A Walking Dude and Monthly Mileage

So, I've mentioned Caleb took his first steps a few weeks ago, and I briefly referred to him as walking in yesterday's post, but since it's pretty big time DUDE stuff, I figured I should devote a moment to noting his progress:

He's wobbly, for sure, and still crawling the majority of the time (that's the locomotion he knows; right now, walking is just a novelty), but he's making big "strides."  In another few weeks, I bet he's proficient, and he'll be toddling all over the place.  Lord save me.

So, while he spent July perfecting the art of this new business we keep getting all excited about, I spent the month streaking.  31 days of running.  132 total miles.  My highest monthly mileage so far this year.  I plan to continue on with the streak for awhile now; although, I don't have a definitive plan for it.  Right now, I'm just streakin' till I can't streak no more!

And, of course, I'm working toward that 50 mile week I have planned.  This week, 40 miles are the goal, and so far I'm track with two 6 milers in the books on Monday and Tuesday (one was entirely on the treadmill -- I think I deserve gold stars for having the mental fortitude to endure that hour's tedium), and I plan to execute today's 6 miler this evening.  So far, so good!

I came here to enact revenge for that pussy comment, but that seems really inappropriate for this post. I hope that boy's running by tomorrow. Cheers!

Go Caleb! It's crazy how fast these milestones go. Mason couldn't even stand up 2 weeks ago and now he's up everywhere!

As for streaking-I am speechless. I think the only thing I streak at is drinking.

I know how much you hate the treadmill so I hope you made yourself a nice yellow cupcake to celebrate. That's a milestone all by itself!

WooHooo to Caleb! Those are some big milesstones.

Great job on the month run streak. Who knows where this is lead you to. Believe you just never know.

Right now as I haven't gotten my run in for today, T-storm are brewing in the distance, hubbs is out until 8; I am wishing for the boredom of a treadmill! Off to stalk the weather situation.

Go caleb!! And you! Good thing you are doing all that running, because it looks like now you have a toddler to chase around. That should count as mileage, I think.

Awesome milestone! And great job on the streak. I could never do that. Well, I shouldn't say "never," but really....

That is fantastic. Once they start walking you have to start chasing them, and that's not always fun. But it's so adorable to see them start all wobly like that! so cute.
