365 Marathons in 365 Days

If this guy (Stefaan Engels) can run 365 marathons in 365 days, I should be able to keep my humble running streak going the rest of this year.  My shortest run is slightly over 1 mile and my longest will be 100 miles (hopefully).  Engels is 49 years old.  Pretty impressive!  Check out this story:

Engels runs 365th marathon of year

Seems like this fellow may have already achieved this same feat...but not been recognized as a world record attempt. I'm only on day #76 of my running streak, but these guys have inspired me to keep going.  One step at a time, one day at a time.

And speaking of 365 days, the planet is celebrating another year in the life of Christopher. Happy birthday!

Thanks Tom.

As a Canadian, the most impressive running streak I've seen has to be Terry Fox's 143 straight days of running 26.2 miles... on one leg... with cancer rapidly overtaking his lungs.

David,

Yep, that's pretty awesome! Terry Fox is often ignored when it comes to impressive running feats.
