4.1 Miler

Why the .1 you ask? Because of race distances over the course of the year, as well as a few irregularly distanced training runs, I have had this pesky .9 mileage in my running log for the past month or so, and I keep thinking: "I should just run that extra tenth of a mile someday so I can have even numbers in my log." But, each run comes along and I never go that extra tenth. However, tonight I decided was the night, so I tacked on the extra tenth, and now I can rest assured that my mileage for the year (thus far) comes to a round, even number.

Phew. I bet we'll all sleep better now, right?

ROFL! Hahaha. Sounds like something I would probably do.

Kevin said...

LOL! That mustve kept you up at night worrying about the missing tenth of a mile

Lisa Slow-n-Steady said...

That cracks me up. Running an extra .1 to round up the numbers. LOL

MCM Mama said...

LOL! I'm happy to hear you'll be sleeping better now. ;o)

MN Mom said...

Jess, been meaning to ask you if you have read any great books lately? I have been in a reading mood.

Nice job!

Erin said...

Did you run around your parking lot to make up that distance? ;)

Running Knitter said...

I feel much better. Thanks! LOL

MissAllycat said...

There is definitely something satisfying about nice even numbers. :)

Jenn N Butter said...

Wow, that does make me feel better. Now if only my numbers where even. I am at 7.71 for this month and I ended last month on 30.15. I doubt that I will ever get mine straight though. LOL!

That is SOOOO something I would do too.

ws said...

well, I certainly will sleep better knowing you have even mileage in your log.

When I ran my first half marathon, I made sure to tell everyone (and still do) "it was 21.1K"

LMAO....

I am the same way. Seeing the .9 would annoy me.

AnthonyP said...

LOL !

TNTcoach Ken said...

A true runner's mindset!

Ted said...

Whew!!! I will not have to worry about taking Lunesta this time. This will definitely make me fall asleep better tonight knowingly that you have an even mileage in your record.

Wes said...

Yesssssss!! OCD is BEAUTIFUL :-)

Marcy said...

I hate the .9 it drives me nuts. I try and avoid it when I can LOL I don't' blame you ;-)

L*I*S*A said...

You know, they make medication for OCD. ;)

I'm a fan of round numbers, too. Glad you evened everything out ;)

Viv said...

I am glad you got the .1 void filled. I would laugh if you connected the Garmin to the computer and it changed to 4.2 the horror that only a freak like me would understand.

sunshine said...

Hahahaha! I'm so OCD that this is something I would totally do!

chia said...

You're too cute for words :-)

P.O.M. said...

Ha, that's something I would do too. I was so mad that last month I ran 98 miles. Why the heck couldn't I pull 2 more out of my butt somewhere? I need round numbers for everything. OCD much?

Vanilla said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does this. Sometimes if I have a 5K coming up (AKA 3.1 miles) I'll stop a training run at x.9 miles just so it is nice and round at the end of the week.
