The Start of Summer
Oh hey there… long time no see! I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted, and it’s also been a hefty amount of time since I’ve regularly been running. I mean, I’ve regularly been running ONCE a week, so that’s something, right?
I will come back with a recap of the Vermont City Marathon, particularly since I’ve already written it. It was a beautiful day and course! But you already know I trained for three races over 20-26 miles in distance this winter, and at Mile 10 of this final marathon I officially felt like I just couldn’t run any longer. I finished the marathon, but with a lot of walking. I kept walking right off the course and into a lovely June off my feet and out of my Hokas. It’s funny writing this now, because I feel like I’ve taken three months off running, but the truth is it’s only been five weeks?!! I’ve been running with run club on Tuesdays and usually another small run each week as well. This past weekend, Gary and I disappeared into the trails and it felt better than ever! It’s nice to run when I want, how far I want, and to pick and choose the right weather conditions after a rather grueling winter training season.I’m ready to run though. It’s time to get going! Incidentally, it’s also about 18 weeks until marathon season……
What are your plans, goals and hopes for summer running this year?
