DAY 1000 - September 27, 2011

It is kind of surreal to think that on January 1, 2009, I took the first step toward where I am today. I want to thank everyone who supported me along the way. My family who adjusted their schedules many times so I could have time to get in a run, my friends who joined me for many of the miles, and everyone who dropped me a comment or word of encouragement online.

For now, I'll continue to run everyday - probably until I forget to do it someday. It has become habit and as long as I continue to enjoy it - why not keep going.

For anyone who is curious, here are some of the statistics from the last 1000 days:

Total mile: 4253
