Will Run for Beer, Part Two

Somehow I missed the memo about National Running Day and I didn’t run yesterday.  My excuse: With the last day of school festivities, there was simply no time for running.  Not to worry, though!  I celebrated the National Running Day a day late by running 6 miles this morning at sunrise. 



Unfortunately, my time was TERRIBLE! 

Time: 58:11

Pace: 9:42


My excuse: I ate too many McDonald french fries and Sonic root beer floats.  I did not miss the memo about $2.49 Happy Meals and free Sonic root beer floats, which are definitely not running food.


Being a total slacker, I also missed the memo about the Juneathon, which is this pact where you work out every day for the month of June.  With a Moms of the Go beach weekend planned at the end of the month, I could certainly use a little motivation to tone up my tummy before stepping onto the beach in a bikini.  So, starting tomorrow, I in!


Tomorrow, I plan to run 3 miles and swim 16 laps before my DH leaves for work.  It’s a good plan, right?  Well, we’ll see.  I’m heading out to a local beer garden for a much-needed moms night out this evening and hopefully, I won’t consume too much beer to hinder my tri training in the morning.  The up-side: I will have trained for the beer drinking portion of next Friday’s tap house 5K.

  1. WooHoo! Enjoy the Mom’s night out.
    I have a personal pact with myself to work out each day this month. I’ll have to check out the Juneathon.
