Then I came home and checked in to MapMyRun to jot down some notes on tonight's run - and was incredibly surprised to see my total mileage for the month. By the time I complete Sunday's half marathon, I'll be over 50 miles for the month of August.
That's not a lot for veteran runners, but it's an awful lot for me. Prior to August, my most run-tastic month only charted 10 miles, and those were pretty hard-fought. This month, I've pushed myself a lot farther, but haven't really felt so much strain. And to me, that's what this summer was really all about: finding myself on the road.
I am so thrilled to be not only meeting, but surpassing my goals by such wide margins. It makes me incredibly excited for the future, and for all the things I have yet to accomplish - but know now that I will.
Two thumbs waaaaay up!
