Great fitness month, if you ask me.

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

Regarding my 200th marathon in 8:16:36.6 at age 73 compared to Ed Whitlock’s 2:54:48 at age 73 and my first one at 3:52:15 at age 34, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle, . . . . almost like walking"
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!
