September is here and that means better weather for running is on its way. Well on its way, does not mean that it is here yet — today was 86F and over 60% humidity, so it still has some cooling to do 😉 .
I waffled from thinking about taking a day off, to doing a chase me run towards Waterville, instead, I did an easy Bennie Run and then TheWife said she was going into Kohl’s in Augusta.
She asked if I wanted to run to Augusta and even though it was warmish and muggy, I decided “a what the heck” and said sure.
A much as July was a roller coaster — August was all about becoming consistent:

When my Chiropractor basically told me back in June, he had done about as much as he could do for me and my hamstring. At that point I decided to stop playing running injury victim and started to just run during July and in August I just ran.
No, everything was not, is not 100% and in all likelihood never will be. I have accepted that in order for me to run, that there is going to be a certain amount of discomfort – so I just have to suck it up and smile.
