But blogging does… Life has been busy busy this August, so some niceties had to be sacrificed. Thus, it’s been awhile since you’ve been subjected privy to my thoughts. Too bad! Because August was a huge month of miles. My most ever actually. Now that August is over, the grand total was 204 miles. I know, I know, but please, hold your applause. It definitely feels like I ran 200+ miles last month.
September has kind of picked up where August left off, though so far the intensity has fallen off a little. There was an unexpected switch up in the schedule already (future blog post to come with more details [updated]). I did get a pretty good Birthday Run in yesterday though. Scheduled for 12 miles, but I ended up finishing around 11.3. Why the shorter distance, you ask? Because it was my birthday, so I could do what I want. And because the island I was going to run on was closed (how/why/when do you close an island??), so I had to modify my route on the run (PUN!).
Tomorrow is a tough 9-miler, and then Ev and I are going to Maine! I’m excited to run in Portland, especially with 18 miles lined up. I only hope I don’t get mauled by a bear or giant lobster. I’ll be sure to carry a claw cracker and wear a bib. It should be a great time! I’ll be sure to report back after we get back from faux-Canada. Stay tuned.
