Just call me an overachiever

So somewhere along the line this year I decided walking and/or running 1000 miles by the end of 2013 would be a worthy goal. And as I racked up the miles over the long, hot summer, I realized I could, maybe, if I really made an effort, nail it by the end of September.

Cooler temperatures, lower humidity and the fact that I'm not lugging an extra 50 pounds around certainly made it easier to go the distance each day. I've missed a few – a very few – days over the past several months, but for each of those missed days I made up the difference over the next several.

And today, the day BEFORE the last day of September, my 1000 miles are DONE. Finished. In the can.

Of course, I'm not done walking or running. There are three months and one day left in 2013, and I'm sure I'll keep on movin' on down the road and up the hill and around the bend. Because if you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you've always got.

And I really like what I've been getting this year: Healthier. Thinner. Stronger. Happier.
