Before you start reading this I should clarify that I am reviewing today’s run, not the last 12 months. Today’s run was done in the shape of the numbers 2 , 0, 1, and 6. I was inspired by a post on the Streak Runners International FB page and a quick look at my map showed me a block of streets that would allow me to draw numbers with my feet.
The biggest problem with this plan was that the starting point was 2 km away. I considered driving there but then realized that I would finish far from my car anyway so I might as well just run there. The numbers part of the run was about 5k, add 2km there and 2km back and the total will be 9k. That is a good run on a nice sunny day, and it is also a good run on a cold windy day too.
Another challenge was the elevation. The number “6” was particularly brutal. Upon completion I had to run home uphill and directly into the brisk westerly wind. 2016 was tough but I got ‘er done.
Goodbye 2016, you are over!
