June was an eventful month in my running life. Here are some fast facts about my running last month. I ran 92.8 miles. I was going for 100 this month, since I haven’t made it to 100 in a month yet during 2017, but even despite a late-month surge, I didn’t quite make it. This still … More A full month of running: My June wrap-up
