There went June! Later!

Let’s take a moment of silence…

I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake. – Lewis Black

Quote

 

For my next goal, I wish to drink coffee. Lots of it. So, let’s go find some new coffee shops in Washington, D.C. or other random places.

June/July Goal: Visit 14 new coffee shops

I rate a good coffee shop with the following Yes/No criteria:

  • Is the coffee good? (Doesn’t matter, I’ll just order a mocha or vanilla latte).
  • Good ambience?
  • Plenty of seats? Roomy?
  • Outside seating?
  • Does it offer free, do-it-yourself water?
  • Free wi-fi?
  • Food or baked goods?
  • Non-key access bathroom?

I’ll probably try to work from a few coffee shops once a week or so, to escape the office!

Drink up!

Let’s look at how I did for my April/May goal!

 

April/May Goal: Hike and run 140 miles

Final stats: 140.11 miles

Result: Success!

Totals breakdown:

  • Running = 8.55 miles
  • Hiking = 131.56 miles

Analysis:

I busted out a 12 mile hike on the last day and completed this beast.

I did not run as much as I intended to. I also missed the Semper Fi 5K because I was flying home from hot and rainy Thailand.

But I did complete the One Day Hike (31.1 miles) and a practice hike (26.6 miles) that saved the day!

May happened. Just think, it was the first and last May 2014. Ever. There will never be another.

Now it’s June’s turn. No need to dwell on the past. Except…take a moment to preuse these photos then start living in the moment.

Enjoy June 2014. It will be the last one.
