Throwback Thursday: How to Survive the Summer Running Season

Welcome to the latest edition of my monthly series called throwback Thursday! It is when I dig deep in the blog archives and share a blog post that you may have missed the first time around. It's also the perfect opportunity to share a self-indulgent throwback picture!

I think I mentally just skipped over July this year. It seems like nothing happened and everything all at once. Last time that I was paying attention it was June. I just looked at the calendar and realized that tomorrow is August 1st. Where did it go?

I probably should update you that after I quit my job last month, my amazing company made me an offer (that had nothing to do with money), that I couldn't refuse. I really don't like to get into too much personal stuff here but I thought since I wrote a whole blog post about quitting my job, I should probably tell you that I am still gainfully employed, just under circumstances that are much better for me right now. I guess things work out the way they are supposed to. If I wouldn't have quit my job, I wouldn't be in the place I am today. The lesson I learned in all of this is to speak up! I was suffering in silence (my husband wouldn't say it was so silent) when all I had to do was raise my hand and tell someone how I was feeling. Yay employment!

I am looking forward to August. It will be our nine year wedding anniversary and we will be heading to La Jolla, CA for our vacation. Since I almost completely forgot about throwback Thursday this month (I think I forgot to do anything in July) I thought it would be appropriate to share our wedding picture, as I am getting pretty excited about our upcoming vacation.

I love throwback Thursday because sometimes I have an idea for a blog post and then I remember that I already wrote it, over a year ago. No need to reinvent the wheel. I read the things I wrote a long time ago and can look at them from a fresh perspective, make updates, freshen up images for Pinterest, and silently groan about about the grammar mistakes while I correct them and hope no one noticed.

When I was looking for a throwback Thursday idea I came across a post I wrote last summer about how to survive the summer running season. Since I've been drudging through these hot Texas runs, it seemed like the perfect post for the last day in July. I even learned something! I completely forgot that I used to set water bottles on the front step by the street and run loops past my house so I could stop for water breaks! Check out the full post for how I survive running in the heat.
