An update from Craig Davidson at the end of 2022

Streak  #1:  41 years, 5 months:  210,901
Streak  #2:  568  days:  4,379
Streak # 3:  343 days and counting:  1,651 (as of Jan 9 2023)
Lifetime miles:  219,280 (as of 12/31/2022)
$$$ found 2022: $128.37, lifetime total: $10,667.78

2022 was my lowest mileage year since I started running.  Due to the series of strokes I had from Jan 31 to March 6, I didn't start running again til April 25 & then it was very slow for the next month.  I'm back to running 40-45 a week, but it has been a struggle.  

I'm just so grateful that I'm able to come back.  I'm running the Rock and Roll Phoenix 1/2 this Sunday (Jan 15) and the plan is to survive it. My goal is to run LA marathon in March as my last marathon, as I missed it last year. 

Previously from Craig:

Craig Davidson has reached 207,823 miles (Jan. 31, 2018)

I hit the 200K lifetime running miles at the Whiskey Row Marathon on May 2, 2015.  Last February I surpassed 200K lifetime "steak miles" at the Runner's Den 10K February 7, 2016.  

As of January 31, 2017 my lifetime running miles stands at 205,027 & 202,614 "streak miles."  My running streak started November 5, 1978. If all goes as planned, I'll be reaching 14K consecutive days March 4, 2017.  Now the key is to stay healthy!

The "official" countdown has begun. 200 to 200. Hit 199,800 running miles this AM. The plan is to hit the 200,000 milestone at the Whiskey Row Marathon May 2 in Prescott, Arizona. It will be my 28th consecutive Marathon there & my 30th time running the event (I ran the 1/2 twice). It's been a long "run" since that first 3 miles on November 1, 1977... 

Next up on the list will be 200,000 lifetime running "streak miles" (had 2,413 B4 the streak started on 11/5/78). Here is my mileage update through 12/31/2011. I also have a consecutive day running streak that dates to 11/05/1978 that includes 186,387 miles. I have a marathon PR of 2:28:14 (1982) and a 50-mile PR of 5:37:23 (1986). 

I am a "Legacy Runner" at the Los Angeles Marathon, having run all 23 L.A. Marathons to date. I'm not too thrilled about the L.A. date change this year, as it will cause me to miss the Palos Verdes Marathon that I have run 16 years in a row. On May 2 I am running the Whiskey Row Marathon in Prescott, AZ, for the 22nd time, and I didn't think it would be too wise to run 3 marathons in one month! I have worked for more than 20 years at The Runner's Den shoe store in Phoenix. The Arizona Republic featured me in an article last year.
