We had to be at the Denver airport to fly home by 4am. This pic sums it up.
Speaking of the airport, I posted a crazy mural from their baggage claim HERE. You guys directed me to some super fun conspiracy theories about the Denver airport. If you love conspiracy theories, you MUST read more about the Denver airport!
I was happy to find my favorite Umpqua Oats for breakfast! Food and coffee made the early flight a lot better.
When we got home, we unpacked, picked up a smoothie, and I hit the gym for a recovery run.
Track Tuesday: Time trials are fun…said no on ever.
We kicked off the Fleet Feet Summer Speed Sessions with a 1 mile time trial.
I went into this time trial with zero expectations. Actually, I was amazed that I even felt up to attempting it. I ran a 6:29. Not my fastest time, but I’m super proud considering it was 3 days post-50k.
Also, I knew I was back in TN when I saw the morning humidity…eek!!
I went to Juice Bar for a Cocoa Banana Smoothie and I had a free one on my account…always a good day when that happens!
And, then I went for a much needed post-race/time trial sports massage with Robin Frazier at Franklin Massage Center.
For dinner I made Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower…yum!!! Recipe coming soon.
Woke up to this….married life for the win.
I posted my North Fork 50 Race Recap! Click HERE to read it if you haven’t already, or if you just really want to read it again. 😉
I wanted to do a nice and easy, FLAT run. My sweet friends obliged and we got together for a great morning run.
Jenn baked rhubarb bars and brought me a couple. They were SO good and perfect with a big mug of coffee!!
Another month is in the books! I loved this months training for North Fork. I felt strong, injury free, and really relaxed for every run.
June Miles: 344
How was your June training?
What’s your next race? Is it a goal race or a “just for fun” race? My next race is the Cumberland Plateau Stage Race. It’s a weekend of trail running with friends and we’re running it for fun.
What’s your favorite smoothie flavor? I used to always get green smoothies, but lately I’ve been on a chocolate kick!
