The August fun-run marathon is in the books. After a DNF last week, I tagged along with my buddy John to the mountains to up the ante. This was the hardest run that I've done. I was more fatigued during July's marathon due to a lack of proper preparation and the overall heat at the end, but this little climb through the Smokies definitely takes the cake for my personal most epic run.

Between John's watch and my phone, the run was between 27 and 29 miles. I'm thinking his watch (27 and change) is more accurate. Either way, August is in the books! Icing on the cake: cooling off in the stream at the end, I found these wicked cool shades:
