Going In The Right Direction

I can't believe August is over; the month has just flown by.

As we roll into September, I'm getting excited for cooler temps and most of all, race season. My plan is for 5 races with the first being a 5K next Saturday, the 9/11 Heroes Run to benefit the Travis Manion Foundation, and all systems are go. I've been hard at it the last 3 months with 313 miles logged and trust in my training. PR or no PR I'm going to give it my best.

I really consider myself fortunate to live and run in AZ. Granted it's hot but if you run early in the morning or late in the afternoon, the heat is bearable. The plus is that it's pretty much proven that training in the higher temps has physiological benefits once the cooler weather comes; what doesn't kill you makes you faster.

I hope you all have remained injury free in your summer training and are ready for the fall race season as well. There are PR's and medals to be had out there, go get them.

Also, don't forget that the days are getting shorter and you want to see and be seen. Just because you can see the oncoming traffic, that doesn't mean they can see you. Click on the sidebar to get your own RUN-BRIGHT lights and reflective belt. It is a front and rear lamp worn around the waist that allows you to see your foot-fall while giving you 360 degree visibility.
