Running Update

I meant to get this up yesterday, but never got around to it.  After my run, we headed down to Elk County to catch a glimpse of these magnificent animals.

It’s been a tough month as far as mileage and it’s going to make a hard push this last week to get to 100 miles for October.  That is my goal – that would make 100 miles six months in a row.  I am also pushing hard for 1,000 miles this year.  Currently I am at 811 running and walking miles.

I have also entered the UnderArmor Running Challenge.  That challenge is to run 1,017 km (GPS verified) in 2,017.  I am shy at the moment by 13 km.  So I should be able to complete that this week.

It has been a good week, with several good, fast and long runs.  I have been close to a 9 minute mile pace a couple of times.  Pretty good when a few weeks ago, I couldn’t hit a ten minute mile pace for six miles.  So it’s been a good week and I continue to press on!
