Then when I was 13, I had a coach who really encouraged running and I bought my first pair of running shoes.

2014-12-23 14:07

1310 miles. That distance is just a couple hundred miles shy of the length of US Highway 101 that stretches from Oregon through California. And as of the finish line at the 2014 Kiawah Island Marathon, it is also the total amount of "race miles" (not including miles of training!) run by South Carolina marathon runner, Ferris Stewart. This successfully finished marathon marking Stewart’s 50th marathon.
