“I’d been running for about a year. And I had a really, really bad injury. Missed two months. Couldn’t run a step. And I just remember saying a little prayer – Lord, if you let me run, I’ll run everyday the rest my life.” I guess high school cross country coach Jon Sutherland meant what he said. He just broke the record for longest running streak in the U.S.: 16,438 days in a row.

+ James “the beast” Nielson set a record of his own. He was the first runner ever to break five minutes in the Beer Mile. But “questions about the record-setting race are being raised by beer-milers who have examined his video like assassination theorists poring over the Zapruder film.”
