June Running

June brought terrible weather (we had record amounts of rain) and a few pretty adventurous runs.  One took me through a few inches of rapidly moving water on Nautilus Ave. and some interesting hops through puddles on other days.  I’ve enjoyed the warmer weather in the last week or two because the sun feels nice in the early evening and warmer conditions push me to run harder and faster.

For the month I averaged about 7.5 minutes per mile.  My two best times were somewhere in the middle of the month.  Afterwards, I actually went up a lot for two consecutive runs and then back down.  I ended the month with my best mile time of the year.

Since school has gotten out, I seem to keep running past students of mine who are walking somewhere or another.  I’ve had my name screamed out of moving cars three times since the beginning of June.
