Throughout this blog’s history, I’ve highlighted several inspirational stories. Inspiration has come from different faces and different places. There are those who have overcome adversity, others who defied the odds, and others who have performed at the highest level. We all find inspiration from different sources (and for different reasons). What is inspiring to one may not light the fire for another. I therefore strive for variety within this section.
Today’s story is one that is quite unique. The individual performance of Mark Covert at any given time may not be record setting, but the cumulative total certainly is. Mark Covert has run a mile or more every day for over 40 years. Assuming he continues, he will soon close in on 15,000 consecutive days.
