Weekly Mileage: 5/26-6/1

This Last week, my intention was to up my mileage but it just didn't happen. We had a long work weekend on our feet and with my past experience when I try to add in miles before or after standing on my feet for 10-12 hours it's a recipe for injury. However, at the end of the day that can't be an excuse. I didn't plan properly and should have gotten more miles in during our days off. Each week is a clean slate, so I'll start over and properly plan to reach my goal of 40+ miles this week. 

Last week, we had some free time and enjoyed some rest and relaxation at the beach. We are staying in the Redondo Beach/Manhattan Beach area so we've been running along The Strand, watching the Blackhawks (then mourning their game 7 loss), hanging low and just preparing for more adventures this week.

Our schedule is very flexible and constantly evolving, but we received some really exciting news last week that one of our events was changed and we'll actually be heading to Colorado a week early! Casey and I can't wait to return to the state we call "home," Colorful Colorado. Plus, my mom and my brother are going to come out for a short visit to see us (just in time to celebrate my mom's 3-year anniversary of being cancer-free). 

June is shaping up to look like this: LA, Malibu/Santa Barbara/Ojai, Las Vegas (en route to Colorado), Fort Collins/Denver/Boulder/Glenwood Springs/Aspen and Tacoma/Seattle, Washington. I am smiling just writing this out. I still have to pinch myself that I'm getting paid to travel throughout my favorite part of the country with my significant other slinging a product everyone loves. This has been the BEST tour yet in our four years of #tourlife. 

Just a reminder that you can do anything you put your mind to; with great risk comes great reward. 

Anyway, before I get even more off topic here is my weekly mileage for 5/26-6/1: 

MONDAY 5/26: Rest. 

TUESDAY 5/27: 11 miles. 

Go for the Tropical Cooler.

WEDNESDAY 5/28: 5 miles. 


THURSDAY 5/29: 4 miles. 

I love running with this guy.

FRIDAY 5/30: 12 miles. 

SATURDAY 5/31: Rest. Worked the LA Wine Fest (set up + festival).

SUNDAY 6/1: Rest. Worked the LA Wine Fest (festival + breakdown). I was following the Rock 'N Roll Instagram account and checking in on runners racing at RNR San Diego. They (and Runner's World) posted about this AMAZING WOMAN, 91-year-old cancer survivor Harriette Thompson who became the second oldest marathon finisher in U.S. history and set a new age-group record with her time of 7:07:42! This woman in such an inspiration and doesn't she look INCREDIBLE? I would never guess she's in her 90s. My hat's off to you Harriette, you're an idol to all. 

TOTAL: 32 miles + 2 veggie burgers and countless smoothies. 

If you're ever in the area you have to eat at Fish Bar. As you can imagine great fish and fish tacos, but insanely delicious veggie burgers. Nom! And after a scenic run, stop by Nektar to refuel with a smoothie (our favorite is the Tropical Cooler). 

On tap for this week: We're leaving LA Wednesday for Malibu/Santa Barbara/Ojai. We've been all over the State of California in the past few years, but we've actually never been to the Santa Barbara/Malibu area so we're pumped to explore it. I am really stoked to visit the Santa Barbara Running Company's store to restock on Picky Bars and to buy more Oiselle gear see their Oiselle display. They also have a great reputation and a couple weekly group runs, so I'm thrilled to see this store and chat with their employees.
