Nobody expected Robert Webb to be where he is now. He would be somewhere on the streets, they predicted, as he was when he was 6. Or maybe he would be selling drugs, or sitting in jail, as he was when he was 14. He wasn't supposed to graduate from high school, they thought. He wasn't supposed to go to college. He wasn't supposed to end up living with a nice family in a two-story house with a spiked fence and a two-car garage and a bed of flowers in the front yard.

It took Robert Webb only one hour and 39 minutes to climb 14,162-foot Mt. Shasta and to break a record that stood 60 years. "Even when I was going to break the record, I wasn't pushing myself to the point of feeling uncomfortable," Webb said. "I enjoyed it the whole time." The previous record, set in 1925, was two hours, 25 minutes. As he covered the last half-mile on the summit plateau July 5, Webb said, he "was in a full run." Friends, extra gear and food waited at the top.
