The independently wealthy runner

Yesterday, Jess had an interesting post daydreaming about life as an independently wealthy runner.  She laid out her typical day.  I’ll confess that I think about this very thing from time to time.  Here’s what I’d do:

1)  Wake up and start a run before sunrise

2)  Stretch

3)  Eat breakfast

4)  Shower

5)  Go back to bed

6)  Have a leisurely lunch

7)  Spend the afternoon reading or working on a pet project and snacking

8)  Run an easy afternoon run

9)  Shower

10)  Have a relaxing dinner with moderate amounts of whiskey

11)  Relax, read, work on pet project some more

12)  Sleep

That would be kind of nice.  We’ll see where life takes me.


  1. it’d be tough, but i think you could pull it off.

    good luck hiding your wealth from the gov though, in this case i would be perfectly fine having them spread your wealth around. 😉

  2. Uh oh, that actually sounds like my day, only without the whiskey. Only problem is I’m super poor.

    But it’s nice to dream! 🙂

  3. That is truly the life. I have been living like that the last few weeks but now that will end as I start work monday!
