It's the end of June! Time for a mileage recap, which is not as fun as my other mileage recaps of 2016 have been.
June mileage total: 42.58 miles.
My last day of running this month was June 19. Even though June of 2015 was only 61.77 miles, this is the first month of 2016 where I did not surpass 2015 mileage.
Someone posted the following on Facebook today and it resonated so I am sharing here:
In some fairytale land of make believe in my mind, I keep thinking that the 5K on July 16 could still happen. I rationalize this by saying that I COULD have gone to the doctor that week (July 11-15) and I COULD have gotten clearance to run but the doc is on vacation this week so my appointment is July 19. I realize this is dumb. But a small part of me still goes there.
This morning I was in a meeting, with several doctors, and they all said, "Runners are the worst patients. They never listen to advice." Looks like I am falling into this generalization!
