ALBUQUERQUE, (UPI) — Larry Johnson of Albuquerque, N.M., celebrated his 93rd birthday with a 100-mile bicycle ride, the same distance he rode to celebrate his 90th.

Johnson was not a workout enthusiast until he turned 50, and has since run 20 marathons, KRQE-TV, Albuquerque, reported Tuesday, adding when he stopped running, he turned to cycling.

He credits his energy to regular exercise and healthy eating, saying, “I apologize to McDonald’s but I haven’t had a fast-food hamburger in 10 years. But I do like their coffee.”

His birthday ride Monday was a training run for competition in this summer’s National Senior Games in Cleveland, an event in which Johnson has competed annually since 1989, the television station said.
