Eagerly Awaiting Cooler Weather

This summer has simply been BRUTAL. June was cool, July was rainy, then July and August came out of nowhere with EXTREME heat and humidity.

I ran the NYRR NYC Half-Marathon last weekend, which was fun - but was a grueling experience with the heat and humidity. I just did another 13.55 mile training run yesterday - and I feel like my legs are perpetually heavy.

I'm just looking forward to the cooler weather that September brings, so that I can start increasing my distances in preparation for the marathon(s). I should find out whether or not I've been accepted as an Achilles guide for the NYC Marathon in the next few weeks - so I'll know what the fall training plans will be.

Until then, I'll just keep getting out there, slogging through the miles, and putting in the time.
