My October running numbers are not bad. 87.31 miles on a month that included a taper week and didn't include my scheduled half-marathon. At the beginning of the year I signed up for some annual challenges on Nike Running. I have achieved all of them but two at this point: Run across Texas (941 miles) and Run 1000 miles. I'm about 20 miles ahead of pace to achieve the first one but 30 miles behind pace to reach 1000 miles. To run it, I would need to run about 98.5 miles a month for the last two months of 2011. Given that I've never run 98.5 miles in any month, I think it's unlikely.
