The Montgomery Village Board, at their meeting on Monday night, will honor a Montgomery boy who has run half-marathons in all 50 states. 

Aiden Jaquez made headlines around the country, last year, when at the age of 11, he completed a feat he began at the young age of 6. 

As WSPY previously reported, Jaquez told CNN in an interview that he began running because he wanted to have shiny medals like the ones his grandmother, Kathleen Taylor had. 

Taylor is also listed on Monday's agenda to be with Jaquez to accept the honor. 

Jaquez' goal was to break the record for the youngest person to run half marathons in all 50 states. 

As of the story last year, determining the verification with Guinness World Records was somewhat undetermined, but an official record keeper with a verified organization who tracks the accomplishment notes Jaquez as the record holder. 

CNN reported that the record was held by Syrafina Mohammed of Miami, Florida, who was 12 when she completed her 50-state journey in 2016.

Guiness said they do not currently monitor the record, however, the record is recognized by the Fifty States Half Marathon Club. 

The club now lists Jaquez as the youngest to finish and the youngest male. 

In other items, the village board will take action on a bike sharing program being offered in Kane County and into a portion of Kendall County, as well.

In December, the board agreed to bring back a resolution to enter the program with four bikes and a "station" to be installed at village hall.

Montgomery Village President Matt Brolley said the village previously looked at a bike share program that was started in the city of Aurora, declining. 

However, the county program sparked interest. 

A total expenditure of $6,320 is expected in the first year, with the potential for an additional bike rack to be approved at an additional cost.  

An annual subscription fee would cost $1,500 per bike, and a logo would be installed at an additional $80 per bike.

The Montgomery Village Board meets at 7:00 p.m. at Montgomery Village Hall on N. River St.
