01/22: MY HOME RUN FOR FUN

I am going to stretch myself a little this year and chart a virtual run back to my home town of McClure, Ohio to the house I grew up in. This will be a 1489 mile journey and I hope to complete it in 365 days.

6 more miles.
slow but steady

01/18: MY HOME RUN FOR FUN

With COVID disrupting the three races I use to motivate myself to stay in shape, I’ve come up with a work around. I am going to stretch myself a little this year and chart a virtual run back to my home town of McClure, Ohio to the house I grew up in.

Here is where I am today.

I must be virus free. This is the first day of the year I felt strong on my run. I feel like I’m getting in the groove or in the zone. I’m supposed to be on my way to Las Vegas, NM from here.

Follow the yellow arrow (White Lakes Rd) and don’t get lost!
Above is a view looking off to my left. That is the Sandia Mountain on the left half.

Playing catch up. I should be at 65.3 miles today. One cold set me back a few.

With COVID disrupting the three races I use to motivate myself to stay in shape, I’ve come up with a work around. I am going to stretch myself a little this year and chart a virtual run back to my home town of McClure, Ohio to the house I grew up in.

This will be a 1489 mile journey and I hope to complete it in 365 days. I believe this will be the farthest I have run in a year. I need to average a little over 4 miles per day. For me this will be difficult but, it will all be down hill right? I will run my work out and then map that distance toward my destination.

A very long road ahead.

And the mountain behind me.

End of two weeks I have 33.3 miles logged of 1489. My average should be 4.08/day, but I am at 2.37/day. So I am about 24 miles behind. I’m behind, but so is my cold now. Should be healthy from hear to the end of the year. Today was first full workout at this stage so I am happy about that although it was a slow run. More of a psychological challenge than a physical one today.

Below I turn around to look back at the mountain.
