It’s a smidge over 1000 km, which is one megameter (1 Mm). One megameter!
I’ve plotted 1000 km from my house at Free Map Tools, and it looks like this:
From here to Toronto is 1000 km. I’m just short of Miami in the other direction. I’ve been to Toronto, but I’ve never been to Miami. Coincidence?
I plan to set my goal at 500 miles for 2015 again. I could set it higher, but there’s little incentive; at 500 miles, you get a swimsuit, and there are no prizes for more.
If I estimate 250 swimming days a year (five days a week for fifty weeks), I need to swim 3520 yards each day. We’ll round up to 3600.
And my pool is open today.
Happy New Year!
