“Yesterday, with a 25-mile tour around Mexico City’s historical center, I completed my tourist edition of #everysinglestreet CDMX. The total mileage for the nine day project added up to 220 miles, over eight neighborhoods and one really long street. More important than numbers though is the deep sense of place I received by taking on this project. It is something I hope to do, in some form or another, in every place I land in the future. .
Thank you for following along on this little project. To those that have taken on an #everysinglestreet of their own, I salute you! Also, I really appreciate seeing your maps and photos of places I’ve never seen and might not visit. Thinking of doing it? Give it a try! It can be fun, challenging (mapping and physically) and is a really sneaky way to get your base miles in while the trails are under snow. .

When I came up with an idea to run every single street in San Francisco in a short period of time, I knew that having the right shoe was going to be paramount to undertaking such a massive project entirely run on concrete and asphalt. With an innovative support system and ample but precise cushioning, the Predict carried me across 2,000 kilometers of streets and sidewalks within the City by the Bay. This is a five day a week shoe. You can do a lot of miles in them and feel great the next day. I know I did.
Stay tuned! @rickeygates is about to finish his #everysinglestreet Vol2. In Mexico City 😎
What about you?

Lace up your shoes, breathe deeply, put one foot in front of the other, smile, move faster,... and play.

5000 is Cologne's old zip code. And it’s estimated #EverySingleStreet distance. @run.3ky has found a long-term project in exploring his hometown: "I want to know every corner of 'my city', pass every house, every sign, every place. And get to talk with people. People that ask why do I run into dead-end roads and turn around. Or ask if they can help me. Besides - I am on parental leave right now - I can tell my little daughter that she has already run, I mean rolled, through most of Cologne 😎. I really like self-organized projects as I can fit them easily into my everyday life. I am a passionate collector that likes planning. I am super motivated and also think that I look awesome. hahah“

I’m curious - where does one draw the line between public art, beautiful graffiti and simply graffiti??
My answer - I’m beginning to find it all beautiful... and if not beautiful, at least interesting. Sometimes it is agreed upon, sometimes a lot of work goes into it, sometimes it is a blatant 🖕 to any number of things (society, the actual building, etc.). On the whole, the more I pay attention, the more I see and the more I appreciate it. .
What are your thoughts on graffiti? Art? Protest? Boredom? .
