I hit a new mileage record in September!

I took this photo during my run at the Red Run Stream Valley Trail in October.

I’ve been busy, which is why I’m finally writing my monthly wrap-up for September on Oct. 18. It was a great month of running!

  1. I ran 167.74 miles. This is my highest-ever monthly mileage, a little more than a mile above my previous record, which was from this February.
  2. I ran four races. These were the Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon, the Run, White and Blue 5K, the inaugural Pemberton 24 and the Dogfish Dash.
  3. I continued my marathon training. I’ve been training for the Marine Corps Marathon, which I can credit hitting my highest-mileage month to.
  4. I ran in some new-to-me areas. These included the Red Run Stream Valley Trail in Owings Mills and a few Richmond-area locations.
  5. I found $1.01 on a run. After finding City Strides, I’ve been running some new-to-me streets in Salisbury, too. I found $1.01 in change β€” my highest-ever on a run β€” when I ran in the area of the Centre at Salisbury between the Dogfish Dash and VP 5K.
  6. I had a busy volunteer weekend. The last weekend of September, I volunteered at both IRONMAN Maryland and the VP 5K.
  7. I also started another season as a Girls on the Run coach. For the second season, I’m coaching Girls on the Run with friends at the Henson Family YMCA in Salisbury.
  8. I went to yoga twice. Plus, there was another time that I took visiting travel writers to yoga at Bordeleau Vineyards & Winery and did a little yoga myself, then took photos. However, since Girls on the Run began, I’ve had very little time after work and haven’t made it to any classes β€” I miss it!
  9. I didn’t go to the gym. I don’t think I’ll be renewing this membership unless something drastically changes.

You’re probably thinking about October by now, but how was your September?

I’d also love to get to 850 Facebook likes by my birthday, Oct. 27. Feel free to give my page a like here.
