    "On Tuesday, Mark Covert plans to do something he hasn't done in 45 years: not run.

    Covert, has not missed a day of running since July 23, 1968 — a streak of 16,437 days, the longest active streak in the United States"


    Great job Mr. Covert!

    2017 Goals:

    #1: Do what I can do (200+ training days, 200+ aerobic hours). 

    #2: Race shape (1/2 marathon, 2 half Ironmans, marathon)

    #3: Prepare for 2018

    some call me Tim

      Indeed it is.


      "“I have a mid-foot collapse and my foot is completely twisted to the outside. I really can’t lift or push off anymore; I just kind of drag it around,” Covert said. “I’ve taken a couple of headers when I’ve been out on the road."


      That's just marvelous.

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.

          I did around 390 days when I was young.

          Now my knees need the rest.

          It seems he has to quit running at 63 I hope to run longer than that.
