Amerithon Challenge: 998.1 miles left. Yippie.
wow…. getting hard to keep this up…. but still running at my own pace this Amerithon challenge. I promised NOT to wear the tee shirt until i get to half way…. so a long way to go yet. Be advised, i do not RUN fast, i jog, and sometimes there are hills but nothing like i would actually have encountered in this cross country terrain. But it does motivate me.
Getting pretty tired (real world tired)… i wonder if i will make it the next 2800 virtual miles (fake world).. LOL. The tiring part is that so much advertising is fake, so much news is fake, so many opinions that are only reflections of a personal reality are biased. It is difficult to sort physical reality from my own reality. Case in point… estimate from LivingComfort for repairs vs replacement of a gas boiler. I see four numbers in a row (parts and labor) 888.00 for an expansion tank, 888.00 for a boiler refill drain thing, and 888.00 for a back flow preventer and 888.00 for an air scoop. Give me a break. If i had 9 items in a dataset, and four of them were 888.00 i would immediately say… check for errors and copy pastes. This is fake.
319 miles completed. Not quite 10%, so two years + to go, just now leaving my home state of california. I enjoyed seeing places i have visited in real life, and been skiing and to which i have driven. I also laugh when i see the terrain and know full well that i would still be struggling on the mountains, but i am really running (virtually) on much flatter, easier ground. December 1 2020, Just passed the last of the Mohave desert and heading toward Los Vegas (virtually) and a map of miles completed 470.
