Two Milestones - One Week (Read 907 times)

    What's that saying about a journey of a 1000 miles? Smile I managed my first 50 mile week. By doing so, I also hit 1000 miles for my "career". It was 11 months in the doing, but they're in the bag and it feels pretty damn good. RA (THANK YOU ERIC!) and all of the people on these boards have been a huge inspiration for me, and continue to motivate me to get my big arse out the door. So if you're reading this, I'm looking at you, beer in hand and I'm saying "thanks". Run hard. Q

    Just because running is simple does not mean it is easy.

        A 50-miler after only 11 months...wow! I don't think I will see 50 miles until maybe 2.5 years after I started, if that early! Go Mike!

          ::raises glass and "clinks" Mike's beer:: Congrats Mike!! Those are some awesome accomplishments! And I ditto the inspiration one gets from this site- it's truly amazing!
            I've been at it a couple of years now, and I've never been close to a 50 mile week. Come to think of it, I Probably never will. Very impressive, keep up the great work Mike.

            May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.

              Great work. Really shows dedication. Have a drink on me! Smile
