THE Lowly Peon


7 Miles!! 
22 January 2012, 12:06am

No, not that movie.

A few weeks ago, I started to fall a bit in love with running, and set a goal of running ten miles without stopping. At that time, I was running five miles, and was pretty proud of it.

I'm still not at ten miles, and that still seems like an ambitious goal, but I'm very proud to say I ran seven miles today without stopping. It was fantastic!

I ran 7.06 miles in 1:01:09, for an average pace of 8:40 per mile (that's 6.92mph). For those curious, I listened to August and Everything After (by Counting Crows), followed by the first half of No Need to Argue (by the Cranberries). And while running, I found a more efficient way to verify a credit card number using the Luhn algorithm in Ruby.

A very successful Chinese New Year's eve!
