from Don Slusser: I've got 178,439 lifetime miles as of 12-31-08. My starting date in high school was 1-10-67. I just used a calendar then. In college I started a more detailed log with information about distance run, effort or pace, who I ran with, course, weather, weight and any cross-training. I hit the 100,000 mile mark during the 1988 Pittsburgh Marathon. I had to juggle miles for 6 months so I wouldn't go over the total beforehand (May 3, 1988). I was 36 years, 6 months at the time. My marathon PR is 2:17:43 at the 1980 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials.
My wife Tammy guesses she's at or near 80,000 miles. She started keeping records in 1983. She's more proud of her many fast marathons--7 under 2:40, and about 60 (estimate) under 3:00. She ran in three Marathon Trials--1992, 1996, and 2000--and has a PR of 2:37:14 that won the Pittsburgh Marathon in 1994.
