With this past weekend being what many consider “the start of summer,” I thought I would share some photos. First off, let’s start with the Runner’s World #RWRunStreak… Memorial Day was the first day of the Summer Challenge to run (at least) a mile a day from Memorial Day to Independence Day. I saw a lot of messages and mentions of people taking on the challenge. Good luck to everyone.

Next up, it was my birthday on Sunday. Thank you to everyone that sent me messages, it was very nice of all of you. I want to send out a special thank you to Kierston for sending me this. How awesome is she? Thanks K. It was FU-mazing!

The past few years, I have attempted to run my age, which usually means signing up for a 50k… this year, I did the opposite. I took the entire weekend off. That’s right. 4 days of NO running… shocker, I know. Instead I got to enjoy some family time!

And as is tradition, we celebrate Mika’s birthday on Memorial Day. She was born some time during May and since my birthday always falls around Memorial Day, we celebrate hers as well. She gets to enjoy her own personal cookie and ice cream, both made for dogs. She turned 8 this year and she will forever be my puppy.


The “birthday girl.” Like her hat?
