Goal update, August 2014
August is ending and so again I’ve summarized my progress on my 2014 goals. August was a good month for me. My little sister got married, I hit my 600 mile running goal, and I finally got below 200 pounds. I also brewed a batch of beer and bottled another. And I plan to bottle one more batch before the weekend is over. I packed a lot in.
With four months to go I am confident I’ll make my cycling goal before year’s end. I’m doubtful make my weight goal, but I’m thrilled with my recent progress. I noticed that I hit 104 miles running in both July and August. Fun, but I beat last month by three tenths of a mile. So there.

|Running||600 miles||104 miles||653 miles||109%|
|Cycling||1,000 miles||130 miles||671 miles||67%|

Hi, I’m Steve Block. I’m an Iowan, but have lived in Denver since 2007.
I write, take pictures, run, and ride my bike when I can. Most of my writing is in a journal, though the best ideas find their way here. My photography is a long ongoing hobby, and I have photographs on 500px and Flickr along with a smaller photo portfolio at ev-15. I started running last November, where I have progessed to regular 10k distances. For 2014 I set some nice goals for both running and cycling, and plan to issue regular progress updates. I brew beer pretty regularly too, and started developing my own recipes last fall.
I’m reliving the past, in a way, over at retro focus.
