It’s currently mid-August and the weather here in Pittsburgh is pretty sunny and hot almost everyday. I am not going to lie – I love it! I am one of those odd people who doesn’t mind running in heat and I would much rather have scorching hot weather than blistering cold weather! Therefore, I have been enjoying my runs this week very much. This is one of my favorite times of year to run! Today I want to give you an update of my weekly workouts and a Run Coaching Giveaway!
I’m 2 weeks in to my 30 Day Wellness Challenge and so far it’s going well. I have not drank any alcohol in over 2 weeks and I have not had any caffeinated coffee. The coffee has been the hardest part. I will admit that I did have one cup of green tea last week during a particularly weak moment, but still going strong with no coffee! The other parts of the wellness challenge have also been going well! 2 more weeks to go!
As far as running, right now I’m working on building up my base mileage after taking it very easy in June and July after I ran the Pittsburgh Half Marathon (virtually). I have no virtual races on the horizon, so I’m just running for the pure enjoyment of it right now.
One of our favorite things to do in the summer is to go on family walks in the evening! It’s a time for us to bond as a family and spend time together in a healthy way! Lately Ethan has really been enjoying the rides in the stroller too! He likes to point out all the cars he sees during the walks.

Monday was a very hot run, but I still enjoyed it! Listened to the Dave Ramsey Podcast – my favorite! (I’m a personal finance junkie!)
