Fueled by biscuits, waffles and hot dogs, Cary’s Dave Cockman plowed through North Carolina this month on a pair of legs that carried him more than 600 miles in two weeks on a quest to run from the Tennessee border at Murphy to the Atlantic Ocean at Nags Head.

Cockman, 57, started his journey in Murphy at 7 a.m. on April 4, and on Saturday he took his victory lap on Jennette’s Pier at 7:28 p.m.

When he finished at the end of the pier overlooking the sea, Cockman checked the GPS strapped on his wrist and announced he had covered 664.44 miles in 14 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes.
