Insert huge sigh *here*. Yes, that’s right a sigh, and I think you know why because every time the new month rolls around I scratch my head and think “where the hell is this year going?” I’m serious, it’s flying by in the blink of an eye.
When I first started this goal back at the start of the year I never imagined where running would take me. I’ve had some great runs, and I feel very lucky. One thing for sure I know I have the 1000km in 2013 goal in the bag. You may say a bit confident, but you know what smashing goals happen when you prepare yourself and you know what to expect. I now know that for next year I might have to up the ante, but we’ll see.
September brought the end of the 2013 SAAC Running Season 🙁 . I still have to write about the last race, which I will do eventually.
September also brought a much-needed holiday, so I got to run in places I have never been before. Which was quite fun. I also had a misadventure on one of my runs. Only I could fall into a sinking sand pit.

The road looked solid, but alas it wasn’t. So I got a bit dirty. Oh well, it was a good Tough Mudder training run. One thing for sure, I’m a runner, just dusting myself off and carrying on with my run.
It also brought a mini goal I had for myself. That goal was to run 100km in September. Which I achieved. Just.
The Numbers by Month
January – 83.7km
February – 89.3km
March – 110.14km
April – 113.41km
May – 79.93km
June – 106.40km
July – 93.64km
August – 87.13km
September – 100.34km
Total – 836.99km
To Go – 136.01km
When we break that down it is the following:
45.33km a month
10.53km a week
Which really isn’t that much.
I haven’t set a km goal for October, but I would like to get at least 3 long (and by long I mean over 60mins) runs in.
We shall see what October awaits me.

I know right? I thought Sept just started? Anyway, so proud of you on smashing your 1000km goal! You’re amazing and awesome and you may say an avg of 10.5km a week isn’t much but it’s more then most ppl do, plus you make it look good 😀 Keep it up girl!
You had me laughing at your comment about falling into a sand pit:) Love it!
Glad you had a good time running in new places! Hope you had a lot of great holiday adventures (outside of sand pits:)
This year really has gone by fast, I’m glad for that (injury wise) but it’s crazy how fast time flies at times! You’ve got some awesome numbers for this year, great successes!!!
Don’t worry Kristy I was laughing at myself. Only me would find a sinking sand pit hole.
Glad you’re not offended I laughed. If it makes you feel better, I ran smack into a pole once while running. I was having such a great time on the run and was totally in my own little world in my mind I didn’t even see a pole on a corner of a street as I made my turn:) ahhh the fun stories we get because we are runners:)
Not offended at all.
I haven’t ran into a pole yet, but knowing me, that will happen one day.
