I got a notice for an auto renewal for my blog domain and thought, “Hey I’m paying for this blog maybe I should write a post.
It has been a minute since my last one and guess what?!
I got married on July 15th!!
I planned the wedding in 4 months. I didn’t want to wait an entire year. It was just the best, best day! So much fun and the weather was perfect (82 degrees in July!)
Here is another one I love-
As far as my running, things have been just okay. My goal up to my wedding was simple- STAY HEALTHY! I didn’t not want to risk an injury and not be able to run. Being active on a daily basis is so much more important to me than race results.
That being said, I did do a 5K summer series with a group of friends. While my results were sub par, the fun was not. It was the same race route for 5 weeks straight and ended with food and drinks. What’s not to like?
For now, I have to face the fact that I am just not as fast as I once was. And that is just fine. I have been much slower than I am now but I ran higher mileage. I have also been significantly faster than I am now.
I think a good goal for the time being is to stay consistent and slowly increase (10% rule) my weekly mileage. I have a half marathon in Bar Harbor, Maine on October 15th. It runs through Acadia National Park and is a bucket list half for sure! I ran 8 miles today to start out my weekly long runs and my foot only bothered me a tiny bit.
