August 2016 miles are in!
I went through a fierce kidney infection that slowed me down there for a bit this month. As a runner, I accept there is going to be some pain in my running, but my kidney pain was an illness I let go for too long. I talked about this struggle and acceptance, here in “Runner’s Pain, Injury & Illness.”
There are 18 days until my next half marathon
There are 81 days until my next full marathon.
This month I was able to achieve 217 miles. I have not been able to work on speed since getting sick – I haven’t felt up to it. But I have been able to achieve miles, and am thankful for that!
Ready for September – cooler temps ahead!
