June marked my return to Nike Speed after taking the whole month of May off for marathon recovery. I ran 2 races in June, the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge (3.5 miles) on June 11 (25:20) and the Achilles Hope & Possibility 5 mile on June 28 (36:55). I really took it easy, my longest run was 8.5 miles on June 7. My goal for July is increase my long run to about 13 miles. I doubt that I will increase the intensity as it's hard for me to run fast when it's hot and humid.

It was a good first 6 months for me. I set a new 5k PR on 1/1/09, a 10 mile PR on 2/22/09, and a marathon PR at 5/3/09. As for the second half of the year:
- my only big race is the Asbury Park Marathon Relay on October 18.
- I'm sure there will be some shorter races that come up along the way but I'm not racing past the marathon distance.
- I'm looking forward to running through the summer without the pressure of marathon training.
- I will pick a spring 2010 marathon sooner rather than later to take advantage of any early bird pricing.
