June was such a blur! I thought it would be a quieter, slower month but it totally wasn't. It was a weird month, though. It certainly had some highs but it also had more than its fair share of anxiety and stress (related to work) so I am glad it's behind me!
*crickets* I have not listened to much music lately as I mostly listen to podcasts when I am in the car (which isn't very often) so I don't have any new songs I'm loving these days!
I read 4 books in June, so it was kind of a low reading month (for me). All of the books I read were pretty good, but it's been awhile since I've read something that I absolutely LOVED. Similar to previous months, the books I starred are ones I read for the Read Harder Challenge.
Citizens of London by Lynne Olson - 3 stars (book club book)
French Milk by Lucy Knisley - 4 stars
Nobody's Cuter Than You by Melanie Shankle* - 3 stars
In the Shadow of the Banyan by Vaddey Ratner* - 4 stars
June was not my best month for running as I had some random pain in my ankle/foot that made me take some extra rest days. I got it x-rayed just to be sure it wasn't a stress fracture, and everything looked fine so that was a relief. My total miles for the month were 60, which is my lowest month since February! Oh well - I am sure July will be a higher mileage month since I'm marathon training now. I also biked 56 miles, swam 5 times, and did 5 strength training workouts (lower than I'd like but it's tough to fit everything in these days).
My favorite look of the month was the dress that I wore to my cousin's wedding. You can't see much of it in the photo but the best part about it is that it has pockets!! It's also nice that the neckline has jewels sewn into it so I did not have to wear any jewelry with it! I've had this dress for 2 years and this is only the second time I have worn it - I need to pull it out of my closet more often.
How was your month of June? This is my last post before the 4th of July holiday - have a great weekend and for my American readers, have a safe and fun 4th of July! And Happy Canada Day to my Canadian readers!!
