Weekly Wrap – July Rewind

And just like that another month comes to a close! As always, I’m joining Holly & Tricia for the Weekly Wrap – just wrapping up the whole month. When you’re done here, please visit these two great ladies and all of the other bloggers linking up.


Good things for the month:

  • Kicked off training for RnR Philly! On the whole I’m really happy with how things are going and to see the mileage building.
  • Family running – especially seeing my youngest son complete his first 5K! It’s also been great to have my husband keeping me company on my long runs.
  • Rocking the strength training!
  • On the non-fitness side of things – it’s been a fun month of catching up with friends!

Things I could do without:

  • Mother Nature’s relentless hot flashes!
  • The flare up in my left tibia head and anterior tibialis – it slowed me down for a couple of days, but I’m feeling like I’ve got a handle on it now.

On the decks for August:

  • Double-digit LSDs – time to return to the land of double digit long runs. It’s been a long time since I’ve lived in this neighborhood.
  • A couple of mini vacations! My husband is taking me away for my birthday this weekend and the whole family is getting a few days away later in the month.

Tell me something good about your July.




  1. I’m so glad your running is going well! LOL on Mother Nature’s hot flashes — so true! Happy Birthday – how sweet of your husband to plan a getaway – sounds like it will be great.

  2. I agree, I could definitely have done without Mother Nature’s hot flashes! The mini get aways in August sound like a nice break 🙂

  3. I’m not going to complain about the heat even though it is wreaking havoc with my runs! I still prefer it to winter.

    • I must admit Wendy I’m starting to really favor winter running over the humidity and heat! (Of course remind me in January that I said this!)

  4. Happy Birthday Michelle! I hope you enjoy your trip this weekend. Mother Nature has blessed me with irritability. I think I’m used to the hot flashes at this point. 🙁 Good luck with your double digit runs. August is the perfect month for those (not!). Thanks for linking.

  5. I miss my family running with me. I know this heat deters many but I’m going to be back on them to start back come the Fall. I too am happy for now with lower miles and heavier weights. I’m seeing progress inside the gym.
    Oh how fun a birthday get away! I can’t wait to see where yall go! Enjoy it Michelle!

  6. I hope you had a great birthday weekend! This Saturday I’ll be having my first double-digit run since June so I’m a little nervous! I’m looking forward to RNR Philly – are you doing VIP?
