The Ultimate Coffee Date – June

Since today is the first Saturday in June,  I am joining up with CocoDeborah, and Lynda for their ultimate coffee date.

The Ultimate Coffee Date
Over coffee or tea…

I would tell you that I feel guilty about not running enough with STEM.  I love that group but I missed 4 Wednesdays in a row. For two, I was in Florida. Then I went out to dinner for one and ran with my Freihofer Training group for the other. So I only have one more left before their big race.


The interview below with the STEM coordinator explains it all.

Over coffee or tea…

I would tell you that I am still mentally recovering from my half marathon.  Every time someone asks, I have to retell the story. More than ever, I realize that I made the right decision to finish the race.

Almost there!

Over coffee or tea…

I’d tell you that I am looking forward to today’s 5k even though I know that my legs will not be able to run fast.

2011 was the last time that I trained for the race and I finished in 28:08. (2012 -post ankle surgery, 2013-broken foot, 2014-post VCM relay.)

Next year, I plan to skip the VCM relay and actually train for this race.

Over coffee or tea…

I would tell you that it is strange not to have a half marathon until September 24. I ran one in February, on in March, one in April and one in May…Will I cave and sign up for one in August??

It is VERY hilly. It will be hot. I should only run the 10k……

Over coffee or tea…

I would tell you that I am hoping for great weather on the weekends (to go boating) and also that my hubby doesn’t divorce over my summer racing schedule…

  • 6-12-16  – Run for Help 5k
  • 6-18-16 – Cancer Crushers 5k ???
  • 6-26-16 – Adirondack Distance Run 10m
  • 7-10-16 – Saratoga Springs Strong to Serve 5K ??
  • 7-23-16 – Silks and Satins 5K
  • 7-31-16 – Care for Kids 5k
  • 8-13-16 – Camp Chingachgook 10k or Half Marathon???
  • 8-20-16 – Jailhouse Rock 5K

our happy place

Over coffee or tea…

I would tell you that I’d like to try SUPing on the lake this summer.  I am nervous due to my lack of balance and bad ankle.

I also want to try kayaking.

Happy Running! Anything to vent?  Any exciting plans for the summer?

  1. I bet you will end up doing that August race lol
    I think it is great you finished your half! I am sure it was tough.
    Your racing schedule is something! I have a plan to run one before December, but I am waiting to sign up in case things don’t go well for me.


  2. I hope you had a good 5k yesterday! I have never tried SUP but it looks fun. I have some holiday time booked for the end of the month, but we haven’t decided what to do with it yet, so currently we have no plans for summer really.


  3. Try the SUP- I think you will enjoy it once you find your balance! I hope your 5K went well yesterday- happy Sunday!


  4. Darlene, what a great race schedule you have planned out. Such a wonderful summer ahead of you. SUP is amazing! You must try it. We take the kids out on the lake and do it, I have also done it in Maui and had a sea turtle swim underneath my board. No running plans on my list as of yet, but am hoping to slowly get back into it again this summer. Thanks for coffee
