Every month I start this recap post out with the obligatory oh my gosh, how is it already the end of the month? I can’t believe it’s [insert name of month] already! And, I feel the same way about April/May. 

Side note, last week I went to Trivia Against Humanity (it’s Cards Against Humanity, but trivia form) and I completely failed at a goal because this was a category and I didn’t know any of the answers:

I did learn that they compared JT’s old hair to food… my guess was pineapple, but it’s actually ramen noodles. Totally can see it now.  

Anyways! Back to April. It was a pretty low-key month with most of my energy focused on getting ready for the Boston Marathon, running the Boston Marathon and recovering from the Boston Marathon.

Did someone say Boston? 😉

Earlier in the month, my sister, niece and nephew all came for a visit so we had fun adventuring around:

And my sister and I ran the Goldy’s 10 Miler together:

Even though it felt like my training has tanked due to Boston Marathon recovery, I still hit some solid miles this month:

April 2017 included 140.30 miles and some adventures! | Crazy Running Girl


With the addition of 140ish miles in April, I’m just shy of 680 miles (by .04 miles, ha!) so far this year! 



  • Set a PR in the 5k and the half marathon: Nope and nope. But I have both of these on the calendar in May, so maybe? 
  • Strength train at least two times per week: Let me just give this a D. With tapering and marathon recovery, I think I only hit the arms 3-4 times for the entire month (minus this past week, where I went twice!). 
    • January = C
    • February = C
    • March = C
    • April = D
  • Get my age of money up to 45 days: (here’s my first post about You Need a Budget (YNAB)). I got hit with a hefty tax bill (sad face) so my goal of bringing up my age of money kinda took a backseat, but it didn’t drag down my number too much…   
    • January = 15 days
    • February = 34 days 
    • March = 36 days
    • April = 31 days





This month is turning out to be a little bit crazy. This weekend, I’m headed back to Wisconsin for the weekend to run the Door County Half Marathon (in case you missed it) and celebrate my sister’s birthday. 

I also had a work trip to Vegas pop up, which also includes a 5k on the Strip!

Not at night, but it should still be fun. 

Otherwise, I’m hoping the weather finally decides to warm up (it was 40 DEGREES YESTERDAY!) so I can start spending more time outside. 


What were your favorite moments from April? What are you looking forward to in April? 

Best part of your weekend?
