I'm sure this will be more impressive to some of you than others, but I ran a whole mile without stopping today. In less than a month, I've gone from running only as far as it takes to get to the bathroom to pee in the morning to running one mile. See?
So it looks like I'm pretty much on track to meet my goal of being back up to running four miles a day by the end of this calendar year, and of being up to 6.2 miles in time to run the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta next July.
Who knows, if it looks like I really get there ahead of schedule, I'm going to try to run four miles while smoking a pipe.
