Last Run for May

I normally take Mondays off, but I knew I wouldn’t have time to run tonight* so I headed out yesterday evening after work. With a case of the Monday blahs, I wasn’t really feeling up to it so I decided to visit a new (to me) trail for a nice change of scenery. It was peaceful and refreshing, just what I needed to knock out a nice 10K run. (and I wasn’t dragging my feet like I have been lately!)

I tried to snap a post-run pic a la Tonia – it’s harder than you would think to get the right angle! This was take 12.

That wraps up May’s mileage at 118 (190 KM). Definitely on the low side, but that’s to be expected with marathon taper and recovery. And that 118 miles includes one sweet marathon so it was definitely a great month!

Bring on June!

*This evening I’m volunteering with some girlfriends at Olga’s Boys Night Out – an all-male race with all-female volunteers! It should be a fun time and the perfect opportunity to debut my cheetah skirt.
