Last year, I commented that I'd completed 1000 miles for the year on March 13... and it was weird because despite the unpredictability of the first 6 weeks or so of the year, "almost every year I hit the 1000-mile mark in a 3- or 4-day window (2nd week of March)."
This year - March 14th.
This despite the fact that I took an involuntary hiatus that went 12 days into 2010. It's not like I'm planning it!
As Homer Simpson famously said, "There's so much I don't know about astrophysics... I wish I'd read that book by that wheelchair guy."
