A 56-year-old California marathoner says he is close to a major milestone, 100,000 miles of running.
Fanelli, who grew up in Philadelphia and began running cross-country in high school, ran his first marathons there.
Fanelli says he has slowed down a bit with age. He has halved his weekly distance to 50 miles.
But he starts most days with a 5-mile run near his home in San Anselmo.
His wife, Renay, who met him at the 1996 Boston Marathon, said he once almost missed a plane to London because he was doing his run.
"Some people say I'm compulsive," Fanelli said. "But I say it's more just competitive."
