July Recap

July was HOT as HELL!

I'm actually enjoying the fact that I don't have any races on the calendar and I can just run for the enjoyment of running.

I stepped on the lying scale and was shocked at the number that appeared on the broken apparatus. I'm also wondering why my pants are getting tighter around the waist too!

July was always the month of prepping for a Fall marathon and ensuring that the body was ready before you dished out the money in August. It seems like a lot of folks just sign up and then figure out if they can handle the training.

July was also the month to really get acclimated to the heat so you could race in August and die!

I always remember co-workers asking if I had been on vacation from my running tan! Have you been asked that yet?

Okay August, I know the days are getting shorter and the 'Back to School' sales are around the corner.........

Around the corner?! I went into Office Max a couple weeks ago and they already had the displays up!

This was the first year my running tan was really bad. My back looks like it's wearing a white sports bra all the time.

20 days in the 90 days; hottest month Detroit has seen based on average temperatures. Wow!

Is it September yet??

I've noticed that trend with marathons too. I guess no one wants to train and then get shut out from the race. August is always a tough training month, weatherwise. Hope you fare well.
