Lifekraze (www.lifekraze.com) is encouraging people to get into running, high-fiving them for keeping track of their workouts and motivating them to keep pushing with Team Leaders like Mark Covert. Get this: Mark has run three miles every day for 44 years, since July 23, 1968. He was the first person to wear a pair of Nike waffle shoes in competition -he still has the shoes, ran in the 1972 Olympic Marathon Trials and is the track and cross country coach at Antelope Valley College in Lancaster, CA. You can tell from this interview that Mark’s just as passionate about running today as he was 44 years ago.
