Oh August. I had set some lofty goals but I'm going to have to chalk that one up as a loss. A combination of intense traveling, a stomach bug, and lame excuses made August an epic fail.
My goals were:
What happened was:
I have accepted the fact that some months I may not reach my goals. But it's OK. Because how I perform the next month is not necessarily affected by how I performed the month before.
Yes, I would be faster and able to go further at this time if I had kicked ass in August, but failing to hit the pavement in August doesn't diminish my efforts to increase the amount of times I get out there in September. So that's always good.
To spark a little motivation, I joined LA Fitness near my house so I have an indoor track and strength machines at my disposal for an inexpensive monthly fee.

And before we go today.. just wanted to say that I was so sad to hear that Joan Rivers died. When I heard she was sick I feared this just because of her age. But you would have never guessed she was close to passing with all of her energy and feisty personality! I watch Fashion Police regularly and I admire the way she cracks totally inappropriate jokes without a second thought. I'm all for a filter and political correct-ness, but there's something to be said for complete honesty. Especially when it's hilarious.
She will be missed.
