A Saugus, Massachusetts, man who on Jan. 1, 1989 made a New Year's resolution to run every day is still going strong, 27 years later.
Saugus resident Lenworth "Kip" Williamson recently ran for the 10,000th consecutive day.
The 57-year-old General Electric Co. engineering manager tells The Daily Item of Lynn (http://bit.ly/1XryHN2 ) that he remembers reading at the time that if you can do something for 21 days, it becomes a habit. He said 1989 was a mild winter, which helped him as he is a strictly outdoor runner.
Williamson sticks to the streets, regardless of the weather, and puts in at least three miles a day. At least once a week he puts in a six- to eight-mile run.

He says as long as his legs work, he will continue running.
