191.0 for September (shooting for the 'way to run exactly even mileage' award)
...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!
I guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house
Thanks Carolyn for doing this. Nice picture too!

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.
