This idea came from my friend J Strobel, who suggested I have a map marking my “progress” across the country. This map is a visual representation of where I’d be if I ran on Interstate 95 from my house, straight south. (I had to “run” a few miles on Route 90 West in order to reach Interstate 95). The miles keep adding up, usually 30-45 miles a week, so my progress is quite visible.
In two days, I’ll complete Week 13 of training. With this week completed, I will have run 43 miles this week and 299 miles since I began in December. In terms of hypothetical if-I-ran-south-on-95, this places me in the little Bordentown Township of New Jersey, crossing over Route 206.
