June Running Recap

June… is in the books. The year is halfway over, where did it go! In June, I took a fabulous vacation to Colorado with the hubs, it set my running back a bit as I didn’t run for 10 days.


I made some running goals for the year in January and it’s time to check in to see how I’m progressing on them.

Goal:  Run 1,000 miles in 2016. I’m still little off track – I’m 42% of the way there with 50% of the year gone. I only got in 37.5 miles in June and I am very disappointed with that number. I know the number will rise as I begin training for my 4th half-marathon later this month and so I’m not not stressing out too much about hitting my goal number. I think I got this.

Goal:  Run 4 Half Marathons in 2016.  I’ve ran 3 so far – 1. Jail Break Run, 2. Run Like A Diva, 3. Running With The Cows.  I am signed up for the Houston Half at the end of October.

Goal: Register for and start training for the 2017 Houston Marathon.  I’m registered.  Training will begin in late September.

    I’ve heard great things about the Houston Marathon and I’d love to come down and run it one year.

    Great job on your goals so far! My June wasn’t as much mileage as I planned but I’m looking forward to changing things in July!

    Thanks for linking up with Angela and I! 42% out of 50% isn’t so bad! Training for your marathon should bump you right up.
