Progress - 4/2/10 (Keenbrook, CA)
I'm now 2,569 miles into my journey and am just passing Keenbrook, CA on Route 15. I'd give you some facts about Keenbrook, but the internet seems a bit void of them. I'm sure the town is, um, beautiful.
I was in Texas last week for a law school competition and was only able to eek out a 4-mile run over a 5-day period, so I was a bit concerned about my mileage. This week, I was able to get 19 miles in (had to cut my 7-mile run today a bit short).
Before plugging in the mileage, I thought that I'd have to worry about an increase in mileage to get me to LAX by May 15, 2010. It turns out that the opposite is true. Based on my mileage to date, I only need to run another 77 miles. Based on the six weeks left until graduation, that means I just have to do a bit over 12 miles a week to get there--no problem (I say, knocking on wood).
The next big turn is from Route 15 onto Route 210 West toward Pasadena. I'm starting to smell the (virtual) LA air!
