Along My Run | 5 - The Rest of June

I'm back on the prairie, and think this June exhibited a wider gamut of weather conditions - we've had beautifully cool temperatures, torrential rains, fog, and the typical heat and humidity. I tried to remember past years' June weather, then realized I hadn't run much the past two Junes due to injuries.

The Rest of June's Runs
1. Sunday Morning Walk - Run , 2. Every Run Is A Gift , 3. Let The Rain Come Down Make A Brand New Ground , 4. The Trail Imparts A Different Mood Even Tho I've Run It a Hundred Times , 5. Don't Pass Up The Beauty Along The Road of Life , 6. Out in the Country #rural, 7. Post Run selfie, 8. Welcome to Summer , 9. The Woods are Lovely Dark and Deep, but I have Miles to Go Before I Sleep - Robert Frost , 10. Hazy Shade of Summer, 11. Two Pairs #ducks , 12. Reflect on The Day Ahead #run

Stats from June: I logged 112 miles with an overall average pace of 9:10 minute / mile.

I've officially started the 16 week training program that culminates in October's Chicago Marathon. The good - I've got enough of a base that I could really "skip" the first two weeks. The bad - I'm currently nursing a bit of Achilles soreness in my left ankle, so I need to rest up a bit (super hard for me to do). Hopefully, I'll stave off any injuries, as I am targeting a 4:00 marathon this time around. With the right training and race day conditions, I believe it's achievable.

Some running / inspirational quotes I've come across recently:
Believe that you can run farther or faster. Believe that you're young enough, old enough, strong enough, and so on to accomplish everything you want to do. Don't let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself. - John Bingham

Now bid me run, and I will strive will things impossible. - William Shakespeare

The obsession with running is really an obsession with the potential for more and more life. - George Sheehan



Running isn't the only activity that can draw the best out of you - anything you are passionate about will do the same. I hope you let those things you love guide you forward.
