Recap of the Month of May

The month of May went really well for me. I ran my first road half marathon, and I had my farthest run ever. It is a very exciting time in my running because I have been injury free and have been setting multiple best's in running distance and time. I have also been doing really well in my cross training with lots of swimming and some mountain bike and stationary bike mixed in. Here are some stats for the month of May.

May Stats

Total Miles - 101 miles
Longest Run - 15.9 miles
Total Time - 19:38:35 (hrs: mins: secs)
Elevation Gain - 9,343 ft.

May Races

May 4th - OC Half Marathon (recap)

Official Time: 1:58:46
Overall Place: 1872 out of 10389
Age Group Place: 216 out of 650
My May stats are all records for me. I have a lot of momentum going right now and have lots of personal bests to create and amazing races to run. I have finally created a short list of possible choices to pop my marathon cherry this fall. I should have one picked out by the end of June. It is going to be epic!
June Plans
I have the Holcomb Valley Trail 15 mile race this Sunday. It is going to be a tough race for me and will be the longest race I have attempted yet. Other than that, I have my birthday coming up on the 18th and my family and I will be going on vacation for a week. So I believe June will be another great month for me.
Stat Total for the Year

 Total Miles - 370.7
Longest Run - 15.9 miles
Total Time - 64:10:15 (hrs: mins: secs)
Elevation Gain - 27,969 ft.
Tell me one great thing that happened for you during May.


  1. What an incredible month of running for you! Great job on keeping up the cross-training. That's always a hard one for me, but I try to remind myself that being injury-free is worth it. Wishing you a happy June! :)

    1. Thank you Hailey. It is always hard for me to consistently do cross-training, I would rather spend my free time running. lol.

  2. Great month!! So excited to hear what your marathon might be! I used to be really on top of cross training and I kinda fell of the wagon lately. I think next training cycle I need to really amp that back up - it makes a HUGE difference!

    1. Thank you. It is hard finding enough time to fit everything in during the day as it is without cross-training. I am really making an effort to keep it going though.

  3. You're killing it lately; great job! Where are you headed on vacation?

    1. We are going to rent an R.V. and cruise along Highway 1 on the coast. Our vacation can't come soon enough! lol

  4. Very curious to hear what you pick for your first marathon. Sounds like June is going to be a great month for you! Happy Birthday (and vacation)!
