First off, I have to give some thanks to my blogging buddy Helly. On the last day of July she did a post about how she made it to 100 miles of running for the month. Well, that prompted me to go and look at my Nike+ app…and realized that after my morning run I was at 96.25 miles. Whaaaaa? I couldn’t let it end like that. So I went on a second run to put it at exactly 100.0 miles. Just squeaked it in.
I know that is a lot of miles for some people, but I also know that it ain’t for others. I mean, look at my buddy Brian’s numbers for July. He ran 400 flippin miles! I also have an elite buddy here in town that runs around 120 miles a WEEK when in marathon training. So there’s no reason to get cocky no matter how far you go…there’s always someone going further.
Anyway, I did have some friends point out that if the app had been tracking “tacos eaten” instead of “miles ran”, that I would’ve probably been in First Place! Ha! And speaking of which – here’s the last ones I got to experience…
And in other news… I happened to be checking something in my blog settings the other day and noticed that somebody had found me using this search: “Why does my anus burn whenever I am wasted?”
Hmm, good question. I can think of a few answers, but I’m more interested in what y’all think? Haha!
So, can you answer that dude’s question? Do you know how far you run per month? Who else knew vegetarian tacos could look so good?
Heck yes to 100! I had a couple months last year that were 100, but I’ve been trying to be a little more balanced with yoga/strength training this year. Plus I lost my gym so no treadmill this Winter!
