Weekly Roundup: June 30th

It is hard to believe that we are halfway through 2013!  Training is in full swing for both of us and the mileage is ramping up for some big races later this year.  We are counting down to our race weekend at Disneyland in just under 10 weeks.  The Dumbo Challenge will be such a fun pair of races! This week, the weather was not very nice, i.e. hot and humid and sometimes rainy.  We both managed to make time for some quality workouts and I even raced on Thursday night!

  2. Great job ladies! I've been really struggling for motivation to get out and run...the humidity really isn't helping either! Hopefully I'll get out of this funk soon, not much time before Dumbo and MCM!

    1. Daniele, The weather has been crummy for outdoor workouts, but we are dealing with it and fitting in our runs when we can. I can't believe Dumbo is coming up soon!
