what's up June

Warning: this post is filled with exclamation points and capital letters. BE PREPARED!

How the hell is it almost June?! I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by!!  Lots of exciting things on tap for the month of June though, so I say bring it on!

June 1 = MOVING DAY!

New house! 
Ok, so I'll only be living on the top floor of the house.  Yep, the one with the screened in porch that will be getting a LOT of use.  I'm not buying it, just renting...but that's ok.  The bf and I decided to take the plunge and get an apartment together.  We've been together almost 2 1/2 years and wanted to wait until the timing was absolutely right.  Well, the time is now!  I've been busting my butt trying to bring stuff over before Saturday so we don't have to do it all in one day.  Moving is probably one of my least favorite things to do.  After living with family/roommates for a while, I am VERY ready to have my own place filled with my own crap. I can't wait to get everything moved in and settled and be able to enjoy it.

June 15 & 16 = Going to see my very favorite band of all time, Dave Matthews Band!

This was taken at the concert I went to, we were 5 rows back.
I stopped counting how many times I have seen them play in concert.  30? 35?! who knows!  Probably a little ridiculous, but I don't care.  I just can't say no when they come around.  It's always a guaranteed good time filled with drinks, tailgating, and good music!  They're playing down in Mass, so we're getting a hotel and making a weekend out of it.  I also took the beginning of the week off from work.  It's been a long time since I've been able to take a vacation from work and get paid for it.  I guess being a "grown up" has some perks.  

The entire month of June = first full month with a running coach (the fabulous Stephanie Bruce)!

Oh hey there...maybe with your help,
I too can finish 9th at Bolder Boulder!

Ok, I probably definitely won't ever be the rockstar she is, but I am super excited to try to make some improvements.  I have completed my first full week of training, and am now on to the second.  My legs have been pretty tired and a little sore all week from the half marathon I ran on Sunday, so the workouts have been tough.  I love having the structure though and going to my calendar to see what I will be running that day.  It makes every run feel like more than just a run. 

As of right now I don't have any races on the calendar until the marathon I'm signed up for (my second) in October.  I've been searching for some other races to run in the mean time, but I haven't settled on anything yet.  I'm nervous about running a race in summer because I get EXTREMELY warm and sweaty.  But I'd like to find something that's maybe a shorter distance like a 10k or one that starts early in the morning.  Decisions...decisions. 
While I'm not thrilled about how fast the time is going, I am looking forward to everything planned during the month of June.  So, with that I say see ya later, May.  June, I am ready for you.
