Happy National Running Day! If you are like me, your Facebook & Twitter feeds are blowing up with reminders of what today is. I know many of us “pledged” our miles a long time ago (or so it seems), and hopefully we were all able to follow through!
I took two days off to recover from Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon, but was back at it yesterday and today. The weather was beautiful both days – very little humidity and cooler! Still in the 80s, but after this weekend, it feels amazing. I may have mentioned it before, but I have a gym/recreation membership through Mason so that if the urge strikes, I can get my miles in at lunchtime and still have a place to shower (well, & for cross-training purposes, but I’ve used it mostly as a place to shower lately). It’s so nice to get those miles in earlier in the day & be done with it, especially since I am in summer classes now. I know this will be impossible during the majority of the summer when it will just be too hot and humid to do anything outdoors, but for now, I will enjoy! I hope you get some happy miles in, too!
May’s total mileage count was 102 miles. I think January was the last time I actually broke 100, so it was sort of exciting to see that. I know those numbers are only going to start going up, up, up starting in July – yikes!
