Last Run for May

I normally take Mondays off, but I knew I wouldn't have time to run tonight* so I headed out yesterday evening after work. With a case of the Monday blahs, I wasn't really feeling up to it so I decided to visit a new (to me) trail for a nice change of scenery. It was peaceful and refreshing, just what I needed to knock out a nice 10K run. (and I wasn't dragging my feet like I have been lately!)


I tried to snap a post-run pic a la Tonia - it's harder than you would think to get the right angle! This was take 12.


That wraps up May's mileage at 118 (190 KM). Definitely on the low side, but that's to be expected with marathon taper and recovery. And that 118 miles includes one sweet marathon so it was definitely a great month!

Bring on June!

*This evening I'm volunteering with some girlfriends at Olga's Boys Night Out - an all-male race with all-female volunteers! It should be a fun time and the perfect opportunity to debut my cheetah skirt.

Great month! No awesome month, a marathon and big miles!

The race sounds fun! Oh to see the day when I can race and volunteer! Kids do eventually grow up right? (J/K) ;-)

Nothing like a new running route to give you a bit of spark.

Meg said...

Ah, so fun! I want to come to your Boy's Night out...I love watching men run, especially my husband! Have fun, take pic of your cute skirt!

ajh said...

There are a fair amount of all women races around but I have never seen an all male race. Seems only fair. Have fun volunteering!

Anne said...

I was just thinking about trying to find new running route not too far from home :)
Hope you had fun volunteering.

Amy said...

Looks like a pretty GREAT May to me - especially with that sweet marathon!!

Sounds like a fun event to be volunteering at!!

yumke said...

That's pretty good mileage still. I was wondering how you followed up a month of 200 miles. I'm at around 130 last month. No sweat, it's a long year.

Hey, on the side i wonder if you're interested in helping me out get the word to running bloggers. As u probably know, my day job is editor of globeandmail.com and my colleagues in the Life section are developing a marathon summer training program/coverage/series. We're trying to get in contact with run bloggers across the country to share favourite runs, etc.. If you're interested you can email me (kyum at globeandmail.com)

Lisa said...

Can't wait to hear about "Boys Night Out!" novel idea. I have heard of all-women events but never all-men.
