7 Eyewitness News first introduced you to Jim Cielencki in March, two months after he started his goal of running every street in the City of Buffalo, ending with the Buffalo Marathon.  As he's gone along, he's documented his journey on his Instagram "milebymilebflo' to show off everything he's seen in the Queen City.  So where is he now?

Check out my last story about Jim running every street in the City of Buffalo!

We checked back in with Jim just a few days before the big race.  He says he's run about 866 miles in total.  The city has about 700 total street miles, but he had to backtrack down dead ends, and find his way to every different route.

His Instagram has hundreds of pictures of amazing things he's seen along the way, and he says he's enjoyed every minute of the journey.

"It's been a wild adventure of just seeing neighborhoods, and running in the weird and wonderful Buffalo weather.  But I've seen so many neighbors - so many neighborhoods, and so many people that were really awesome," he said.

Jim's final streets will be the streets on the Buffalo Marathon route.
