BLOOMINGTON--When Dan Seaway has a goal in mind...he doesn't walk to get it.
That's why this athlete can be found at Gold's Gym gearing up to break a Guinness World Record.
He's planning to raise 10,000 dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and do it all on foot.
"I'm aiming for 78.6 miles...nice round number," said Seaway. "Three marathons worth."
Seaway must accomplish this feat in 12 hours.
The current record for farthest distance run on a treadmill stands at 63.1 miles.
"The fitness ones are within reach and I found this one and I think I can pull it off," said Seaway.
He's been training for months.
While Seaway admits, the days are long, and the treadmill travel is monotonous.....
"It's kind of boring sometimes, looking at the same scenery for 12 hours..."
Thoughts of helping patients at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital are encouraging him to achieve this daunting task.
"It's a great cause they've got the telethons, going on and the sad things...sick kids...and it just makes me sad watching it," said Seaway.
For guy who's focused on fitness, he says helping children get well is a win in itself.
"I think they do a great thing," said Seaway.
If he breaks the record in the process...well, that's an added bonus.
Seaway's big day takes place at Gold's Gym Monday morning.
