(NBC Newschannel) A Chicago man has been hit an impressive milestone.
Val Price has been running every day since 1979. He began after vowing in a New Year's resolution to run 24,901 miles...the distance of the Earth's circumference.
When he accomplished that, he set another, 25 years of running every single day. When he achieved that, he set one more. It was a goal that required an early morning run every day, no matter the weather or location.
"I run every day. And obviously we've had some severe weather. I can still recall one day we had an ice storm and the only way I could stay on the street was to run right in the middle of the street."
On May 18th, 2007, 27 years after it all began, Val reached the milestone. He's logged nearly 42-thousand miles, but he's not stopping there. He's still running but is now considering another hobby.
