"Running Around the World" by Rob Preston

Rob Preston, president and CEO of the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce, is always running somewhere. His work keeps him on the go, but his favorite hobby for almost 20 years is running. He often is up before the roosters crow, pounding the pavement for a morning workout. At age 48, he has competed in 106 marathons covering the entire United States and five continents. He has a journal of his experiences with dates, places, weather conditions, race finishes, number of entrants, and special occurrences that he can refer to instantly.
