the june 2012 running recap.

total run mileage: 83.95 miles
highest weekly run mileage: 21.01 miles
# runs: 14
# rest days: 9
# xtraining workouts: 7
favorite run: the one completed on national running day! i was so in the mood plus my legs just took off with no chance of slowing down, have to soak up every step on those days:)
 most hardcore run: my 9 miler last weekend for sure. we were in california for some family things so i took full advantage of new scenery. but only 4 hours of sleep and massive hills the entire first half was probably more then i was really ready for. my legs/whole body was screaming the rest of the day!
current reads: well my new class started again and its all about theory which equals lots of textbook reading/research. i did start the 2nd book in the fifty shades of grey series and am seriously trying to figure out any amount of time i can to finish it soon!
current shame-inducing guilty pleasure: i recently found out that the gas station right near our house has an amazing iced coffee drink. i was reserving it for days when i get gas (once a week) but it may have crept into my car a few more times than that. oops. but how can you say no to an ice mocha with 105* temps outside??
current obsession: the olympic trials! any kind diving, gymnastics, swimming, track and field. i love them!
current drink: see my shame-inducing guilty pleasure above hehe.
current song: call me maybe. not even kidding, i really love it :)
current wish-list: new work/life clothes. i had a great plan to purchase some soon and then the dentist informed me i need some work done on a crack that will take the extra fun money :/
current need: book at least our hotel for nwm. i have heard rumors things are already booked and i need to just make a decision about it already!
current triumph: signing up for my next official race!! ok, i havent officially signed up, but i am training for it. its called the et ½ marathon and it is on the extra tresstrial highway right next to area 51! they bus you up there from the hard rock hotel and you are dropped off at the “black mailbox” then run to the little alien dinner. you think im kidding…check it out.
current bane of my existence: the lack of extra fun money lol. it seems like everytime i get some and even when i try to do the responsible thing like pay off some debt something bigger comes up, like registering my car, dentist bill, etc. oh to be an adult haha.
current goal: to not dwell on the future and remember to enjoy things now! i have some really cool things coming up in the next couple months and if i don’t slow down and stop looking toward just graduation i will miss them.

current indulgence: july marks the next block of things to clean out of my diet for my race on august 4th. so that means i have been loving on my ice cream as much as possible. oh and pizza, yum.

current excitement: the 8 DAY BREAK that is coming my way from school in only 15 days!!!! they are changing the academic calendar with the start of a new school year so intsead of our usual 4 days we get 8. i don’t even know what to do with myself for that many days:)

Um... July just started! Isn't this a June recap? ;)

The ET half sounds ridiculous and AWESOME. There's an Alien 13.1 race here too, but has no ties to anything real. :)

One of my friends is doing the ET race too! It sounds pretty awesome!

The fifty shades of grey books are addicting...I read all 3 in a week haha

and I shouldn't admit this but I love Call Me Maybe too :)
