It seems like yesterday we were ringing in 2015 and counting down the days until the WDW Marathon.
And now, just like that, it’s October. This is the week we start decorating for fall and Halloween, and I stare at my calendar in disbelief, because so many dates are jam-packed with activities in anticipation of the holidays.
We’re in the final stretch of the year.
September has been pretty great. It started off with a holiday and a half marathon, and ended on a high note with lots of really productive runs and some very consistent and dedicated cross-training, if I do say so, myself.
Here’s how the month worked out:
- Running: 52 miles (a little lower than August, because of taper and recovery)
- Body Circuit: 6 hours
- Swimming: 200 meters (alongside little man in preparation for his triathlon)
- Cycling: ~10 miles (training with little man, and to and from body circuit)
- Races: 1 (Virginia Beach Half Marathon)
Not bad. I’ve got about two months until my goal race and I’m fairly certain that I will be looking at a lot more miles and hours, courtesy of my coaches. It hasn’t been easy, and I think I’ll be a little less discouraged when the weather cools down (I’m hoping it won’t be too much longer!)
How was your September?
What are some of your upcoming fitness goals? Are you on track to hit them?
I can’t belt it is October either. Time really does fly by. I am starting to train for my goofy challenge. January will be here before you know it again.

Goofy is going to be awesome for you!
Awesome month! I admire the six hours of boy circuit training, I could use some of that!
September was a great month for me! I am back to running 5 days a week, and I even ran my first 10 miler since my injury in May last weekend. I didn’t realize what a great running month it was for me – thanks for asking 🙂

That’s awesome, Anne! Way to go!
I wanted to beat last year’s mile (911) but I am not on track. Oh well. Will do my best to stay healthy and get close.

It’s hard when we have a goal in mind and we miss it. But we just have to keep going and trying. <3

The year really is flying by. Ugh. I’m not ready for winter. Congrats on another great fitness month!
My goal is to start running again. I have several 5K’s on the calendar that I’m already registered for, so no more excuses!

Once you pay the money, it certainly gives you added incentive to train. Can’t wait to see you start racing again!
Awesome stats for September! I say, bring on October! And..hopefully some cooler weather. I remembered how hot Vegas was but I don’t remember it lasting until the end of September.

Fingers crossed for cooler temps! It is hard to remember that winter even exists sometimes!
Great stats! I don’t know mine for September, but I don’t want to. It was not my best month! You always do such a great job fitting in workouts despite your crazy schedule.

I think we all have those months that are not so great. I am starting to get a little tired squeezing everything in, but I guess all the hard work will pay off. I hope.
