I got in four miles with Black Jack this morning and he is turning into a good running buddy, especially on the days he decides he doesn't need to sniff everything at the start of the run.
The four miles pushed me over the 1200 mile mark for 2014. I took a little bit of time today and looked at my running history on MapMyRun. In 2013, I ran 754.2 miles and in 2012, I ran 413.3 miles. This means that I have passed my combined 2012 and 2013 total with a month still to go in the year.
You get out of it what you put into it and right now, I am putting a lot into it.
