One Third of a Century–The Streak Runs On!

My consecutive day running streak passed one third of a century on Thursday, September 14, 2011.  That’s 33 years, 122 days.

Something about that “number” has been quite intriguing to me.  One third of a century sounds powerful and long.  One third of a century is more digestible than 12,175 days, or 1,051,920,000 seconds; although passing the one billion second mark, last year, was a “cool” landmark for me–celebrated in an earlier post.

So, to honor the  “1/3” day, I decided to capture a few video moments–on the run–when the run was official.  I also decided to capture the moment when my GPS registered 3.33 miles!  Then, I couldn’t help but get a little nostalgic by evoking memories of my 40+ years of running.  You’ll also notice that I had a little brain cramp when I was documenting the big moment.  My bad!

Check out my video documentation of the big run.  As you’ll see in parts of the video, it’s the words and thoughts that have the most meaning; the hand-held videography has a lot to be desired.

Here’s to hoping that there are many more milestone runs in my future!  See you on the roads.

    Nathan: Thanks for your crazy congratulations. I resemble that remark–in a good way.
