Every. Single. Day. Steve Gathje's Epic Running Streak

On September 26, 1972, Steve Gathje went for a run. Nixon was president and a gallon of gas cost 36 cents. Gathje ran every day afterward for 45 years and 10 month. Every. Single. Day. On his wedding day. On each of the days his four children were born. On the day he got stranded in Newark Airport and knocked out a run in the parking lot. Through blizzards and polar vortexes. Through it all. Gathje's streak ended on July 28, 2018, when, after weeks of severe pain in his hip, he learned he had osteoarthritis and would need surgery and an artificial hip. What motivates someone to run 16,742 days in row? Find out on this episode of Move. Together.
