Hospital Hill Run Half Marathon
Estes Park Half Marathon
Yes, I basically wore the same outfit in these two races. Thanks for noticing. :P
Highpoint: I really enjoyed both of my races this month, so it's hard to pick a highpoint. I pick both.
Side note of the month: I qualified for the Pikes Peak Ascent with my Estes Park Half time. Now that is all I can think about. I'm trying to convince the Jayhawk that it's another great excuse to go to Colorado. Any ideas of how I can talk him into it? My time is good for both the 2014 or 2015 race.
Not so highpoint: Hmm, it was a good month. This is a hard one. Maybe slogging through my 16 miler a few weeks ago. It just wasn't fun.
Fun read: This is a killer dream list of ultraruns from Outside magazine. I would love to do basically all of them. My top pick would probably be the Rim to Rim to Rim would because it's been on my radar for years. The Jayhawk went with the Kalalau Trail because it's his ultimate. What would be your pick from the list?
What I'm looking forward to in July: The Peachtree Road Race and Troop Trot 39k (i.e. the longest trail race I've ever run and I'm kind of nervous about it and oh, what if there are snakes on the course!). Should be a fun month.
How was your June? Anything fun coming up in July?
