September Goals and Highlights
We're officially on the tailend of summer. In some ways I feel like a kid on summer vacation-moving to a new state (especially one that I've dreamed of living in for a lot of my life) still hasn't really sunk in and feels temporary. I think once the weather cools down, the leaves change, and the heat has to be turned on it might finally sink in that this is home. And now- we're one step closer!
August was a really fun and busy month, filled with tons of events and spending time with new friends. It's really hard to pick just one highlight, since every day seemed to bring a new adventure. Visiting Winston Salem and going to my first tennis tournament in two and a half years was definitely one of the best moments of the year for me! It was my first live sporting event since the pandemic started (my last one was actually a Caveliers game right before the world started to shut down), and even though things were very different, it almost felt normal.
Let's take a look at how my annual mileage goal is going-
2021 Combined Miles
So far, I've done a total of 1,339 miles, and have 682 to go. I had a much better month and am still ahead of schedule so things are looking good - just need an average of 170 miles each month with a quarter of the year to go!
Visit all the Parks in Apex
I finished this off pretty early in the month and wrote up a post about all of the parks in Apex. I loved this challenge because it got me to explore a lot more, and I discovered some really great parks- hidden gems like Seagrove Farms Neighborhood Park as well as fun running routes like the Kelly Park - Jaycee Park greenway.
