What I've been up to and I'm a winner!

I won my first give-a-way!  Thanks to Detroit Runner, I won a sample of Gu Brew.  I am a loyal Hammer Heed drinker and won't touch Gatorade, but I have heard great things about Gu Brew.  I've been using heed for most of my longer runs (10-13 miles).  I look forward to testing out the Gu Brew on my 10-12 mile run this weekend.  And for those who do not follow Detroit Runner, you need to!  You can check out his blog here.  Thanks again Jeff!

My race schedule has been bare since the marathon and will remain that way until the Red Eye Relay July 23rd & 24th.  Being the obsessive runner that I am, I can not just sit back and do nothing.  I must have goals.  I must be training.  So I challenged for myself for the month of June... run everyday.  It's now the 27th of June and I have ran 27 days straight with last week topping out at 52 miles for the week.  I am also doing mid-week double digit runs (usually around 10 miles on Wednesdays) and have started running with a small group 3-4 mornings per week.  I will take July 1st off as a rest day after completing my challenge but will dive right back in on the 2nd.  Then I plan on adding 2 two-a-day work outs to get ready for the relay.  I already have a bunch of goals and challenges for myself for the rest of the year including making August a 200 mile month. 

So that is what I have been up to.  No races, but still running... a lot! 


  1. Awesome job on running everyday! That's tough to do without a break. I'm sure some days you really felt like you needed it. I can relate to needing something to drive you - great idea to keep you busy and focused!

  2. Thanks for the shout out. I hope you like it!!! Oh, I can't do that no resting thing but more power to you!

  3. Great job! Every day in June - what dedication! Enjoy July 1st off :)
