Day35 Sunday 10/03/10

ran 2.0 miles
Today marks five weeks, 88.6 miles, and 16735 words. My daily running average is 2.53 miles a day and my daily posting average is 478.1 words a day. These miles and words have opened my mind and heart to avenues they have never known before now.

To establish where I am coming from and how valuable this goal is I would like to point out that I have no desire to run everyday or to post on this blog every night. But I find it to be a necessary burden for a worthwhile cause. This world may be large but that is no reason for anyone to be small. When I don’t want to run I convince myself to persevere by imagining how petty I am to consider idleness when so many soldiers have and continue to serve in our military, fighting for our freedom. They don’t get to wake up and say, “I don’t feel like doing this today.”

When I don’t have time or energy to type a post for this blog I remind myself that, by candle light and no modern technology, our forefathers drafted a brilliant path against all odds for this country to follow. And for me to not continue this goal would be an insult to every success this country has had for more than two centuries. It is a testing goal, but it is nothing compared to what so many others have done.

1,991.4 miles to go.
