Run Blog – Marathon – Ultra Marathon – Running


August has been a very busy month that saw me get a little bit behind my blogging, but not my running. At the end of the month I get to celebrate some little victories and a Personal Best.

After an up and down first few months of 2015, August saw my #running get back into high gear. It has been seven months since my last 200 mile month, but I’m back on the wagon. I finished the month with 210 miles. Still a little behind the monthly¬†pace to reach 2015 miles for 2015 but I feel like I’m back on track.

On top of running over 200 miles, I also finished the month with no new injury issues. After some achilles tendonitis and vertigo that is a victory for 2015. The best news within the miles is that I crossed over the 200 barrier with no concerns.

I have never been a good streak runner and most months I log a little over 20 running days per month, but August of 2015 saw me run 27 out of 31 days. For some who run multiple days, weeks and months on end 27 days is not much, but for me it was worth writing about.

In August I also had my second running feature published in the July/August issue of Marathon & Beyond.

And on top of all that I had some awesome running time with my wife (Michele) joining me on her bike just a few short (five) months after she had partial knee replacement surgery.

Running may not solve all the world’s problems….but it made for a GREAT August.
