The end of a year and a significant end for me, yesterday evening i ran my last official citystrides run thereby fullfilling my personal sportive goal of tracing all streets of the 8 cities surrounding my home.
I started with finding out about citystrides during training for long distance and keeping the long runs bearable and fun. Soon after that, the means changed to a goal itself. I tracked close to 200 ’ official’ runs in 2 years among some more cleanup runs (since the recent update) and lunch walks during work. I covered 5200 streets now and who knows maybe i start some more cities waiting to be run a bit further off.
I love being active with numbers and all the planning of the runs, trying not to miss another node, seeing the visual candy of the lifemap and really getting to experience my neighborhoods. Passing places from long ago, childhood memories, passing teenager and school places in real life and in my mind at that time. It was a good journey and i still try to fill the empty space now not planning, running and enjoying all this like i did for the past years.
