Huntsville Half Marathon - 5 Years

I ran the Huntsville Half Marathon this morning and finished in 2:54:02 (2nd in age group).  Today was my 1,826th consecutive day of running.  That’s exactly 5 years.  On October 14, 2009, I broke a running streak of 6 years, 9 months and 18 days due to a knee injury, which turned out to be an 80 percent tear of the quadriceps where they connect to my left knee.  No surgery, but I missed 4 days.  I started my new streak on October 19 at age 68.  During the last 5 years, I have run 312 races (average 62 a year).  These include 1-50 miler, 7-50K’s (31 miles), 50 marathons (26.2 miles), 4-25K’s and 15 half marathons.  To all my running friends and my wife, thank you for your support and encouragement.  Streak on.
