Running milestone achieved

running_route

I have been running (again) for over a year.  In my younger days, I got quite obsessive about running.  At my peak, I was running 7.2 Kilometers almost every day.  I absolutely loved it.  At some point, life, smoking, and work replaced running…   a sad story, I admit.

Flash forward a couple of decades ( and a few years), and I am running again.  This time, running is my way to combat a 2 decade lifestyle as a web geek, more calories in than out, and really quitting smoking.  My wife and I often run together, which in itself, makes running far more enjoyable.  At this point, I am trying to run at least 3 times a week.  I have been running essentially the same route for 6 months or so.  The course, we (my wife and I) have chosen ends on a fairly long up hill stretch.  By the time we hit the top of the hill, we are both pretty much done.  I have been stuck at the same 2.8km distance for a long time.

Today,  I hit the top of the hill (and the normal end of the route) and was not ready to stop.  According to my iOS app, Route Mapper, I ran 3.58 Kms today.  Okay, maybe not a huge leap forward, but yeah!!!!
