62,000!!!! (Read 566 times)

    That is the number of cigarettes I would have smoked in the last 8 1/2 years had I not quit when I started running...so instead of smoking 62,000 cigarettes over 8 1/2 years...I ran 10,000 miles.

     

    It was amazing to hit 10,000 lifetime miles on my run today...it's not something I ever thought possible!

      You rock!!!

        That is awesome :-)   62,000 cigs, indeed it is great that you were able to replace a bad habit with a good habit.  !

                    Nice!  It's great that you can use a habit as a tool to help yourself instead of letting a different one hurt you.

                      Thanks everybody!

                      And as for replacing a bad habit with a good...I used to get - not quite offended - but definitely put off when people would "accuse" me of being addicted to running, but a year or so ago I embraced it as a compliment...there are worse things I could be addicted to!

                        Nice !

                                Probably still less than I spent on races last year.

                                 

                                I'd calculate it but I actually don't even know what cigarettes cost these days (they were $5-ish when I quit I think?). I think I saw on the Today show that the "true" cost of smoking a pack a day a year (including health care costs) was around $3,900/year in 2012.
