Tomorrow is the day.

The final run of 2014.

And with it I will eclipse the 500 km mark, in one month of running, for my very first time, ever.

I am just under 7 kilometres away.

And tomorrow is scheduled to be a 15 km run.

So somewhere around 6:30 a.m.

An hour or so before the sun awakens.

When the temperature usually takes a slight dip.

Let me know if you feel a small surge of warmth.

Let me know if the skies above momentarily flicker with unexplained light.

Because that will be me as I serenely smile.

As I pass across the 500 km mark.

For the first time ever.

    1. Thanks Raymond! When my watch beeped off the 7th km this a.m. and my 500th km was official, I couldn’t believe how happy I felt. It was like the figure skater who lands his first quad – he’s excited but still has to reign it in and concentrate on the rest of the program.
