RON HILL

Farther than you.  Longer than you.  Faster than you.  It could be you.

Ron Hill ended the longest running streak in history this past weekend.  Saturday’s 1 Mile was the last day of 52 years and 39 days straight with at least that distance.   My old buddy *Alex Galbraith from Houston moved up a notch to 4th on the active U.S. list.
