Running: Finish running the 100 miles in 2 months challenge. Translation: Run 25 miles in 8 days and push yourself to run 3-4 miles a day in the 100 degree weather.
Blogging: Write up to 12 posts in the month of August. Translation: Plan on staying up late to finish writing some posts.

Now for the results:
Running: ...umm, yeah that didn't happen. I was close, so close! I had finally made it to 95 miles last friday. When Saturday rolled around, I felt weak and sore; and honestly way too tired to run 5 miles. After a goodnight's sleep and some breakfast, I completed the challenge Sunday morning with flying colors by hitting 100.5 miles. This goal was a real challenge, but I learned how much my body can handle.
Blogging: I did it! In case you didn't notice, I actually hit 14 posts all together. I really enjoyed writing more posts and it's definitely something I'd like to keep up with. It's not always ideal staying up late to finish a post before the next day, but planning ahead has helped. Now that I have my trusty planner, I can set aside time for specific posts and juggle my other activities.
