Goodbye September - My Biggest Month (in miles)
September is the biggest training month (miles wise) that I have ever had. With the races and such coming up, it will probably be the biggest this year. Although I don't put in those 50+ mile weeks like some folks that are seriously training for a marathon, I am amazed I even found time to do 150. And as it turns out, going that extra 2 miles while running with Maddy today rounded out the number (no need for junk miles).
Now it is just 4 more weeks until the Marine Corps Marathon! The two friends who were originally signing up for this race with me won't be running. Both had very good reasons for not running it this year. Fortunately, a co-worker of mine and his wife are both running MCM and staying in Crystal City (as I am) so I hope to hook up with them. We won't be running together. They are going for BQ's! But it will be fun to know a face in the crowd.
