I had no idea why Nike chose that number, but then my innate Canadianism kicked in and I realized it was 5000km - this feat has moved me from the grandiose color of "Purple" to the (I imagine) more elite color of "Black".
I feel like a refurbished Kenyan.
I'm not sure if Americans get to progress on the color meter at a more rounded number, like say 3000 miles, or if they just stare at the screen and think that the Nike guys are either crazy or smoke a lot of pot while designing their website.
I was already in the Purple category when Nike rolled out their color idea, so the change doesn't mean to much to me - except that thankfully everything on the Nike+ website no longer has a purple tinge to it.
|It just seems "Manlier" now, right?|
But as you can see, my January totals aren't too bad.
22 Runs, 93 miles, and my average pace is 8'47" - I can be happy with that, as it feels like an improvement from when I got back on the horse, so to speak. (Or Moose - I'm Canadian, remember?)
We'll see how it progresses in February, and if I can be just as pleased going into March and my Half.
Another plus - there was no Mabel today, and My Baby purred like a kitten. (For those of you who think that sentence sounds retarded, just read my previous post and all will be made clear.)
Now I'm heading to Hockey, and then I'm going to get to spend some quality time with the couch.
Really, could you ask for a better day?
Jackie Robinson wishes he was me.
