Run the Year Motto:  EVERY day’s a run day, 2017 miles in 2017


June 2017 update:  FAIL.  While I maintained both run streaks, the month was a miss.  Ran light after Ash’s wedding, tapered the week before Bighorn – running no more than 2 miles/day.  Bighorn FAIL, followed by another week of short miles.  Summitting Mt Elbert [my first 14er of 2017] helped right the mental, ease my loss.  Reality: 50 miles, maybe too far too soon.

Positive?  Posted my first sub-4 finish since March 2015 at REVEL Rockies in Morrison.


July focus (June do-over):  HYDRATION

As temps heat up this summer, gotta solve the riddle.  Hydration & nutrition – my marathon nemeses.  Consciously increasing raw vegetable & fruit intake all summer.  ‘Tis the season, local foods available, time to focus/commit.

BIG supporter of local Boulder business – LOVE LOVE my Newtons (third year, same core brand).  However, gonna mix up hydration this summer (been using Skratch Labs).  No set solution, sampling Tailwind & Crank Sports’ e-Fuel next month.


Race ReCap:  REVEL Rockies, not a PR but under 4 hours – Chip Time: 3:58:25.66

Streaks:  189 consecutive run days, 43 months marathoning

Mileage ReCap:  missed the month, ended June at 1,209 miles (still 200 miles ahead of 2017 goal)
