Whoa. Typing that I just realized that HALF the year is OVER. How did that happen?! Seems like I'm going to blink, and it will be 2015. There are still quite a few things we want to do this year, so we'll probably need to really start kicking it up a notch.
But not to get down about the things still left to do this year, here are a few highlights from June.
The most exciting thing I did was fly back to MN to surprise my niece at her graduation party. I still can't believe she's 18 already.
Jeff and I went hiking on Mt Charleston,
started training for Jeff's first Half Marathon,
and walked a 5k. The Sprinkler Sprint.
Oh, yeah, and I announced my birthday celebration challenge. JOIN ME!!
I also tried iced tea for the first time. And stevia. I'm sold on both.
And the winner of the Summer Fit Kit giveaway is ... Jill Conyers!
So. Yeah. It was a pretty fantastic month!!
Halfway through the year? Let's check in on those 2014 goals.
Fitness goals - Run Faster and Train Harder
It was a pretty good month for training harder, but not so much with the running faster. It's been H-O-T here! Plus Jeff and I started training for the half together, and since it's his first half, there really hasn't been much time for speed work.
I'm happy to report that after quite a bit of work in June, I saw growth across all my social channels and with my blog readership. Yay!
- I actually wrote a Monday Listicles. 10 Plans for Summer.
- And one Tuesday's Tip, too. 5 Ways to Beat the Heat.
- Two Fitness Friday posts - Staying Fit While Traveling, ETC Streaks
- Five Sunday for What's for Dinner/Week-in-Review posts!! Sweet. :)
Goals with Jeff
Run a Triathlon. Still haven't signed up for anything, but we have started swimming a bit as cross training for our half marathon plan.
Read 3 books together. I'm thinking this is going to be a wintertime thing. Or maybe fall.
New in 2014. We tried a new (to us) restaurant. I Love Burgers. It was delicious!
Enriching Activities. We checked off another Outdoor Activity this month when we went hiking Bristlecone Loop.
