September and October in Review

As I look at the date and see November 3, 2015 I realize that I never took the time to do my September in Review before October ended.  My solution to this problem?  Do a combined post for my September and October in Reviews.  It will be a bit longer than usual but at least I will have it all down in one place for future reference.

2015 Mission check-in

Mission #1: Complete 6 monthly challenges
Action Plan: Find monthly challenges online.
Action Plan: Actually complete the monthly challenge.
Mission #1 did not happen at all in September.  I made a valiant effort in October but ended up falling short of my monthly challenge as there was just too much going on in my world with work and kids!  The challenge called for climbing 340 flights of steps in a month.  I managed to complete 105 flights which is not terrible but definitely not what I was going for.

Mission #2: Cross off at least 3 more states in Deb, Nikki, and I's quest to run a 1/2 marathon in all 50 states (we have 36 states left....we best get moving...we aren't getting any younger!!)
Action Plan: Research 1/2 marathons in the states we haven't completed yet.
Action Plan: Actually register and participate in said 1/2 marathons.

So far we have completed AL, AZ, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, MI, MN, NV, OH, PA, TN, TX, and VA
Mission #2 saw the completion of state #16 in Leesburg, Virginia (still need to write a race report for that weekend) in September.  No progress on this mission was seen in October.

Mission #3: Run 1000 miles in 2015
Action Plan: Run.
Action Plan: Run some more.

Mission #3 came in at 72.44 miles in September and 77.22 miles in October (178.59 miles to go).  Still plugging along with this mission!  We shall see if I make it to 1000 miles by December 31.  Only time will tell!!

Mission #4: Complete 4 stair workouts per month (*Edited in February to read complete an occasional stair workout*)
Action Plan: Do one stair workout per week.
Mission #4 continued to be a flop in September.  See mission #1 for my progress in October.

Mission #5: Cook more and eat healthier
Action Plan: Plan ahead with recipes and food prep.
Action Plan: Utilize my crockpot more often.
Mission #5 still remains relatively consistent.


Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
