A hundred plus mile week!

There haven't been and won't be too many weeks where I would have run more than 100 miles in a week so I wanted to make a note of this week when I ran 102.3 miles in 14hours and 24 minutes and 106.6 miles in a 7 day stretch!

Oct 22-28 2018

For 7 days from Oct 23-29 2018

Total miles for October, 2018 = 366 or 82.7 miles/week.

Always feels good to make a difference to folks banking on you. Doesn’t hurt to hit your time to within 10 seconds!
