May and June were extremely stressful months for me. Running was not a priority even though I ran some races. Sadly, the races I ran have almost been forgotten about. During May and June I was frantically trying to finish my thesis so that I could finally graduate. Finishing my thesis was the ONLY thing I was completely focused on. May and June were a blur. I spent time running and doing other things but I don’t really remember much. I’d never want to go back and do those months again. It’s been rough. There were a lot of runs I quit or didn’t start in May and June, it happens sometimes. I’ve moved on. I’m moving forward more focused because I have more time to dedicate to training again (finally)!!
In early May my Altra Red Team gear kit arrived, Junior liked it as much as I did! I ran at Snowmass Village 2x, once with our Ragnar team and once with Lyndsey and Josh when they were here visiting. In June Running Club celebrated our 1 year anniversary. I was also winning a 5k in June and then I got lost…..another story for another day. We ran Ragnar in June and I was less than happy the entire time. It was either hot as hell or as cold as the arctic, there was not one moment of a comfortable temperature and I was complaining a lot due to pure misery. I don’t remember Ragnar being like that when I did it last year, granted it was in a completely different location.
Toward the end of June I FINALLY finished graduate school and Phil and I went to Europe, where we did some international runs.
I got a new pair of Altra Torins! The new knit ones!
-Assistant Coach Junior helps make training plans now too!
-While in Europe I drank a lot of coffee and cappuccino! I was even lucky enough to find a pumpkin spice latte in June!!
Now that I am done graduate school I plan to spend more time blogging, running, and coaching. It’s been a really long journey but I finally made it to the other side and I am excited to see what happens next!
