The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 41

Well! I ran my 2nd half-marathon yesterday! Full recap tomorrow (still processing and coming off my race high) so today it's a mishmash Good.Random.Fun. as I look back on my 12 weeks of training!

This training cycle has been my best yet. I didn't need to skip a single run. Did some small schedule tweaks as trips/weather arose, but every run on the planning calendar was crushed.

I only had one bought of training fatigue and an epic run the following day helped me over that hump quickly.

This go around, I focused on the goal and really didn't worry about pace or mileage. I just ran. I saw parts of the city I haven't seen before. Saw chickens, turkeys, flamingoes, and ducks. Ran hills. Ran for donuts. Ran with friends. Tried new group runs. Ran in Boston, White Plains, and Washington D.C. I ran in the dark, in the mist, in the rain, inside, in the muggy summer heat, and in the early crisp fall temps.

In 12 weeks I covered 262 miles. All for my goal of an epic 13.1 mile race.

The last 12 weeks have been a mix of good, random, and fun runs (plus the usual why do I do this). Chasing unicorns all the way!

This is such a fun collection of your running adventures over the past 12 weeks. And if you're going to chase something it might as well be unicorns.
