Last month I wrote that I expected July to be my highest mileage month, and it probably will be. But I was pleasantly surprised to run nearly as many miles in August. I have been back at school now for two weeks, and as I expected, fatigue is having an impact on my distance and speed.
On the other hand, I am still enjoying the self-imposed discipline of this streak. I am not any thinner, and I'm not much faster than a month ago, but I am stronger, both physically and mentally, than I have been in a long time. I love that I am running into 50, and by the grace of God, I'll be able to continue my streak for another six months (at least).
