So Phil McCarthy, a 1986 graduate of Norfolk Catholic High School, is on a mission to break the Guinness Book of World Records’ time for a transcontinental run of the United States.
He of course had to pack multiple pairs of running shoes for the journey. McCarthy began his journey at the city hall in San Francisco on Aug. 21. His goal is to finish the entire run at city hall in New York City in less than 42 days, six hours and 30 minutes.
In 1994, he moved to New York and that's when he became interested in long distance running. Now 50, McCarthy currently has his eye on breaking the Guinness Book of World Records time for a transcontinental run of the United States.
