August totals

It's September. That means this marathon is NEXT MONTH.

Here's August in workouts. I am still proud of my consistency. My big highlights are my first 20 miler, plus 2 more long runs at sub 9 min/mile pace. I'm pretty happy, although I'm also fairly sure Boston is not in the cards for this year, unless I suddenly grow wings. It could happen! Considering I was running 30 mile weeks this time last year, I am at least pretty much guaranteed a marathon PR (I know I am jinxing myself so hard by saying this).

Un-highlights: I ran into the garage with the bikes on top of my car, so this is what our roof rack looks like (bikes are ok, more on that in another post). 
So glad the roof rack gave way instead of the bikes...
