Today begins a new month. September 1st has actually has been a common date I’ve learned that I’ve “restarted” a few times over the last few years. Last year, this was the date I moved to my current home in Winter Garden. It’s been my best move since my time in College Park almost 4 years ago. I am blessed to live in my current place, and I thank God for that.
Last month, August was pretty good. It had its ups and downs like most months, but overall, I have to say it ended well. One thing that stands out is that I gave up energy drinks three weeks ago this past Saturday. My runs have improved because of it. I don’t get those strange heart palpitations or shortness of breath feelings like I had been anymore. What it hasn’t changed is my energy levels overall. I attribute that to my Fibromyalgia. Some days are better than others with it.
As I write this blog post, Hurricane Dorian is still lurking. It has hit the Bahamas, and still has it’s eye on Florida. While the storm has shifted for my state, it’s still quite powerful. The news has reported it struck the Bahamas as a Category 5 storm. That is scary. Praying for the Bahamas and for us as it continues its track north.
This month, my goal is to ramp up my running mileage for the Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon on October 26th. Also, I have signed up for a local 10k, the Global Energy Race here in Orlando. Otherwise, it’s all about half marathon training and staying strong.
What goals do you have this month?
