September was INSANE!
I started the month off with the Awesome 80’s Run. Then school started for my son. Then soccer and soccer practices started.
You can’t even imagine how much planning it has taken to get my runs in this month. Working full-time five days a week, shuffling around the kid, soccer practice twice a week, plus soccer games on Saturdays. Somehow I fit in 78 miles! It would have been 87 miles, but I had a total long run fail on Saturday. I’m blaming the fail on wearing heels to a wedding the night before, and also getting a flu shot.
September’s goal was 44 miles and I almost ran double that amount. Crazy! Insane!! And wow, the heat, there was so much heat. I also got another pair of shoes. I love my Saucony Kinvara 3’s and my original pair was getting worn down and had way too many miles on them. I heart these pink, black, and purple ones!
October’s goal is 41 miles. I can’t wait to support everything participating in this for another awesome month!! This is Half Marathon Month!! Eeek, I will be running my first half marathon on Sunday, October 7th, the Long Beach Half Marathon. I’m scared and anxious. Wish me luck!
P.S. I even got up early today and ran 3 miles before work!
