300 Days and finally off the 15

Day 300 - July 2, 2008

Today is a day to celebrate for me - I finally made it to 300. I know I still have a long way to go to get to 1000, but somehow it seems more possible. It also is a time for an update on my cross-country journey. After 300 days of traveling north on Interstate 15, I finally have reached Idaho Falls and am turning East towards Jackson Hole and then north to Yellowstone.

To make the 4000 miles across country, I really need to get my daily average up and that is going to take some long runs. My goal for the next 1oo days will be to raise my daily average from the 3.2 miles I'm at now to 3.4.

Today's run was shorter than I had expected to do for the big day. I slept like garbage last night and my legs were dead when I rolled out onto the blacktop. So, bagging the long run I chose my favorite run - the 3.6 mile Davis run. It was a great morning and I really picked up the pace on the way back. I thought about going back out this evening if I had the time, but it didn't work out. So here I am, 300 days, 973 miles, and 119 hours into my streak. It is pretty cool to think that by next weekend I could hit 1000 miles. I know I should be well past 1000 already if I'm going to get to 4000, but still, 1000 miles in 10 months is pretty cool.

Thanks for hanging in for 300 days - I hope you'll keep checking back as I edge closer to 1000.
