Today on day 71 I ran my fastest time since beginning this 100 days of running and my fastest time in years.

Back on day 24 I mused on if a sub 8 was possible. Today, I found out. I’m no expert but dang, a mile in less than 8 minutes at 250 lbs seems awesome. I’m pretty proud of it. I’m running less distance these days because I’m lifting weights again (which is probably why I’m a bit heavier). I’m thankful to my past self for only setting a mile goal. As of right now, I still intend to run the full marathon at the end, so that’ll be fun.

Total Miles: 169.28 in 71 days.
