July was not a high mileage month, but I am okay with the miles I ran. July running recap in three sentences: We were on vacation for ten days and I managed to exercise on four of them. I started training for my next half marathon. I ran 75.6 miles.
What does August have in store for me? Higher mileage (I'm only assuming), different shoes, lots of time at the pool, company, and doing a lot of relaxing. What better way to start the month than with a run?!
