Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome your newest local hero. This guy is amazing.

Flint resident Riley McLincha (you may know him as the guy who runs the Crim and dribbles basketballs at the same time, or as the entertainment at our St. Paddy's Day Beer Fest every year) has finally complete his "Runyak for Liberty," and shared it all live on his Facebook page.

He started his quest in 2009 and, as of last Thursday, has kayaked all the way from the Flint river watershed, thru the Great Lakes, thru the Erie canal to NYC. And, if you're wondering how he does the "runyak," he drives to his start point and paddles a distance. He then runs back to the car. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Thanks for sharing your journey with us, Riley! Amazing!
