July of 2020 might have been the most states I’ve ever run in in one month. It was a busy life month as I moved from New Jersey to California.
As I mentioned last week, I’m participating in the GRIT Summer Distance Project. I signed up to run 300 miles in 30 days. Some years that wouldn’t be a “difficult” accomplishment, but I haven’t been running as much in 2019, 2020. I started last Monday. Even though it’s not a “race”, it’s something to train for, so I wanted to bring back training logs. I also have a Strava if you’re interested.
Like many people, motivation has been difficult when there aren’t any significant races on the horizon. I’ve been looking for something new to train and do. As I mentioned last Thursday, I enjoyed my previous virtual challenge. Now that it’s over, I wanted something else.
I never thought I would be a “virtual challenge” runner. It’s not that I thought virtual runs and virtual races were terrible, but they were never my cup of tea. I also never thought we would be in a pandemic. Like many people, life and routines have drastically changed in the last few months.
The June I never have? What does that even mean?
