Last Thanksgiving 2009 my son Jesse suggested we run 1,000 in one year. We set up a chart (click here) and started keeping track.
I JUST PASSED THE GOAL A FEW DAYS EARLY! Not only that but I crossed our huge milestone on a bridge crossing the Tiber River in Rome! This was exciting since my first book is entitled CROSSING THE TIBER.

And above my subsequent run the next day (Wednesday) around the Walls of Vatican City. Click the smaller image above or here.
And below, our long walk through Rome. Picture shown is a statue in the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola who has his foot on the head of Martin Luther.
