Running Log For October 2019

Chris Illuminati Run

“We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost.” – Henry Rollins⁣⁣
⁣⁣
September flies by and the month really feels like an extension of summer. A scattering of cool mornings shoved aside by humid afternoons.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s October 1st, and my A/C is still running. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Thankfully, I am too, with two big running events looming during the second week of October (Ragnar race) and a half marathon (November 3rd).⁣⁣

I finished a great book – The Rise of the Ultra Runners: A Journey to the Edge of Human Endurance by Adharanand Finn – and while I’m nowhere close to running an ultra, reading about the experiences of others is putting the thought in the back of my mind.
⁣⁣
I’m looking forward to the colder runs, the darker mornings, the coming holidays, and growing out my beard again.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
My total miles for the year is 844, just 156 miles shy of my goal. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How far are you from your goals? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
See ya out there. ⁣⁣
