A Thousand Miles for Freedom — #freedomrun

In running on June 18, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Warning: this is not a post about biking (but it’s short).

Running + biking = *me* time — to escape all the grown up stuff and be a kid for a few minutes each day.  A daily dose of freedom. 

I’ve started a challenge over at dailymile called ‘A Thousand Miles for Freedom’. The goal is to run 1,000 miles by July 4, 2011. I’ll be logging the miles and posting other random notes here and there.

If you think running a thousand miles sounds fun, join us by clicking ‘A Thousand Miles for Freedom’ or tweet your run using the hashtag #freedomrun. And, if you’ve read this far I’d say you have the persistence to accomplish the goal. Please send a comment. What’s freedom mean to you?
