Long run on a Friday night

Friday nights are meant for going out to dinner, having a few brews, kicking back, relaxing. Tonight, though, Friday was meant for a long run. Eight miles to be exact. And eight good miles too. I moved my long run to tonight mainly because it's the last day in July. When I added my monthly miles up the other day, I realized how close I was to breaking 70 miles for the month. I wasn't about to fall short.

With all the complaining I feel like I've been doing lately, this turned out to be a good month logging 72.3 running miles, my second best month of 2009. After a disappointing first half of the year, this is a great way to kick start the last six months.
