"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!
#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.
His daughter: I'm going to get up at 4 a.m. and lock the doors so he can't get out."
Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.
