MY GOAL IN AUGUST WAS TO RUN 139 MILES AND I ENDED UP RUNNING 139.6 MILES. 
{BELIEVE ME, THAT .6 REALLY MATTERS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I AM BEHIND IN MY MILEAGE GOAL FOR THE YEAR.}

MARATHON TRAINING STARTED THIS MONTH SO MY MILEAGE STARTED PICKING UP NATURALLY BECAUSE OF LONG RUNS ON THE WEEKENDS. EACH MONTH I WILL TAKE A PICTURE OF MY FINAL MONTHLY RUNNING CALENDER AND YOU CAN FIND THE PICTURES HERE. THE PENCIL WAS THE ORIGINAL PLAN AND THE PINK MARKER IS WHAT I ACTUALLY RAN. 

MY FIRST LONG DISTANCE MARATHON TRAINING RUN WAS 8 MILES AND IT WAS ON AUGUST 4TH. IT WAS A HOT AND HUMID MORNING AND I REMEMBER IT FEELING SO HARD. THE 8 MILES DRUG ON AND MADE FOR A ROUGH START TO MY TRAINING.

MY SHORTEST RUN WAS 2 MILES AND MY LONGEST WAS 15. {WHICH WAS RAN WITH MY SISTER-IN-LAW WHICH MADE FOR A GREAT RUN!}

THIS MONTH WAS RIGHT ON TRACK FOR MY TRAINING AND FOR MY 1,000 MILE PROJECT. 
I AM FEELING REALLY GREAT ABOUT THE MILES I PUT IN FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST. I AM GETTING IT DONE ONE MILE AT A TIME!

JANUARY: 25.45 MILES
FEBRUARY: 0
MARCH: 15.2 MILES
APRIL: 50.2 MILES
