July is always a little bit lighter in mileage than other months because I go on vacation for the 4th of July (usually, and I did this year -- I SWEAR there's a trip report coming). This July looks almost like a carbon copy of last July! I did manage to PR yesterday at this year's Hadassah 8K (I will write a race report for this, too!).
Training for the New York City Marathon is going well - my group will be doing our 18 mile training run next Saturday. As the schedule looks now, we are expected to do training runs up to 26 miles, which will be a first for me. Running the full marathon distance is suggested in Jeff Galloway's training schedules, but up to now I've only ever completed 23 miles in training. We'll see what happens, my group is supposed to have a pow wow on it during our next run.
In other news, I have been biking this summer as well. There isn't much to say about it, though. Most of my rides are the same - 11 miles on the NCR trail. I turn around just before Mile Marker 6, at my "favorite spot on the trail".

Happy August! Can you believe it's August already? Where is this year going?!
