500 miles

You know that song where the guys says that he would walk 500 miles if he could be with a girl (or maybe another guy, who knows?) Yeah, so I know how that goes. 500 miles is a long way!

And since it is the middle of September and I am only at 500 miles, it it painfully obvious that I will not reach my goal of 2011 miles in 2011 (unless I start running 15 miles each day). And I'm surprising alright with that.

I still think I can reach 1000, and possibly even 1200. I haven't done the math to figure out the exact number, but 2000 kilometers is somewhere around 1200 miles. I could go all metric at the last minute and then claim victory.

When I started this I thought I'd give more frequent updates, but that requires actually running. I thought I'd keep track of how I felt each day, whether the run was sluggish, or if I felt like a gazelle. Who has the time, though?

Seriously. I commute an hour each way to work, and by the time I've gotten home (hopefully traffic's not too bad or the basement isn't flooded), gone out for a run, showered, and eaten, the last thing I want to do is think. Or write. Or think about writing, never mind actually doing.
