During the first week of June, I committed to run 40 miles in June. Marta had the great idea for this challenge and a ton of people posted their mileage on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and their blogs. I use Daily Mile to track all of my mileage for running. I checked my account today and saw that I did 92 miles in May. Holy crap!!
On the 17th of June, I hit my 40 miles in June, but kept going. I knew that we were going camping the last week of the month, so I had to get my mileage in. We did a ton of hikes while camping, plus I walked to the village for wifi, quite a few times. At the end of June, I logged in 63 miles total. Several of June’s miles were ran with Angry Kid riding his bike alongside me.
I’m still running. It is super hard to find time to run during the summer with all of our activities going on, and then you also add in the heat! I’m waiting longer and longer at night. Sometimes, I run at 8pm or so, because it has finally cooled down. I ran around 9:30am this morning because it was super overcast. I was quite thankful for that.
Committing to my run regime has taken over a large chunk of my spare time. Laundry is piling up, emails are overflowing, and my house is not as tidy, but I really don’t care. Choosing my own path, and following my running goals is also setting a good and healthy example for my family. Plus, I have another random topic to talk about.
Do you want to go the distance?
45 miles in July! Are you with me?
I’ve already done 10 miles so far.
I swear I haven’t turned into a super running freak. I am slow. Like turtle slow. I also need to start making To-Do lists. Like really bad!
