1002


Well - a couple of days early and "Mission Accomplished"...

Sunday afternoon I ran 13.7 miles to take my grand total for the year up to 1002 miles!

Last January 1, I decided that I'd run 1000 miles this year - and so I did.

As I ran, I've been working on a book called "Leadership on the Run". It's not ready to read yet, since most of it is still in my head - but I've learned some great lessons about leadership that came from 1000 miles on the road.

Anyway, this year, I'll put the book to paper and see what happens.

By the way, I'll run today or tomorrow, and continue running in the days ahead. Though I've "accomplished" the "mission" - I'll still run. I guess the "mission" was just a milemarker that helped me keep moving toward the greater goal of healthy living.

There's a lesson in there somewhere...
