Monday Madness

There really isn't any madness about my day.  My calendar page is blank.  Wide open.  There is just so much to do post vacation.  While we have done a lot to unpack and get back to home life, there is still so much to do.  The laundry pile is INSANE and continually living in this home just makes a mess upon a mess. 

Not to mention what I want to get done with my blog here.  I know you all were just beside yourself  while I was gone.  Wondering how you'd survive your week without me.  Haha.  Ok, so not true, but that is ok.  I thought of you all.  I made a vlog post each day and will post one each day.  Let me clarify that it is ok if you don't care about what I have to say want to watch my videos.  I understand that they are not for everyone.

Anyway, so much to do + a lot to blog about = plenty of madness for this fine Monday morning.  I will tell you about my vacation through out the week.  Probably best to spread it out, otherwise it will be one looooong post.  I will sum it up by saying that the week was completely AWESOME!

I want to do a monthly recap for June.  Mostly because it was a great running month for me.  After having run 10 miles in the month of May (those only came from Memorial day - end of month) I was able to come back and run 93 miles in the month of June.  It has been my best month so far this year.  Yay!  I am so excited!  My longest run was only 8 miles.  I was just able to get out there every day (on day 36 of streaking) and get solid, consistant miles in.  I also added in swimming & biking, but I don't count/keep track of those miles.  My yearly total for 2012 is 386 (ish because sometimes my ipod didn't work, etc) miles.  Not bad considering I've had close to 2 months of not running at all due to injury.

Hopefully this streak will continue.  I have my 8 hour Howl at the Moon Ultra in 38 days.  The heat has been kicking in and preparing me for that day.  I still do a lot of my runs in the early morning hours, but even that is not a guarantee break from the heat and gazillion percent humidity.  I purposely sprinkle in some afternoon runs to help prepare me for my race as well.

I will leave you with my vlog post from last Monday.  It's a little windy.  Actually it is very windy, but had turned the camera to block a chunk of the wind.  You can still hear me, although a tad tough at times.  What is so neat (to me) about this video is that I made it right before heading to evening chapel.  I talk about my friend Joy in this video.  When I went into chapel the speaker mentioned Joy and it was (unbeknownst to me) on that exact day 1 year ago that Joy had her first headache.  Not just any headache, mind you.  For those that don't know her headaches were actually brain cancer that would take her life 6 month later.

Have a great Monday everyone!
