300in2016: crossing the halfway mark.

it took me a few months longer than i anticipated, but i finally crossed 150 miles run this year.

early morning run around the shelby farms lake. memphis, tennessee. september 2016.

with my training picking up for december’s st jude half, my mileage has slowly been increasing from week-to-week. my long runs are getting longer, which has been great for me mentally. after last year’s virus, i wasn’t sure how my joints would hold up after long runs, and although they are a little sore, i am chugging along.

i’m not sure if i’ll make it to 300 by the end of the year – that’s a lot of miles in only 3 months – but i’ll come pretty close. at this point i have already run more this year than in the last two combined, so i’m going to call that a win.

longest run in a long time. memphis, tennessee. september 2016.

in other news, we have a challenge winner! cindy crossed 300 miles the first week of october, and shalini followed a few days later. they are both killing it this year, and i wouldn’t be surprised if one or both of them breaks 400 for the year.

for me, it is onward and upward. next stop: 200!
