I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy 4th and hope that everyone celebrates independence day in a responsible manner.
Anyway, today was an exciting run day because it was my semi-long run day and while I was running down the street I saw a police car escorting 3 gentleman who appeared to be racing one another. Well I kept up with them for a little bit and the next thing I know I see a finish line! Crazy, I didn’t even mean to race today, but I saw a finish line. I obviously didn’t run through the finish line, but it was kind of awkward to see a crowd of supporters cheering people on, when I wasn’t even in a race! After some research it was 5K that was to support one of our fallen soldiers.
Finally, it’s the end of the streak and I did it! I ran at least a mile every day from Memorial Day to the 4th of July! It was a tough month, but I did it! I even upped my mileage. I’m trying to get in about 40-45 miles a week now and my long run (as of last week) was at 15 miles! It’s becoming tougher with only a few water bottles, but I’m doing it. How are your runs going? Any summer goals?
