And another month bites the dust! *Insert cliche phrase about time going too fast*
I Belong To You by Brandi Carlie - Since I saw Brandi Carlile last night (!!!!) I had to share one of her songs for this month's recap. This is one of the songs from her latest albums. It's a live performance so the sound quality isn't great but you can see how talented she is live.
Shots by Imagine Dragons - This song has such a catchy beat. I've loved it from the first time I heard it, which isn't too surprising as I pretty much loved every song on the band's first album. Although I will say that this song has a very different sound compared to their first album.
July was a strong reading month for me as I read 7 books! My favorite out of everything I read was The House Girl. Similar to previous months, any books with a star behind them counted towards the read harder challenge.

July was also a strong running/biking/swimming month for me. I hit the triple digit mileage mark for running as I ran 118 miles! I also biked 92 miles and swam 3.75 miles (5 x 0.75 mile open water swims). I logged a lot of miles but only fit in 3 strength training sessions which isn't great but between triathlon and marathon training I struggle to make time to strength train.
My looks for the month were kind of unremarkable. I didn't wear anything new or exciting. It was a pretty warm/humid month so my outfit selection has been all about finding things that I won't get too hot in while biking to/from work but are warm enough so that I won't freeze at work... and that's pretty tricky! The only notable outfit was the dress I wore to a wedding but I already shared a photo of that... Hopefully I'll wear some outfits worth sharing in August.
