May Rewind

I’m convinced that May went by quicker than April, which was pretty hard to  beat. May seemed to be more stressful than the other months this year, and I felt like I was always on the go. The good thing about May being over is that summer is almost here!

Let’s take a look at the numbers for this past month.

Miles run: 46

Races run: 2 (Flying Pig Half Marathon & Medina Half Marathon)

Books read: Started Once A Runner

Places traveled: 2, Cincy/Kentucky & Put-In-Bay, but no crazy trips

Unnecessary purchases cut down: Nope

New recipes: Tried a new pasta, Ohio City Pasta is superb to cook with

Miles were down in May, but this was a result of my big failure race at Flying Pig. After the hills I swore off running for a few days, but was back at it to get redemption at the Medina Half Marathon. And redemption I got! I shaved 24 minutes off my time from Flying Pig and finally got out of my half marathon timing funk. Just in time too, marathon training starts next Monday!

I didn’t do much traveling, which is why I’m still not getting anywhere with reading books for fun. I definitely want to make this a priority this month. But I am looking forward to reading Once a Runner, I’m hoping it will help keep up motivation with training.

One of my favorite things this month was the Medina Farmers Market. Every saturday from 9-1, Memorial Day until Labor Day, the farmers market is out on the square. It’s such a great event and really allows you to buy local. I picked up some Ohio City Pasta and have enjoyed cooking with it. I’ll be shopping at the market a lot this summer.

June will be busy, so I imagine it will go by even quicker, but I’m excited for summer to finally be here!


Did you do anything exciting in May? What are you plans for June?
