(Editor's Note: I don't know who is the
youngest to reach 100K. Would have to do some back-checking. But Grant must be one of the younger.)
I started out running in HS as a sophomore, ran in college for a Division 3 school--Alma College, and have continued to run/race ever since. I would say since 2015, I have transitioned to ultra's and just maintaining the streak. I have a yearly goal of 3650 miles for each year. But if that doesn't work out, I try to keep it above 3000 for the year.
I am 47 years old and live in Ithaca, Michigan. I have been running since 1989. I also have a running streak of 8567 consecutive days with at least 1 mile non-stop completed. As of today, my career mileage is 100,014.
I have racing PRs of 15:58-5K, 33:10-10K, 1:14:27-half marathon, 2:52:30-marathon (Boston 2000), and 4:15:18-trail 50K.
I am a cross country and track coach for the local high school where I work (and where I graduated from). I have done seven 50k's, one 105k, and have attempted one 100mi thus far, bowing out at 55 miles.
