A Green Country veteran hit a very special milestone today on Riverside.

Gary Britt ran his 50-thousandth mile this afternoon in Tulsa.

Britt says he started running when he was serving overseas in the Vietnam War.

Back then he says he was smoking a pack a day and knew he needed to get healthier.

Gary tells us "It's been an enjoyable ride, now I'm really hoping that I will be able to talk to you guys 25-years from now. If you aren't retired and I'm still running, and we can do this at 75,000 miles."

Friends and family were on hand for Gary Britt's milestone today.
