    I ran 5 and walked 2.5 yesterday. I had some pain in my lower right leg, front, right above the ankle. I decided to stop there and give it some rest. Feels a lot better this morning, but I will probably hold off running for a day or two and so a short walk or just strength training.

    @Teresa502 Yeah for getting the HM done in those conditions. It was brutal yesterday morning. Love your pictures. Lovely ladies getting it done!

    @katharmonic Yeah for meeting your goals and for taking it a little easy the last couple of days. Rest is important.

    @martaindale I wondered where you have been. Glad you are still running. This thread can be a little overwhelming at times. But, I love all the people here and they are so supportive.

    Congrats to all who met their August goals and to those who struggled, but kept going anyway.

    I got my medal for my Flora-Bama virtual and the swag for my 2020 Liberty Road Challenge.
    Nice swag! Congratulations on all your hard and relentless work on those challenges.

    My progress on the Space Race 400K so far is 79.664 miles (out of 284.5) Arrgh! I thought for sure that I had it at 80 even. This will end my August unless the brutal heat index lets up and I walk at lunch time. See you in September!

    @wandavaughn I'm doing the Space Race too, I'm at 62 miles. If it makes you feel better it's only 248.5 not 284.5 miles :smiley: almost 80 is great for 2 weeks.

    @mbaker566 Sounds like a really nice run in a lovely park. I hope you get to go back.

    Got 5 miles running and a walk on trails this morning. First 5 miles without a walk break since injury, fingers crossed! Icing my knee just in case.

    Soooooo humid. 81 dewpoint.

    While I was running a falling pecan hit me right in the nose! Ouch! Husband says, “Well it’s not a surprise, if you rolled a die like in d&d or something your nose would have the largest percentage chance devoted to it...” hardy har har. Fortunately I know he likes my big nose.

    Right after we finished I looked like I had just jumped in a swimming pool! This is a quick dry tech shirt!
    Back at the car, covered in salt and bugs. So many bugs. So many. I needed windshield wipers for my sunglasses.

    I read falling pelican the first time😯

    Hahaha Now THAT would be a story! :wink:
