Heat Wave in NJ

June has come and gone. I can't believe it's July 1st. Still have 2 glorious months of summer. We have been spending a lot of time on the beach and at the pool. It's been quite the heat wave here in NJ. Some seriously bad stuff has happened here along with it. A huge water main broke and almost a whole county has a boil water advisory. Thank goodness we weren't a part of that. Then South Jersey got a huge surprise pop up severe thunder/lightning storm a couple nights ago. Lots of damage. Plus the saddest story I read was a 2 and 7 year old cousins were killed when a tree landed on the tent they were camping out with their family. So heartbreaking. The storm wasn't even predicted.

I feel like I have been working out non-stop. For the month of June I filled over 80 miles of running, biking and swimming. The most milage this year! I ran 32.5 miles, biked 45.3 miles and swam 2.45 miles. I am falling in love with swimming laps! And today I kicked off July with an official start to my Marine Corps Marathon training with running 8 HOT miles this morning. It was 80degrees by 9am. Whew. But, I am so grateful for the fantastic group of women that I train with.  If it wasn't for a few of them I'd never get out and do it.

Looking forward to the rest of summer!! Off to the beach tomorrow! My big guy has Jr. Guard. I can't believe he is going to be 8 years old in less than 3 weeks!!

Awesome way to start your training off. Thank you so much for your comment; they do mean a lot as I am sure you well know. :P I'll be checking out the other blog you recommended as well. I ran a half Ironman last May as a chunky chick... it was rough, it was hot, it was long, it took 7 hours, and I was dead last - but I finished. Always remember, you CAN do whatever you set your mind to. Best wishes!
