I am not sure why ... some people get discouraged and stop running/exercising but for me...I gave up on writing. Not the run ...oh I ran! I kept up twitter and IG...just not the blog. I think I sort felt like a bit of a failure and walked away from writing. Spent from marathon ... and all that training. I lace up and hit the trails. Literally.
So...if you missed me (I hope so) ... here is a wee update to let you know what was UP in July!
First I celebrated Canada Day with my Mom, Sister and kiddos on a Steam Train Tour! So fun!
It was a wonderful day to spend together and celebrate our nation's birthday!
Yes a REAL Steam Train
And we had a train robbery too!
I did a couple runs. Enjoyed the sun. Got some funny looks after stretching on the pathway, too!
Had a great fun 5km run - Amble With Angus. Its a super local run where100% of all proceeds went to the Calgary Food Bank. It was a great way to start the day. And, I was happy I ran into Victoria!
Then I went glamping and enjoyed an extended stay Buck Lake for a family reunion
and drank strongbow
When I got home went and enjoyed the fairgrounds at Stampede...
And ran the Stampede Half Marathon!
And yes..is that a cool medal or what??
Then finished up the month with an awesome super hilly 7.5km 5Peaks run out in Cochrane - a great morning and got to hang with Victoria, Angela, Rachel!
It really was a pretty good month! I was one busy little SOB!
