I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

I’m an 8K a day guy!!

… every morning, everyday!! Ain’t easy at times, but I haven’t missed a single day since I began. Am posting a few RunKeeper pics … funny enough, my first two attempts were my best (maybe my body needs a break), and I did manage to squeak under 40 minutes on my second run, but the GPS shortchanged me on the distance, didn’t credit it for a full 8K. I did time myself once for half my circuit, and was under 20 minutes (while being a tad over 4K), putting me under the 5 minute per km barrier … but, as you can clearly see, I’m more of a 5:05/km runner. Ain’t the fastest fucker … but certainly ain’t no slowpoke either. I’ve NEVER been a runner, NEVER considered myself a runner, so now starting something so hardcore strenuous at my advanced age, AND, meanwhile achieving these times … well, let me say … am as proud as the proverbial motherfucking peacock!!

my milestone – 1000 blog posts!!

… it’s been a long haul since danistrulytheman reared its handsome head on WordPress, 1342 days … over 3 years, 8 months ago. 1000 posts is a personal achievement that with a lot of time, and a little bit of effort *wink wink* … was able to get there. And must say, am filled with a hint of pride. Had others along the way … 700 was my personal fave … or was it 800 with its simple matter-of-fact statement?! And keeping with that theme, won’t say much this time either, other than feel free to drop a comment, a few words if you wish. I will end my moment in sun day with a brief story. I was having a conversation with a friend the other day, can’t recall exactly what we were talking about, but I know how it ended. I asked him, “what do you want?”, and without hesitating, he replied with a one word answer … peace! Amen, brother!
