August is over and I missed my 200 mile running goal by three lousy miles…
I’m so upset….I hate that I missed my goal……..NO I’m Not!
I wanted to hit 200 miles this month…That goal makes me feel like a real Ultra Runner. I had two days to log a lousy three miles. So Why did I miss it?
I have three very good reason.
#3 Zip Lining – My wife planned an adventure filled get away over Labor Day weekend. We went zip lining in the Shenandoah Forest. It was awesome! I decided not to run to spend the “full” day with Michele without distractions. It was worth it!

#2 Fishing – Little did we know when this trip was booked that we would have a fishing boat and take to the river hauling in a ton of good eating fish! We caught, bluegill, bass, and a bunch of small ones we threw back. To say these were good size keepers…..they were good size for Minnesota keepers!
#1 Camping and Family Time (w/my wife and puppies) – In our rat race world, and trying to log the miles I need, getting quality time to just hang out is a rare occasion. I needed three miles but I decided to take a little break from running to gain a few bonus hours with these guys!

Was it worth it?
Emmy Lu thinks so! And I agree…..back to it on Tuesday!
