Joggling Streak – Day 112

112th day of a quest to joggle at least one mile every day for 1000 days in a row.

Summary: Ok, I’m still a bit sore from the marathon. It’s not awful but each stride sends a sharp pain reverberating through my thigh muscles. I’m joggling noticeably slower. But it was good to get out today. You can smell spring in the air. More people on the sidewalks help break the desolate loneliness of winter.

On my final stretch back home, a pickup truck pulled up along side and a guy rolled down his window to yell, “Dude, you’re my idol!! That is so cool!” I grinned, waved and said “Thanks”. Then, the muscle pain evaporated. I sped up and ran with a smile the rest of the way home. There’s nothing like a compliment to overcome pain.

  1. I hope your Nevada marathon went well, Perry. As for running in the days following a race — I know just what that’s like: the fillings in my teeth rattle.
