July Rewind ...

Thanks to the magic of auto-post, I am off rocking Chicago while you read this. So here it is. My recap of July 2010 ...

Miles Planned/Miles Ran: 166/168.95 (an all-time monthly mileage record)

Rest Days Planned/Taken: 9/8

Highest Mileage Week: 7/12-7/18 - 41 miles

Long Runs Planned/Completed: 4/4

Donuts Earned: 120.31 (my favorite statistic on DailyMile)

Current Book: I am finally catching up with the rest of the world and reading the Twilight series. I am currently making my way through Eclipse and am planning on reading Breaking Dawn during the travel portion of my trip to Seattle to visit Mel next month.

Current Shame Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Teen Mom. I hate that show, yet I CANNOT STOP WATCHING. I know, it's pathetic.

Current Colors: Lime, White and Black

Current Drink: Lots and lots of water. It's too hot for anything else.

Current Song: If we ever meet again - Timbaland and Katy Perry. LOVE IT.

Current Triumph: I recently launched my coaching business. You can check it out HERE or 'like' me on Facebook HERE. Or if you really wanted to support me and do a little advertising while you are at it, you can buy a logo tee HERE. Lots of fun stuff. There might just be a TMB Endurance Training giveaway in the near future ...

Current Bane of My Existence: All these early morning runs. Now don't get me wrong, I do appreciate being done with my run by 7 a.m., but I really miss my sleep. I am literally counting down the days until school starts again and I can run at a more reasonable hour.

Current Goal: Finish my marathon training in one piece. My first two marathon training cycles left me injured. But third time's the charm, right?

Current Blessing: Life. Things seem to have a way of working themselves out and I am so grateful for that.

Current Excitement: Well, obviously launching TMB Endurance Training. And my upcoming trip to Seattle. And MCM Mama's virtual race (I'm in for the 40K). And the thought of runs that start after the sun rises ...

You've had an amazing month. Getting those miles in, starting your business and being a mom is quite the juggle.

Wicked month! And that is really cool that you get to go visit Mel in a bit. Maybe you should plan a get together of all the local bloggers so we can meet some of our "idols". Oooh, how stalkerish did that sound? But, seriously, only if you have the time. It would just be cool to put actual personalities to typed words. Either way, have a fun trip and can't wait to hear about Chicago!

Teen Mom is the most addicting show ever! When it's on, I can't help but watch it. I know exactly how you feel!
