Who is Pete Kostelnick? The man behind the fastest run across America

Who is Pete Kostelnick? The man behind the fastest run across America

“I am not going back,” he said. Then he laughed. Back, for Kostelnick, would be 3,067 miles to San Francisco’s City Hall, where he’d left 42 days, 6 hours, and 30 minutes before this moment. It was a moment that, witnessed only by a small gathering of friends, family, and media, was vastly understated compared to the monstrous task he just achieved. At precisely 5:30 p.m. on October 24, Kostelnick broke the record for fastest run across America . He averaged 72 miles a day on the country’s back roads to shatter the previous mark—set by a shoe salesman named Frank Giannino Jr. in 1980—by more than four days. The record is notable, not only for its place in popular culture—supporters of Kostelnick wore shirts with the phrase “Forrest Gump is Fiction” on the front—but also for how long it took to fall.
