I don't want to toot my own horn here but tooty, toot, toot. That is pretty dang good considering one week of August I was stowed away on a big yellow moving truck slowly making its way cross country. My goal was to keep running even though things were kind of crazy and I did. Probably helps that I moved to a cooler, more runner friendly area with miles and miles of trails and friendly neighborhoods.
Half marathons done: big fat 0
But that is about to be over and I will be running lots and lots this fall and I am so excited to explore new places and get new medals....oh and run.
|Dear running gods please don't let something like this happen to me when I finally achieve my treadmill dreams.|
One of my goals for this year, which I decided upon I think around April was to try to run a thousand miles this year. Right now I am at 654.8. I just don't know if I am gonna do it. I would need to run around 86.3 miles a month for the rest of the year. Which would be fine if every month was like August, easy peasy. But with my right leg being a baby and my pretend tapers I like to do before 1/2s sometimes the mileage goes down when 'racing'.

Number of big stressful life changes: a lot
Number of big stressful life changes that are going well: all of them
Two thumbs way, way up for August!
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend, long running or just resting. I hope everyone gets a three day weekend because three day weekends rock!
