And just like that, half the year is over! I seriously don’t know how that happened; it feels like we were just ringing in 2017 and talking about how fast 2016 went. 

June was a crazy busy month with a lot of fun adventures…

My mileage was a little bit lower this month than others with marathon + marathon recovery (I have a weird leg injury I’m trying to work through that has meant a longer break from running than I usually take post-marathon). 

Recapping my June 2017 | Crazy Running Girl


With this month, I’m at 928.43 miles for the entire year!



  • Set a PR in the 5k and the half marathon: Since I was so focused on Grandma’s Marathon, I didn’t have these races on the calendar. But! My goal is to run a 5k in July and a half in August (maybe I can do better than getting a new-old PR like I did at Door County Marathon).  
  • Strength train at least two times per week: I was doing really well on this but fell apart after the marathon… ready to get back on this train in July! 
    • January = C
    • February = C
    • March = C
    • April = D
    • May = B+
    • June = C
  • Get my age of money up to 45 days: I definitely went backwards with my AOM this month… let’s hope the second half of the year has a better trajectory. 😉 (here’s my first post about You Need a Budget (YNAB)). If you are interested in YNAB, use my link and you can get a free month!   
    • January = 15 days
    • February = 34 days 
    • March = 36 days
    • April = 31 days
    • May = 26 days
    • June = 12 days





I have zero races on the calendar in July… BUT, I do start ultra training! In case you missed it, I talk about it a little bit here

Compared to last month, it’s pretty low key –> looking forward to enjoying time outside and in Minnesota! 


How was your June? What are you looking forward to in July?
