>Look What I Can Do!>Just went over 77,000 miles run. Log began 4/22/76.
What an inspiration you are! I started a bit late to have any chance of matching you. I'll have to see how my running is going when I'm 100.
Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
Awesome achievementYou are a legend mate!

Keep on runnin' man!
I have been telling my wife for many, many years that I am a legend. Her comment is "you are a legend in your own mind."
Thanks for the nice replies. Nick
Excellent! I too, was once a smoker. I've now been a non-smoker for more years than I smoked. Way to go!
Don't call me Buttercup!

Nick, did you stop smoking and then start running, or did you start running and then stop smoking.
I was a smoker like you (two to three packs a day) back in the late 70's. I was making fun of a friend of mine about running (how boring I said - any one can do that - it's not a skill sport like tennis or golf) and he challenged me to compete in a 5K that he was training for. I ran a mile or so a couple of times a week for a few weeks before the race. Ran the 5K (something like 21:30) and was hooked. Stopped smoking so I could run better.
Unlike you, I did not continue for too long - about 6 years. Then I joined the club of which you speak. Then at age 55 I started back. See how long I last this time. Thanks for the inspiration.
