August is over and my streak of 100+ months hits four.
The month began the same as others but included a photoshoot for my website dedicated to running (link in my bio) with a promising young photog, Amalie (@ams_hindash).
Her work is incredible for her age (photo in the top left), and it’s inspiring to see a person just entering her first year of high school take an art like photography so seriously.
Hopefully, someday she becomes a world-renown photojournalist, and I can brag and say, “yeah, she once took photos of me running around a park.”
The temps and my average daily miles dropped mid-month. I decided to take an entire week off from running for two reasons.
First, the kids stayed over from an entire week, and I didn’t have the time to run for an hour each day. We spent the week day-tripping including a drizzly afternoon taking in a few horse races.
I dropped the kids off to their Mom on Sunday and immediately hit the road. I needed 25 miles in a week to break 100 for the month.
I broke up the days of long runs with a few interval workouts with friends and a running group. Shout out to Natalie (@runf.i.t) and her Wednesday night crew kicking my ass in the best way possible.
I needed 10 miles on August 31st. With the help of another running comrade and comfortable weather conditions, I logged in over 10 and hit my monthly goal.
On tap for this month – prepping for a Ragnar in October and my first official half marathon in November.
See ya out there.
