This September will mark 50 years of running for me. I estimate I have gone on 16,285 runs over the course of the past 49 years and 4 months. I think it’s a fair and conservative estimate that I averaged 6.15 miles on those 16,285 runs. That puts me at approximately 100,157.75 miles, four times around the planet. Here are the highlights of my first 50 years of running, first several of my personal bests, then several "honors."
