This is actually an article I saved from December 2019. It's an amazing story about an accomplishment that not too many people could conceive of. Starting in the 1950's, Russ started recording his mileage and just kept at it every since. 

What's funny is the part where he talks about having a car but didn't drive it as much. He actually put in more miles on his bike than his car. Wow!

This is one of those kind of stories that can give you a nice dose of motivation and inspiration. Whatever your goal is, just think about what Russ did. If he can ride his bike everyday and clock in a million miles, what can you do?
