It is really already July? Unbelievable. Half of 2011 is gone. I'm sad about that. Time just goes by too damn fast.
Miles ran: 81
Long runs: 2 - (10 miles, 10)
Highest mileage week: 22
Favorite run: The six-miler that was the first half of my brick (run-bike). I stretched my run to six miles, was anticipating the bike ride the whole time.
Most hardcore run: The Camp Pendleton Mud Run!
Race(s): Set a monster PR at Fontana Days Half (1:48:34); ran the Camp Pendleton Mud Run for the fourth consecutive year.
Current Reads: I really need to read me some books more often.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Playing with my iPhone. It's seriously an awesome piece of technology.
Current Obsessions: I've been keep track of my calories like crazy for the last couple of weeks (thank you, My Fitness Pal app). It's really helped me get ahold of my food intake and take control of what I eat.
Current Drink: Water, especially now that the temperatures are in the 90s and 100s.
Current Song: The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash
Current Wish List: A babysitter, so I can get my runs in early in the mornings. Prime running time is wasted because I can't leave the girls alone and I don't want to wake them up early so I can run. The babysitter can get here at 6 a.m. and leave at 8, and the girls would be asleep for most of that time. How easy of a gig is that?
Current Need: A new holder for my iPhone. I've been just holding it during runs and that's getting old.
Current Triumph: I finally was able to get all of my music from my external hard drive onto my Mac. Yes, I've had the Mac for more than a year and I never really needed to get the music but since I got my iPhone, I needed to get it onto the Mac in order to put it on my iPhone, so that was finally the impetus for change.
Current Bane of my Existence: My wrist. It doesn't hurt a ton anymore and I don't wear the brace but every now and then I'll get a shot of pain on the outside of my right wrist :(
Current Goal: To get in 3-4 runs a week. I've found it difficult to squeeze in runs this summer, more than I thought.
Current Indulgence: I love to drink coffee, even now when the temperatures are soaring.
Current Blessings: My girls, Kennedy and Yvie.
Current Excitement: Our annual summer family vacay is coming up. I might actually get to enjoy most of it since I won't have to work too much during the trip. Holler.
