Robert "Raven" Kraft will put your training-for a-half-marathon goal to shame.
That's because 34 years ago Kraft decided he was going to run eight miles a day until he reached 100,000. He reached that goal today.
Stints in Nashville and Alabama followed before Kraft returned home and started to run on the beach with a group of boxers. He eventually started to run solo, but over the years, more than 700 people have joined him in his run, which starts every day at the 5th Street lifeguard stand.
''I remember one time, there were these thunderstorms,'' Raven told the Miami Herald. ''I came out and still, someone from England was waiting for me. . . And I knew, I almost had a cult-like following.''
Kraft doesn't know if he'll continue past his goal, though. ''I've been doing this for a while and I never had a family, never had a chance for financial security. I think this milestone could give me a second chance in life.''
