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

  1. 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!

  2. 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!
