-My running is still inconsistent. I have no real focus or goal right now. I had thought about running a fall marathon if my summer running went well but I quickly abandoned that thought. I’ve opted not to run another marathon or seriously train for any race until I am completely finished with graduate school. I’ve been running about 30 miles per week and not stressing myself over mileage, pace, or racing.
-In July I was able to speak to high school kids at a Nike cross-country camp. This was the highlight of my summer so far. Everything I am doing right now was influenced by a speaker at a cross-country camp I attended in high school. This was a very cyclical experience.
-We celebrated Junior’s arrival day. He’s been our cat for 7 years!!
-My business cards arrived!
-Phil’s family came to visit and we rafted, toured a cave and castle, rode a roller coaster & biked through the caverns
-4th of July was a huge let down for me because I LOVE fireworks and they were canceled. We had a wildfire on a local mountain range and a fire ban was placed on our county. The fireworks were canceled.
-We drove through Independence Pass and then spent some time in Leadville for the cross-country camp
