The Proclaimers said they'd walk it, but I've done them one better:
I ran it.
I don't normally run the day after a long run (10+ miles), but when I saw that I was only 4.5 miles away from hitting this milestone, I had to do it. Waiting one more day would have killed me.
I'm such a geek when it comes to running - I know that it's just a tool, but the sense of accomplishment that I got when the "500" logo came up on my computer screen was fantastic.
It's good company to be in.
According to the Nike+ website, there are 320,000 members who have logged 100 miles or more. That number drops to 45,600 for people who have logged 500+ miles.
And one of them's me.
