                        1)  Complete my knee rehab and be officially cleared for all activity

                        2)  Top my June milege (173 miles)

                        3)  Reach the HM distance on a run or two

                        4)  Keep adding speedwork

                        Without going into too much detail, I'll just say I went above and beyond any expectations I had and met all my goals with reckless abandon.




                            1. Not get too derailed during my vacation.



                            Last year when I went to the UK, I really enjoyed the low humidity in the couple of runs I got in. I'm going to be accountable for making sure my niece keeps up with her pre-college fitness regimen, so I doubt I'll be getting too derailed.


                            My vacation actually gave me the best training block I have had a for a while. Being accountable for my niece was a great motivator.
