And Where Have You Been?

It's July 1!
Please believe me when I say my lack of posting doesn't indicate my lack of doing! In reality, I've been pretty busy lately (just not busy blogging; actually instead of writing on the blog, I've just been reading others' blogs).
So what's been up?
I signed up for some challenge back in May to commit to run at least 1 mile daily between Memorial Day and the 4th of July. Success! Well, maybe I should hold my tongue until Thursday comes.
Here's what my June looked like:

Since I posted last, I did run a 5k but obvi didn't blog about it or even add it to my race list.
The Cresson Heritage Days 5k (remember this was my 1st 5k ever back in 2010?) was on May 19. I ended up scoring a 2nd place finish with a 26:30 run time! I was thrilled with that because, after coming off of the long 1/2M training, speed was definitely not my thing. In addition, still carrying around the extra weight I can't seem to shed.
F-A-S-T    F-O-R-W-A-R-D to today:
It's July 2nd. That means the annual 4th of July race in Altoona is coming up in 2 days.
1st off - I'm running the 5k this year. Last year's 15k debacle reassured me that this year I'm sticking with the 5k!
Do I have goals for this race? Well yes and no. I did list this race as a PR goal for this year. So:
A Goal:  sub 27:09
B Goal: 27:09
C Goal: sub 28:00
So there ya have it!

In other news, I am most of the way through a 'Squat Challenge.' Today I have 80 squats to do, tomorrow 50, and Thursday (yes on the 4th of July) 150!!!
Better get squatin'!
Thanks for reading!
