October 2011 Recap

October was an amazing month. I had 2 great marathon+ long runs and 2 race PRs. I ran 129 miles! That is most I've ever run in 1 month and 27 more than last month. That puts me at 735 total for the year so far, and with 2 months to go I've already exceeded my 2011 goal. I wonder if I can make it to 900 :)

NaBloPoMo 2011November is going to be just as awesome because it is marathon month! I'm beyond excited! I am officially on taper, so I'll be taking it easy for the next 4 weeks. I'll probably go a little nuts, but I'm happy 3 am wake up calls are behind me ... for now :) I have a half marathon in 2 weeks, which I'll use as a tune up race to practice my marathon race pace (which will still be a half marathon PR for me), so that will give me something to obsess over in the meantime :)

I'm once again going to blog every day this month as I did during the previous taper because it was a great way to keep me distracted, give me a venue to let out the crazy, and document the process. So if you have burning questions for me or topics you'd like to see me address this month, please comment and help distract me :)
