Jaycee Bill Byrnes has been running EVERY DAY for 35 years (day 13,000)!
An amazing Jaycee individual development story: Bill Byrnes, president of the Jaycees 1982-1983, who now lives in Sandwich on Cape Cod has just completed his 13,000 (thirteen thousandth!) day of running — Every. Single. Day — never missed a day in 35 years! I asked him about the conditions and he explained, “Yes hurricanes, wintercanes, nor’easters, freezing temps and freezing winds, smog, smoke, torrential rains, slush, and incredibly beautiful Cape Cod days. Yes, I’ve been blessed with good health. I can count on one hand the number of days I’ve run that I should not have and ended up feeling worse after running than before. Ronald Reagan was in his first term of office when I started.” Bill was featured on the Cape Cast (Cape Cod Times) video on day 10,000 at
Bill, you are an INSPIRATION!
