I’m not a streaker. In fact, in the past, three days in a row and a total of five days a week was about the max I would ever do.
Enter July. I knew I’d have a hard time getting to 100 miles this month. I wanted to run in Alaska, but I knew the reality was that I wouldn’t run much. And I was right. I also knew that with the July heat, I’d have a hard time running longer than an hour. So, before we left for Alaska, I ran every day in July, for a total of 33 miles. While in Alaska, I ran less than 17 miles.
That left me with 11 days and a little over 50 miles to cover. I did it!!! 102.2 miles for July!
Longest run: 8.6 miles
Shortest run: 2.2 miles barefoot on the treadmill this morning
Most runs were between 4 and 6 miles in length. I even managed to get a race and a bit of speedwork in and my legs still feel pretty darn good.
I’m not sure if I’ll continue for much longer, but we’ll see.
And the Winner is Dash!
I asked Shoo to choose a number between 1 and 18 and he chose 29 LOL. I then recited the numbers for him and he chose 10, so Ms. Dash, send me an email at mom2shoo at gmail.com and I’ll get your new opener to you.
Thank you to everyone who participated. I’ll be giving away a pair of Wrightsock running socks soon.
Not too late to join the virtual run – 45 participants so far. Woot!! I’ll post a list later this week of everyone who has signed up.
