I am so sorry this is late. I think I’ve avoided it because I’m mad at myself for how little running I did in September. Between a crazy return to work and an injury, my mileage is the lowest it has been all year:(
At the start of the year I was having a tough time getting out the door for runs as I had no goal. I had already done a speed goal and a distance goal and now I didn’t know what to do. Then the awesome Kathy suggested I run to visit her in South Dakota. Well there I went.
Last month I had just made it to the outskirts of Alberton, Montana, 933 kilometers from home.
This month I have made it to a tiny lake just before the Rock Creek Airport in Clinton, Montana.
This area was named for General Sit Henry Clinton and boasts just over 1,000 people at this time. I don’t know why this map route only takes me through small towns. A runner would be way less noticeable in a bigger city, but I suppose the air quality is better out here.
I can see that there is a quite modern looking building at the airport and it has a patio! I have just five more kilometers to run and then hopefully I can stop there and have a cold drink!
In 2017, this area had a small plane crash which killed two people. The plane appears to have been trying to land, but crashed into trees beside I90 due to engine failure . I really hope I am not standing anywhere near where that happened!
Well, I had better keep going as I would like to make it much further this month than I did last!
Have fun! AJ

You might just be running through Bozeman when we are there for Girl #1’s dissertation defense!! It will be November 13. How fun is that?!
Oh that will be cool!! That is awesome she’s defending her paper!
Soon she will be Dr. Emily!
My close friend is Dr. Anna
You are making progress with every step you take.
I hope so! I was just so upset about my low September mileage. I’m hoping October is better!
Very much enjoying your reports on your run to Rapid City 🙂 This really is a neat way to motivate yourself!
It is as it gets me out the door quite often!
Don’t beat yourself up – September was a hard month for you and you kept on going! I love your virtual route – I am working my way from Land’s End to John O’Groats at the moment and am almost the closest I will get to home right now!
Oh that is neat! I have seen a lot of virtual running to places lately
Don’t be so hard on yourself. You had a lot going on in September. It is hard to have a productive workout when your head isn’t in the game, and trying to exercise when tired is a recipe for injury. You’ll make up for it in October, for sure. Just keep an eye on the sky for any falling objects!
Lol I am definitely trying to be more organized so I get out for a run when I can! I will keep my eyes open!
Don’t be so hard on yourself girl😉 I love seeing these updates!
I felt so bad!
I know what you mean, but sometimes things are just unavoidablen
Yup and I am trying to be way better this month!
