Primla Hingorani, 72, from Mumbai is setting records and giving millennials some major #lifegoals, by doing the thing she loves most — running.

In an inspiring story captured in the Humans of Bombay Facebook page, Hingorani says, "I'm 72 — I'm not dying so why should I behave like it?"

Hingorani explains that she cannot "sit at home and gossip or watch TV shows endlessly". She says she'd rather be outdoor and stay fit than waste her time.

"I love being outdoors — I wake up and go to my aerobics class, then a brisk walk and I've recently joined a gym, just to see what it's like. I've run every marathon in Mumbai since 2004 and recently completed walking the '500 KM in 100 days' challenge," she says proudly.

Love yourself, harder everyday and watch how your life changes.

When asked about what advice she would like to give people, she told Humans of Bombay:

"Love yourself, harder everyday and watch how your life changes. All too often we focus on the people, the problems that let us down but in reality the only person who has control over your happiness is you. At 17 or 72, the only trick to feeling fulfilled and having a purpose is to love yourself, with all your flaws, all your problems and all your let downs."

Hingorani's husband is retired and all of her three children are married.
