October was my big half marathon month. When I think back over the last 10 months I was really preparing to run a half marathon. It took me a few months to decide on which one I would do but once I committed and signed up, I was excited and then nervous!
Total Mileage: 85km
Total Runs: 10 Doesn’t really sound like much! Ran outside and on the treadmill.
Race: 2 Valley Harvest Half Marathon and BLT 5K Fun Run
Longest Run: 21.33 km
Soccer Games: 2 (Let’s just call these speed work)
Yearly Total: 932 km
I’m pretty happy with the amount of running I did in October. Even with taking 6 days off after my half marathon, I still managed a good number. I’m almost at my yearly goal of 1000 km and starting to wonder what I should aim for next year. I honestly didn’t think I would hit 1000 km in a year …. two months to go!

Sounds like a wonderful month!!!! My month has been a little off, but hope to get back at it this month!!
I have no complaints! You”ll get back on track, I’m sure 🙂
omg, you are soooo close to 1000, incredible!!!
Getting there! I should actually keep track as to when I actually run the 1000th kilometer 🙂
Yes you should!
Love that you completed your goals! Great mileage too.
Thanks. Some months I don’t get them but October was pretty good!
Great job on your goal, that’s awesome! My goal for this year was 750 miles but the last few months have been a little rough. Have a great November!
Awesome job ticking off those goals! My last race of the season happens tomorrow at the lucky 7 relay. I’m actually looking forward to some much needed down time. 🙂
Thanks! Good luck tomorrow at the Lucky 7! The weather isn’t looking great. Hopefully you guys will have a blast! You deserve some down time 🙂
Looks like a pretty successful month. Congrats!
You had an awesome October and are so close to 1000k! My mileage goal for the year is 1000 miles. I’m on track, but now that marathon training is over I’m not sure I can keep my numbers up.
I love the photo of the leaves and the sneaks 🙂
