July started in Portland, which was great. After that, though…
Total Mileage: 146.32 miles
Average Pace: 12:16/mile

Last Month (June 2018): 116.34 miles
Last Year (July 2017): 142.52 miles (Wait…I *beat* last year?!?)

If there’s any consolation, shortly after I left, Portland got kind of hot, too. It probably wasn’t quite as humid, though.
Best Run: July 1, 4.01 miles, 11:21/mile
I’m glad I started the month with a run in Portland, so this was a no-brainer. I suppose I could have found a workout run that wasn’t too terrible, but any run that ends with this view is tough to beat.
The clouds look slightly more ominous in that picture than they actually were. It didn’t rain at all that day.
Worst Run: July 14, 13.11 miles, 13:07/mile
Oof. I hit a wall right around 10 miles, and the last 3 miles were absolutely brutal. I survived, but it wasn’t pretty.
August isn’t exactly off to a stellar start, and I don’t see any breaks in the weather. All I can do is find a way to keep going.
