Weekly Roundup 5.30-6.5 & 6.6-6.12

I’ve only run four times in the 2 weeks since the Buffalo Half Marathon.  On the drive back from Buffalo, I went back and forth from “Should I try to sign up for a June half marathon since I’m in PR shape?” to “I am just going to take a few weeks off to let my injury heal and recharge” and then “Oh shoot, I have to get ready for the Runner’s World Classic in July!”

Well, finding a half marathon for a second shot at a PR attempt didn’t happen mostly due to the lack of Saturday races in June.  In the meantime, I was enjoying the lack of training plan freedom and being lazy with my pup—who happened to be injured and wounded and resting right with me.

Other highlights:

·      June 1st was Global Running Day!  The goal is to get moving and inspire others.  I hope you all did your part.
·      June 3rd was National Donut Day!  I hope you all did your part on this day as well…
·      I made my own Pumpkin Granola Bars!  I was so proud of myself.  Here’s the recipe:
·      My cousins Melissa and Michele signed up for another half marathon!  The Buffalo Half Marathon was Melissa’s first while Michele ran Houston & Buffalo.  I’m so happy and proud of those girls.  They are hooked—running is contagious!
·      Running Buddy sent me a new Buddy Pouch!  When I got home from Buffalo I remembered that my Buddy Pouch fell in a porta potty after the Buffalo Marathon so I tweeted about it.  (I didn’t try to retrieve it.)  Running Buddy reached out, asked for my address, and a few days later… I had a brand new Buddy Pouch!

Upcoming events:

·      5 weeks until the Runner’s World Classic!
