    “Running to him was real; the way he did it the realest thing he knew. It was all joy and woe, hard as a diamond; it made him weary behond comprehension. But it also made him free.”
    ― John L. Parker Jr.


    Happy Halloween!  Time to post your October miles, and any PRs and AG awards!   Hope everyone had a good month.  Awards given as usual for most miles, fewest miles, average, median, prime numbers, cool totals, and anything else award-worthy!


    Happy trails!




    I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.

      Thanks Wild.  Guess I'll jump in here first.  Fighting on again off again stomach pain kept my miles down from where I was planning:


      77.62 for the month.

      Never ascribe to malice that which can be explained by incompetence.

        Only 58.5 miles for me but I did run my first marathon.  Started to run too early after marathon and strained my knee so sort of re-habbing before running club's annual winter series.

        Gettysburg Marathon North vs.South April 26th 2015 (4:05:20)

        Chasing the Unicorn Marathon August 16th, 2015 (4:19:27)

        Monster Mash Marathon October 17th, 2015

        Philadelphia Gore-Tex Marathon November 22, 2015


          I'm done for the month so I guess I'm ready to contribute my miles and bring down the average.


          Only 57.3 miles for me.


          I think the only noteworthy thing that happened was I became member #3011 of the half fanatics but it was my two half marathons, six days apart, at the end of September that qualified me for that.


          Trails are hard!

            you want to talk bringing down the average?  try 24.4 miles for the month.  This month flew by, but the startup that I've been part of has been largely successful, if not quite done, and I sincerely hope to start ramping up a little.  of course, since i'm 170 miles off my 621 mile goal, it's not looking real likely.  Roll eyes


            Thanks, Carolyn.

            Need a fast half for late fall.  Then I need to actually train for it.

                (The only thing I can think of for those #s is, with a little rounding down, I ran the sum of the angles in a triangle...)

                I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)

                        139 miles. Miles down to sinus and chest cold. Will just have to rebound in November.

                          81.3 miles for me this month. I think that's the lowest since January, but I didn't check....

                            977 miles for the year to date

                                Tom--I know the year is going by quickly, but I didn't think I missed a whole month.  Wink  Or are you psyic and know how much you'll do?  One way or another, though, you'll nail that 1000mile barrier.  Sure wish I could say that--I'd be thrilled with 1000K.  Sad

                                Need a fast half for late fall.  Then I need to actually train for it.
