    Great fitness month, if you ask me.

      191.0 for September  (shooting for the 'way to run exactly even mileage' award)

      1,703 ytd

       

      ...raced 1 x half-marathon, 1 x 10K (PR), and logged my first race Did Not Start, but got a can of baked beans in the race swag bag.

      Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless


      just a simple cat

        baked beans!    You guys get all the best swag!

         

        Running is stupid

          Thanks Carolyn for doing this.  Nice picture too!

           

          September = 88.4 miles

          YTD = 308.8

           

          This is the highest mileage month for me and:

          I ran my first race since 2006.

          I also ran my first half marathon for a PR of 2:39:09

            91 miles

              101051-223-028. . . ..

                Only 84 miles, my goal of keeping it over 100 a month failed due to stressful family issues that kept coming up.

                 

                1850 feet of elevation gain in 1.3 miles duirng a hike (ave. 35% grade), that I guess is a steepness record for me.

                "During a marathon, I run about two-thirds of the time. That's plenty." - Margaret Davis, 85 Ed Whitlock regarding his 2:54:48 marathon at age 73, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle."

                  I had 157.4 miles in September.  Ran two marathons, one a PR and the other was my 2nd fastest.   And I met Opie! 

                   

                  The honor was mine! You were such a good hostess. Could I make this entry a placeholder for now? All I know is it was a monthly mileage PR for the year. With only my Kindle Fire, I don't have a way to upload my last couple of runs for the month so let's say about 200 miles. Won my AG in a XC 5k.

                  "We are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect.  But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence.  I am not remotely interested in just being good."  Vince Lombardi
