It's Friday, so a little dose of sweetness is deserved to tide you over till home-time – this ad about an elderly Irish couple who run marathons together should suffice.

Wexford couple Joe and Kay O’Regan both turned 80 just a month ago, and in the the last 30 years have run 142 marathons between them, including the recent Cork Marathon.

Featuring in a new ad from Electric Ireland, the inspiring couple talk about how they proved their friends wrong by taking up running at the age of 50 and going on to achieve so much ever since.

We can confirm that we want to be them when we grow up.
