Getting the Cold Running Clothes Out of Mothballs

September receded into the scrotum-shrinking breeze with a brisk three-miler last night. Northeast Ohio offered its first frost warning of the new season, which meant I had to bundle up for my run with a long-sleeve technical shirt, my ultra-light windbreaker, and shorts.

Here is September's statistical rundown:
  • Total Miles: 137 miles (20 runs)
  • Highest Weekly: 43 miles
  • Average Weekly: 32 miles
  • Average Pace: 9:16.57 per mile
  • Longest/Fastest Run: 26.2 miles, 9:21 pace
  • The Monthly Dif: -29 miles (166 miles in August)
This month featured two races, the Buckeye Half Marathon and the Akron Marathon, which you may have already heard about. September was a good month, but now it is over. Welcome October, ye of no planned races and holiday of mass consumption. I like you already. Cheers!

Oktoberfest, football, comfort food, and scrotum-shrinking breezes. Gotta love the fall.

So happy I don't have to worry about shrinking scrotums.
