visualizing running 2,422 miles

View San Diego to Jacksonville, 1 Fuel Stop in a larger map

i get asked every day how i lost lost 100 pounds and the shortest answer i give is that i ran a lot and a little less. at the time i hit the 100# mark i had run 2,357 miles ( as of writing this i’ve now run 2422 miles ).

i wondered how far 2,422 miles is, in terms of driving across the U.S., and thanks to this ask metafilter post learned that 2,357 miles is almost exactly the same distance as the shortest drive across the continental U.S. from san diego, california to jacksonville, florida.

so, i’ve run the equivalent of the shortest drive across the U.S. with plus two marathons and a half marathon!

and that’s how you lose 100 pounds 🙂
