Bill Thorn plans to keep the beat going.
Thorn, the track and cross country coach at Landmark Christian School in Fairburn, said Tuesday morning that he’ll extend his AJC Peachtree Road Race streak to 43, keeping alive his status as the only person to run every Peachtree.
Thorn, 81, acknowledged that his streak may not stretch too far longer.
“It’s kind of getting down to the end, isn’t it?” Thorn said. “I don’t know how long, but just take it one year at a time. I know it’ll end one day.”
Thorn continues to maintain his daily exercise regimen, including running, stationary bike, walking and trampoline. He’ll run the Peachtree with his granddaughter Kenzie Thrasher.
