Goodbye August.... Hello September

Where or where did August go? Even though it went by fast, it was full of fun and then some good workouts as well...

Here is the month in review....
    • SWIM - 12700 meters ....... 10000 meters in July
    • BIKE - 70.64 miles ............. 77.86 miles in July
    • RUN - 20.55 miles .............. 23 miles in July
Not exactly what I would have "liked" to have accomplished in one month, but given the following factors, I am okay with this...
  • 2 weddings
  • a weekend in the cities
  • preparing for the new school year
  • starting the new school year
  • adjusting to a morning workout routine
... what can you do? life happens! September should be better, especially now that the pool is open again!

I will post more later about the wedding this weekend!

Happy Labor Day, y'all!

Time is just slipping by, hopefully we will have a long and sunny fall!

There's still lots of cycling time left in the season, hop on and start spinning....

I know, August was a whirl-wind! I don't know where it went either. September marks the start of marathon training for me though so I'm SUPER excited.

Good luck w/ school. Happy Labor Day.
