Monthly Recap! July 2017

Posted August 7, 2017 by Wendy in recap / 1 Comment

I can’t believe it’s August already! The summer is flying by but I’m in denial because I love summer and I want it to last forever!

Favorite Things in July:

We went on an overnight backpacking camping trip! It was a lot of fun with beautiful weather! You’d be surprised how much a 20 lb pack starts to weigh on you three hours into hiking though… Ha! Packed just the essentials but of course I stashed my kindle 😀

I ran my half marathon at the beginning of July! It was my second half marathon, I also ran the See Jane Run half marathon last year! I was really excited because I cut about a minute off my average pace from last year! Next goal: run a half below two hours! I’m not sure if I can do that but hey, that’s why we set goals right? To work hard toward them! (I mean, I’m not gonna lie, that last mile or two of the half I was definitely thinking “WHY DID I DO THIS” but afterward it is 100% worth it! Runners are totally a little crazy.
