1,001 Miles

I broke though the 1,000 mile barrier today. 1,001 to be exact.

1,000 more than I ran last year.

I'm hoping to run 1,800 miles next year, which will average 150 miles per month.

I remember the 1st mile, last year on my birthday in late December. I think it took 12 minutes, and I walked at least 3 or 4 times.

I remember the first time that I averaged around 9:00 per mile in early January. It was at a hard effort.

I just finished running 26.2 miles, averaging 9:03 per mile.

1,000 miles is about the distance from my door step to Boston, Mass. WOW.

This time last year, I would have thought that was crazy.


  1. 1000 miles is a remarkable achievement, even more so if you started running last December.

    Here's to 1800 next year!
