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 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?
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.
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 ran four races this month. Remember I suffer from the FOMO disease.
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 choose my long run locations based on the post run fueling options. Don’t you?
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.
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?
You are going to be one busy lady next month! That sticky bun looks amazing!
It was. Glad I don’t live close to this bakery. And I don’t have any long runs planned for quite a while.

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 🙂
Oui oui oui
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!
NYC is a fun place to visit.
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 . . .
I used to schedule my posts ahead but no time on the new job.
Remember I’ve been blogging since 2008 – I’ve said it all.

Eh, you blog so often normally that I’m not surprised you needed a bit of a break. Besides, you were BUSY!
Yes. I enjoy connecting with other runners. But I actually knit in the evening rather than going on the blog.
