I went out for my last run of the year this morning. Despite a number of years running experience I made the fatal mistake of not “emptying the tank” prior to the run and 5 miles into a 10 mile run it started to feel uncomfortable downstairs. By mile 9 it was near total desperation as I gritted my teeth to make the final mile back to my house for a much needed use of the toilet.
A few minutes later I spotted my house, my moments of desperation were nearly over. I grabbed the house key from my pocket as I ran the last few yards to save a few seconds of time opening the front door so I could make a quick dash to the bathroom.
As I arrived at the door I glanced at my Garmin…. 9.92 miles done. Dammit!
Despite the grimace on my face (and clenched buttocks) I set off for an additional 0.08 of a mile to make it a round 10-mile run.
You see, I like my stats and thanks to the Fetcheveryone website for providing the free tools to track and recount all of my running stats, a summary for the is listed below.
