Bill Thorn runs his 45th Peachtree

ATLANTA (July 4, 2014) -- The 45th running of the AJC Peachtree Road Race on Friday kept "the streak" unbroken.

It is Bill Thorn's unbroken streak of running every, single Peachtree.

He and his two sons -- who ran the first one with him on July 4, 1970, when they were 6 and 10 years old -- all ran together on Friday morning.

Coach Thorn is the only person who has run them all.

And, for the record, he is proud to say he ran his 45th exactly two months shy of his 84th birthday.

Jon Shirek caught up with Bill Thorn -- on the run.
