Feliz cinco de mayo mi gente! Wish I could say I ran 5 miles today in honor of the festive holiday, but instead I ran 4.25. Close enough? Wish I could also say I had an icy margarita but alas that didn't happen either. I did make tacos, homemade tortilla chips, and some guacamole.
It's been a hot minute (Ryan hates when I say that) so I thought I would check in. Last month I had given myself a goal of running 85 miles. Every day I would tally up my mileage on dailymile to see how many more miles I had left to run. By the end of the month I found myself in Florida on a vacation with my family.
I rarely get the chance to run with Ryan so I jumped at the opportunity to get an early morning run done with him while my parents watched the boys. We finished a little over 3.5 miles in the muggiest, most humid weather.
My total for April ended up being 89.15 miles! Each month since the start of the year I have managed to run a little more than the previous month. I have a goal for May in my mind but don't want to jinx myself ... every time I find myself on a roll with running I injure myself or catch a cold.
Ideally I would love to hit 1000 miles for 2016. I've tried to hit that total in the past but have been sidetracked by a baby, a broken wrist, another baby ... you get it. Fingers crossed nothing comes up in the next 7 months!
