Put me down for 1000

Goal: 24,901.55 miles
Completed: 1,013.83 miles

53 miles down this week and hit the 1000 mile benchmark. I decided to run a new course this past week. The Appalachian Trail. This proved to be a daunting task as I only completed a 4 mile run on the trail. But in those 4 miles there was 1200 ft of elevation gain and I burned close to 1000 calories. This was probably the most difficult trail I have ever been on, it is definitely more suited for hiking over running, but I ran the sections I was able to run and tried my best to go as fast as possible on the other parts. Much props to those who are mountainous runners. This will now be my Friday trail until it is conquered.
