If you say the possibility of breaking a world record never crossed your mind, you're probably lying. While some records are easier to break than others, the historical record-setters found on this list spent a considerable amount of time training and working towards their achievements. These historical records range from well-known stories like Secretariat to they-have-a-record-for-that accomplishments like the world's tallest goat jump. If the images here don't inspire you to go outside and try to break a record yourself, maybe they'll motivate you to continue working towards your own goals.
At the very least, unlike the creepiest photos found on the internet, the photos here could brighten your day.
