I cut my 13 miles short because my ankle and hip decided I wasn’t supposed to go that far today. That’s ok. I’ll still hit my 100 miles for June which was my ultimate goal anyway. Planning on getting the rest of my miles for the month on Tuesday and then I’ll have my 100! It’s hot out there kids, be safe!(1 comments)See this image largerMy 6 mile run this morning earned me the 100 mile badge from Garmin. I reached my goal of 100 miles for June!
