Local runner attempts to break world record

SANTA MONICA Weber started his run by dipping his toes in the Pacific Ocean then headed east. The naval officer is running unassisted, which means he won't have a support car.

The record he's trying to beat stands at 46 days, 8 hours, and 36 minutes. Weber's final destination is New York City.
