I wanted to run today, because it was a single-instance day. I had a packed running bag, so I pried myself out of bed early, took the bus to work, and was eventually ready to run home. But, home from work is only four miles, and the all-time record for February 13 was 4.13 miles. Obviously I wanted .14 more miles, but really I wanted .87 more miles, because all the charts and graphs and what not are based on whole numbers. But then too, what I really REALLY wanted was 1.11 more miles, because that's what it would take to make February 13th not the worst cumulative 13th!
Reader, I managed it.
In fact, I ran until I noticed I had run exactly one hour, at which point I was basically home anyway. It got me the all-time record, and also best Monday of the year to date. Also, I'm up to the FIFTH best February on record, and -- this is pretty good -- I passed 100 miles for the year.
So, that was a pretty good five consecutive days. I think it might be time for a rest day, though.
The Avatar ran north from Mt. Vernon on Indiana Highway 69.
