1,000 miles ran milestone :)

on saturday, september 3, i finally hit that 1,000 miles ran marker. yup, i was determine to get there before i stop running until december. of course, as you can see from my last post, running at the moment is a bit tricky. it's tough carrying that extra weight. amazing. i guess you can say i somewhat can relate or feel what it's like to be carrying extra weight now. especially if that weight is unwanted due to laziness or plain ignorance -- whichever. basically, let's just say i don't intend on being overweight in my lifetime. let's hope i can do everything in my power not to get there too. it just sucks trying to work out when you have 20-30 extra pounds. it's tough -- period.

so yes, 1,001 miles ran to be exact. i'm so proud of myself. that's not bad at all. i can't wait until december to pick it up again. in the meantime, i'll enjoy what little peace and quiet i have until the big arrival. plus, it's nice being lazy again... and not having to wake up so early for that morning jog. although, i do have to say, i kind of miss it. or more like, miss the feeling of accomplishing something before the start of day. when that ugly morning mist hits my face, it feels so good. well, it won't be long i guess. only 3 more months to go and i'll be back out there hitting the pavements again assuming everything goes according to plan. :)
