Being that we’re already past the half was point in September, this is old news, but I’m playing runblr catch up and I wanted to highlight this: I ran 100 miles in August.
I wanted to hit 100 in July, but it just didn’t happen and I was okay with it. Back in February, I ran 5 miles (which was a lot at the time, and still is some days) on the 28th so I could hit the 50 mile mark for that month. I was blown away. 50 whole miles. Last month, I doubled that, which honestly doesn’t surprise me because I’m training for a goddamn marathon, but it excites me.
That 100 miles in August also included not one, but two half marathons, the first of which was my first half ever - The SeaWheeze Half Marathon in Vancouver, BC, and then the next weekend, I ran the Chicago Women’s Half Marathon, plus an extra 3 miles before the half because training that weekend called for a 16 miles long run.
I hope to make a few backlogged posts in the next couple days, including race recaps for the above 2 races.
Also, 23 days until the marathon.
That’s it. I’m constantly reminding myself to trust the process and trust the training. Gonna make it through this.
Happy Thursday :)
