Monsoon Season and 300 Miles

This morning I finally hit 300 miles for the year, a total of 14.2 miles for the week. I know a lot of my hardcore running friends hit 300 miles a long time ago, but for me it’s quite an achievement. I’m still a bit behind on my goal of averaging 50 miles/month for the year, though, so I’m hoping that for the second half of the year I can pick it up a little and spend less time dealing with injury.

This morning’s 5K run was really a delight. Running in monsoon season can be both frustrating and fun… The endless days of 100+ degree weather are a bummer, especially on days like Tuesday when you wake up and it’s already 85 degrees. But on a day like today, it’s an unexpected surprise to get to sleep in (until 5:30AM, ha ha) and wake up to reasonable temps, cloudy skies, and a light cooling rain. The animal kingdom was out enjoying the morning, too, and nothing quite makes my day like seeing the happy little quails out running along the dirt road. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
