If a picture is worth a thousand words, here are 1000 words to describe how it feels to run 1000 miles in just under 11 months:
H is my frequent companion on short training runs. She and her pink-purple kitty cat bike get lots of smiles wherever we run, and today she and I logged 4.5 miles. I reached my mileage goal more than 5 weeks ahead of schedule, and H was disappointed to learn that she hadn’t pedaled quite as far as I had run. She’s a good sport though. She let me take her picture, and then she took mine.
