The Wednesday Post

Greetings from the Colorado Plains!
The Avatar checks in.

The running Avatar picked up a postcard in Otis, Colorado, the last town he ran through this year.  It's a little dated, but it gives you a feel for the landscape.

The Avatar and I, despite a woefully torpid December, finally staggered our way to a 1000-mile running year.  Woo!  For me this of course involved a lot of running in Oregon, where I live:

For the Avatar, there was a whole lot of running in Wyoming:

Yes, that is 1000 miles.  Wyoming is big.

The Avatar's run has now taken him to 44 counties in seven states.  On the map, purple is 2012, blue is 2013, and green is 2014.

He's also well over a third across the country.  As we zoom out for the perspective, the little red and yellow dots represent counties that the Avatar has been to that I, the actual Michael5000, have NOT been to:

Where to now?  East!  East!  To Kansas, and beyond!

Kudos to you! Are you aiming for 2015 miles this next year?

I've said that my goal for 2015 is to run 1000 kilometers.
