I completely forgot to run yesterday. No free days left so I'm out. Do I have to wait until the end of this game to start another game?

Running in a heat index of 110. I'm sure many of you feel this pain.

Two weeks of triathlon training and these runs will help speed up my run times. Working hard on building my base. This is my second RunBet. The last one was to get back into running. So now to build speed...

Ran yesterday outside (.67 mi) still figuring out the app so it didn't count. Today ran on treadmill (.75 mi) hit the wrong button on the treadmill and erased it lol. Third times a charm! First run in the books!
