"Speedo Bill" Murray, of Black Lick, eclipsed 10,000 miles of swimming laps at the YMCA of Indiana County on Wednesday.

Not all at once, of course. His friends said Murray has been tracking his laps for 12 years and has swum as much as 13 1/2 miles in a day.

His friends treated Murray to cookies and a “congratulations” balloon to help him celebrate the milestone. (Tom Peel/Gazette)
