • Paula Radcliffe could have shown some more humanity and really congratulating the new world record holder. She seemed very disappointed to me…I am probably wrong but what can I say…

  • Paula Radcliffe was trying so hard to hide the disappointment of losing her “untouchable” WR to Brigid Kosgei
    Despite the fake smiles and obligatory congratulations….. she failed.

  • Wow… She looked so young and fresh, as if she’s never done anything else. I’m 33 and would probably not have been able to do what she does.

  • She is soooooooooo active

    I started running to cure my lungs (bleeding due to smoking)
    Today my lungs are fit as children’s lungs and i became a marathon runner also.
    Now i am not looking back
    I am fit 100% and i can say only one thing that long distance running saved my life and it wl definitely save yours too even if u r fit…
