A Massachusetts man who made a resolution on January 1, 1989, 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 engineering manager told The Daily Item of Lynn 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 3 miles a day. At least once a week, he puts in a 6- to 8-mile run.

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