“How many straight days have you run at least one mile?”


“How many total miles have you logged during your streak?”

“Let’s see… 50,923. I started on August 13, 1985.”

“What’s been your biggest running-related setback during the streak?”

“When I tore my hamstring in May of 2012 during a church softball game. I tore it on May 7 and could only run a mile a day through May 26. … I didn’t think I’d race again without properly treating it. … I just ran a marathon this past June.”
