Ultimate Coffee Talk – October

Confessions of a Mother Runner

Since today is the first Saturday in October, I am joining up with Coco & Deborah for their ultimate coffee date.

Have you tried them??

Over coffee…
I’d tell you that at first I was disappointed that I didn’t push myself to a PR last weekend.  Hey I was on a PR pace until the last mile.

But now that I look back, I realize that I finished over 9 minutes faster than the half 2 weeks before!!

That is an accomplishment and there will be more opportunities.  I didn’t train for a PR so I can’t expect that it will just happen.

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that now that my girl’s weekend race-cation is over, I can focus on my next one.

Yes, I have another planned.  Nov 10-13 in LAS VEGAS!! (even despite the scary recent events…)

It will be quite different since we are all staying in different hotels and everyone is bringing their hubby except Marcia and me.

It should still be a #holottafun.

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I am still struggling over running my short races and training for my next half in 5 weeks.

With 40k runners running RNR Vegas, I doubt it will be a PR. So I think I will just do what I normally do – go with the flow (I am a coach’s nightmare.)

That means, run the races on the weekend and add on the miles afterward so I get the long runs in before the race.

5k + 6.9 = 10

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I am planning my spring races already… at least the half marathons.  It is a challenge without the funds or the time but I will make it happen!!!

FF Miles to fly to West Palm in Florida, points to rent a car and then stay with friends …

Singer Island Half on March 17, 2018 – anyone want to join me?

Points for a hotel in NYC …

Airbnb Brooklyn Half Marathon

Brooklyn Half on May 19, 2018 – Anyone else running this one?

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I will be having serious FOMO not running the PCB half this year but I can’t get off from work 😦

I’ll be there virtually

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I’m not ready for fall…not.at.all

I have amnesia about how to dress.  It happens every year.

What about you?  Liking the cooler temps?

Happy Running! Got anything to spill? Share it here!
