Ralph McKinney daily running streak
Joe DeRosa shares some calculations about Ralph McKinney’s running streak. while some of us may question the wisdom of it, there is no doubt that it is remarkable:
At age 65, my fellow runner, Ralph McKinney, of Wilmington, De. will be closing in on running at least 5 miles every day for 24 years. Yes, that means:
93 pairs of running shoes
Imagine, this is only his minimal daily running accomplishment. Ralph ” squeezes in ” 5K’s through marathons . This is done regardless of being sore, sick, tired, having business or family obligations, and inclement weather.
Ralph is listed 72nd in the informal ranking of runners running at least one mile every day. As of now, there is no official listing of runners running at least 5 miles every day. I would imagine it would be a very short list.
