June 2013 in Review

OK, seriously? What just happened. How can this be the last Friday in June? Summer just seems like it’s getting started but before you know it’ll be September. Wahhhhhh! Time needs to slow down right now. I don’t like it when summer moves at warp speed.

In keeping with my monthly tradition, here are some of my favorite posts from June.

Life After 26.2 Miles

Vermont City Marathon - happyfitmama.com

In case you were wondering, there really is life after 26.2 miles. I had a really hard time dealing with a lot of emotions after VCM. Rather than jump back into running with a vengeance, I decided to let my body rest three weeks with no running. It gave me time to do other workouts and just regroup.

Except When You Don’t. Because Sometimes You Won’t.

One of my goals for the Under Armour What’s Beautiful Challenge was to finish my my first marathon under 4 hours. Well, that didn’t happen. I had a hard time feeling proud of myself for just finishing the race. I learned that sometimes you won’t be successful. It happens to all of us.

Sweet Summer Sweat Workout

Downward Facing Dog - happyfitmama.comEven though I took three weeks off from running, I was still getting my sweat on. This Sweet Summer Sweat Workout doesn’t require any equipment and can be done anywhere. I’ve actually done it a few times in our backyard while the kids were playing. Fit it in when you can, right?

Old School Blogging

I love doing blogging survey’s like this! It gives me a chance to share a little more about me with all of you. Plus I can dig through old pictures and reminisce.

I Ran

Reunited and it feels so good! After three weeks off from running, I got back to my love. It’s not pretty and it’s not what it used to be but I’m happy to be back on my feet again.

My babies turned THREE! It’s hard to believe that they were once that small. Now they’re little people who love to have conversations about everything and anything. “Let’s talk about…” I can’t even remember what life was like before them. Well, I do remember being able to use the bathroom by myself. 🙂

What was a highlight in June for you?

  1. I can’t believe this month is already coming to an end! You had a great month with so much going on, inspiring how you keep up with it all!

    I guess my highlight of June would be doing my first triathlon, and simply just training harder and stronger for my first 70.3.

  2. It’s hard to believe that the fourth is next week! Summer is going so fast.

    I think it’s a great idea to take some time off from running after a big race. Welcome back!

  3. Oh those beautiful babies!!!!

    June went by crazy fast but a highlight would be our family vacation filled with beaches, workouts, relaxing and making memories! Why can’t summer last all year?!
    Ohhhh except for our Texas heat….I’d prefer a bit cooler temps, today was 104!

  4. June has flown by and I’m afraid that July is going to pass even quicker!!
    I’m glad that you are back to running – hopefully it is feeling good for you again!!!
