Belated Runfessions – October

It’s that time again.  Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice

Sorry I’m a little late on this one…

I runfess…

I was in NYC for work for 5 days this past week.  I didn’t bring my laptop but I did have my iPad.  So I could have.  But I didn’t feel like blogging. So I skipped WW, TOLT and Friday Five. Just needed a breather. Ever feel blogged out?

I runfess…

Though I was in NYC for work, my mind was fixated on “Where and when can I run today?

It’s not easy in a strange city when you have little free time.


sometimes you just have to miss lunch

I had hoped to do the following:

  • run along the Hudson River
  • run along the East River
  • run to Battery Park
  • run in Central Park

I did accomplish the first three.

I runfess…

I ran four races this month.  Remember I suffer from the FOMO disease.


even raced in these horrible conditions

I almost ran one this weekend too. But I felt guilty neglecting my mentee and her kids so I spent time with them on Saturday.  I just wish my running friends would not post pix from their races on FB when I don’t run.  LOL.

I runfess…

I choose my long run locations based on the post run fueling options.  Don’t you?

I runfess…

I signed up for 6 races in November!! Yes, six!  a 10k, a 15k, and 4 5ks. At least none of them is a half marathon.  This just means that my long runs may be non-existent.


the Troy turkey trot 10k is one of my favorites

I have a 5k in NYC this Saturday. The logistics for the weekend will be crazy – getting there, checking into my airbnb apt, meeting my friend from Russia, getting my bib, getting to the race, planning a blogger meet-up, getting my luggage, getting home, etc.  There’s a 5k somewhere in the mix. I haven’t given the race a second thought.  It’s just for fun.  I would love to spectate the NYC marathon on Sunday but I don’t have a place to stay Saturday night.  (Any offers?)

Happy Running! Anything to Runfess?

  1. Sometimes I need a blogging break too.
    That is a lot of racing and running. Glad you got to run several times in NY. See you Saturday ! You will be able to speak French with my husband 🙂


  2. busy busy lady! Blogging breaks are good!! I have one 5K and one 10K this month- gotta get ready for PCB! I loved your NYC pics- such a pretty place to be in the fall!


  3. I do a lot of posts before I leave, and then I get my blogging break that way.

    But I miss my blog when I don’t blog — or at least I guess I do when circumstances (not fun ones) prevent me from blogging.

    I’m only planning 2 races in November. Oops, no, I guess it’s actually 3 . . .
