100 Miles x TWO!

Me trying to capture a running selfie! :) 

This month I accomplished another 100 miles!  The 2nd month in a row!  June clocked at 101.29 miles to be exact!  In May I ran an extra one mile to achieve the milestone month! I couldn't be happier! I'm not sure where the obsession of getting 100 miles or more each month came from but it sure is fun to try and do and it keeps me accountable for my workouts!

Confession Tuesday:  I used to hate running.  I used to look at runners and think "How can they do this?" The girls that I run with everyday have been faithful runners for YEARS... I used to think that they were CRAZY!!  How could anyone WANT to get up at 4:45 am to workout.... let alone run?

Well... I'm that girl.  5AM is my time.  It's really the only time I can run guilt free and there are still mornings that I worry the kids will be destroying the house when I get home at 6AM.  Running makes me feel alive!  I see beautiful sunrises and get caught up on my girlie chit-chat... that is when I'm not sucking wind or swallowing my early morning breakfast of bug omelets!

Today I tried to take a running selfie to document my achievements!  It's pretty good I think, although the quality could be better! :)  My mailbox served as my "hand."  I'm loving the way running is sculpting my legs because lord knows with the way I eat, my abs aren't anywhere to be found. :)

Have you achieved any milestones for running?  Do you have a certain about of mileage you strive for every month?

  1. Great job! I have a loose goal of running 100 miles every month...it's not so hard if you think about it! I love that you are getting up early to get it done. And love your action shot! Keep it up.
