Steve DeBoer has passed 150,000 miles (March 29, 2015)

Steve DeBoer passed 150,000 miles on March 29, 2015, which turned out to be the 47th anniversary of his first recorded run (not planned, as he only realized it would happen 2 days before).  He has run a minimum of 1 mile every day since June 7, 1971, which is now the 3rd longest active running streak in the US and longest east of the Rockies.  His highest mileage year was 3,820 in 2013, so he may also claim a record as the only person who has run over 150,000 without ever having run at least 4,000 miles in one year.  He still also does daily push-ups, having passed the 1.5 million mark in 2012.

-------------------- June 30, 2011
I started running in 1968 to get in shape for basketball.  I got cut from the team but kept running and now have the 5th longest documented running streak in the country (longest east of the Rockies), passing 40 years on June 7, 2011, which happened to be the hottest day in Rochester in 23 years (101 degrees).  I've never been a fast runner (PRs 4:47 mile, 33:15 10K; 2 hrs. 42 min marathon) but am consistent, even through MN winters,  a kidney stone and broken ankle. My exercise routine includes 100 pushups before I run, which probably explains why I feel warm enough to go shirtless until the temperature goes below freezing.
