Best Race: I ran two races - a 5k and a 10k in March. I am most proud of my 10k race. After running that race, I truly felt that I could PR the half marathon I ran on Sunday.
Biggest Surprise: I ran 194 miles. This is my highest mileage month by 20 miles. In March, I ran:
- 1 20-mile training run
- 2 19-mile training runs
- 7 runs that were 8-12 miles long
Play lists Made on iTunes: 3, one for each race I have recently run. I have started to race with music, something I never used to do. It provides a nice distraction.
Best Part of the Month: My vacation to California. It was not only much-needed, but also incredibly enjoyable and stress-free. I did get my 20 mile run accomplished while there, which I think is incredibly successful.
New Discovery of the Month: I like oranges. I never liked oranges growing up, but bought one recently because it just looked good. And it was. I've been eating oranges like crazy lately. I think I'm just making up for lost time. Orange juice, though, I'll never be able to drink.
Best Thing Purchased this Month: A new laptop computer. I got a Mac Book Pro, and love it. I'm still figuring some things out on it, but the transition has gone well thus far.
March Madness: My brackets were awful. I had Missouri going to the Final Four, which obviously did not happen. I did, however, pick Ohio State to get there, but had them in the championship game. I did enjoy watching the tournament this year.
Goodbye March. You were a good month. April, you started off rough but can only improve.
