Numbers

Today was run number 682.  I ran 7 miles, saw 3 deer, and 5 cars.  Sometimes when I get down to the end of my run and my mind wants to focus on my exhaustion, I count.  Sometimes I count forward and sometimes I count backward.  I usually calculate how many miles I have left and assume about a 10 minute mile.  Today I had 1 mile until home so I counted backward from 600.  I made it to my driveway with 6 seconds left.  In 682 days of running, I have really gotten good at this counting thing!
