At the beginning of the summer, K and I made a list of everything she wanted to do during the summer of 2012. We kept track of all that we did. This past Tuesday, we made our way south to the Georgetown Spray Park and completed our last summer activity.

The summer of 2012 was one to remember!

I officially started training for the Richmond Marathon during the first week of June.

Since then I have run a total of 335 miles.

Aside from two major falls: one resulting in a sprained ankle and the other resulting in a major blow to my pride (nothing like falling on your face into mud and coming up a bloody mess), my training has been spectacular.

My longest run to date was an 18 miler two weekends ago. It was a fantastic run (minus the fact that on the out-and-back run I didn't go out as far as I needed to and ended up having to tack on an extra mile at the end).

In two weeks I'll do my first of three 20+ mile runs.

I'm feeling great.

I'm also surprised that I've run so many miles. I'm thankful that I'm not injured.

Here's to two more months of excellent, injury-free training...
