Time to post your July mileage total, and any PRs or AG placements, along with anything else you'd like to share about how your month went! Awards given for most miles, fewest miles, average, median, and prime numbers. Remember, if you want a prime number award, don't show tenths of miles! (Primes are whole numbers only!)
Coyote Trail, Golden Gate Canyon State Park:
I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.
I'll get us started.

2014goals 1300 miles , 190 pounds , deadlift 400 touch my toes
141 miles, about half as many as CNYrunner. This often happens with me in months with marathons--too many taper and reverse-taper days.
I did get 1 AG in a 5K on the Fourth of July.
Beautiful photo! 215.9 miles for me in July. Paced a friend in a 5k on the 4th, raced a 5k myself on the 20th. Neither of us PR'd but we did have fun!
who says life doesn't have a soundtrack?
I ran 6.9 miles today to end the month at 179 miles, so I can give myself a prime number award... how lame is that?
July was memorable for running the Light at the End of the Tunnel marathon on my 56th birthday, and celebrating Mariposai's 50th birthday too! And for meeting a bunch more virtual running friends in real life. Thanks to all of you who were there for making it so fun and memorable! Special thanks to Enke for inviting us to stay at her house and drive us around for three days!
Trails are hard!
54.7 miles for the month. Mostly due to heat and lack of ambition. Hope that's over for a while.
Need a fast half for late fall. Then I need to actually train for it.
228 miles for July. Most since July 2008.

*DNF’s in the U.S. but everyone’s a winner over there with credit for whatever they can do for the humid and hot (90-deg+) day in the Japan 100-Marathon Joyful Running Club’s regularly-scheduled marathons,, even those who are reduced to walking practice, in my case, for a finally-successful ascent of Mt. Fuji after two fizzles in 2011 and 2012 in the one-pronged wooden geta sandals developed by Tengu priests in ancient times for the 45-degree slopes.1.

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"
Marathon Maniac #957
No prime for me in July
185.5 for July
Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."
53.3 for July.
Lingering illness and then a vacation led to another low month. I took my running gear on the trip but there never was a good time to get in a run.
Laws are for little people.
Thanks again for keeping this going month after month, and for another gorgeous photo!
