Racing the Mayans

I was updating my log today and it dawned on me that by September I will surpass 97,000 miles for my running career. If I meet this years goal of 2700, by the end of year I will be sitting at about 97,750 and change. Why does this matter? I'll tell you.

Authors disagree about what humankind should expect on Dec. 21, 2012, when the Maya's "Long Count" calendar marks the end of a 5,126-year era.  I know this: I will have roughly 356 days to complete the 2250 miles I need to make 100,000.  That's  6.3 per day OR about a 10K a day to make 100K. Just in case...

Finally I have my motivation: 10K a day for 100K! Nice!

  1. Quite impressive Rich! I don't think I've ever met anyone who kept an extensive running log. That would be a fun project--to spread all your stats in Excel and analyze all those numbers from 1966 to now.
