Goldfein emphasizes fitness by walking (actually, running) the walk

By the time he finished 13.1 miles later, the 59-year-old Goldfein was able to claim a personal achievement and something larger – a hard to miss statement from the highest levels about the critical role fitness plays in assuring that the Air Force meets every mission, every time and everywhere.

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein acknowledges congratulations after finishing the Air Force Half Marathon Sept. 21, 2019 at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. Goldfein’s shirt honored the Special Tactics Memorial March earlier this year that paid tribute to Staff Sgt. Dylan Elchin a Special Tactics combat controller who was killed in Afghanistan in 2018. His hat carried a SERE instructor logo that was given to him during a visit to Fairchild AFB. (U.S. Air Force photo by Scott Ash)
