Ultimate Coffee Date – July

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

The Ultimate Coffee Date

Where did June go?  I felt like I just wrote June’s UCD post.


Over coffee or tea

I’d tell you that along with loss of my blogging mojo, I’ve lost my running mojo.

I had started writing Wednesday & Thursday posts and just didn’t feel like finishing them and posting.

Now instead of running, I am writing this post.

It’s perfect running weather – cool & breezy but here I sit at my computer.

It’s basically because I have too much free time (I need a busy schedule) and I am in a funk about being unemployed.

Over coffee or tea

I’d tell you that I am liking playing tennis everyday with different people.  Because the groups play at a certain time, you have to show up.  No procrastinating. I am meeting lots of new people. It’s a great diversion from job hunting.


Over coffee or tea

I’d tell you that I have a new running friend.  Don’t worry Judy & Barbara, I still need you guys.

I met her on FB and we have run twice together and plan to again next week.  She is training for a marathon and no, I am not tempted.



Over coffee or tea

I’d tell you I’m going through Starbucks withdrawal.  I am saving money not working across the street from a Starbucks.  I haven’t given it up totally since there is one when I shop at Target or grocery shop at Price Chopper.  Yesterday I had to resort to making my own chocolate banana protein smoothie.


Over coffee or tea

I’d tell you that I bit the bullet and signed for a SUP class tomorrow.  I even talked Judy into it.  I’m a little nervous because I can’t bend my ankle due to all the hardware in it and I can’t balance because of it.  I guess the worst that can happen is that I will look like a fool and get wet.

Hopefully, I learn enough to be able to SUP on Lake George.

Over coffee or tea

I’d tell you that I have been racing a lot.  I’ve run 4 races in June – three 5ks and a 10 miler.

But this weekend I am not racing. The only race around here is Monday and I’d rather be up at the lake.


I did sign up for at least 3 in July.

Over coffee or tea

I’d tell you that July 4th is one of my favorite holidays.  I love the fireworks.  I have watched them every year ever since I was a kid.

watching the fireworks from our boat

Now we get to watch them over the lake.

Happy 4th!

Happy Running! Anything to spill?  Are you racing this weekend?  Do you like to watch the fireworks? Have you tried SUPing? Anyone watching the Olympic Trails?

  1. You didn’t have to talk me into it (just the date), I’ve been talking about doing this for literally years and had already been looking at those classes! I didn’t think about your ankle, but hey, they didn’t think you could run so there you go.

    Losing or transitioning jobs is a huge change & it’s not at all surprising that you feel at a loss. Just hang in there. One of my best friends from HS just got laid off too (different state). 😦

    I didn’t know you actually made your own smoothie when we posted that, I’m surprised I didn’t feel any shock waves up here. 🙂


    • My hubby laughs when I say I need lessons. He and all our friends just got on it on LG.

      Hey. I may surprise you and bake or cook something healthy.

      • Boredom must really be setting in if you’re baking! I have a lot of stuff I’ve been wanting to bake lately, but haven’t had the time!

        Which doesn’t mean I haven’t been baking, just not as much as I want to, which is probably a good thing.

        It’s a world gone mad.


  2. For someone who’s lost their running mojo you’ve done a lot of running – maybe you just need a bit of a break. Good luck on the job hunting. I’m sure it’s frustrating.
