Ultimate Coffee Date – December

Confessions of a Mother Runner

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

Over coffee…
I’d tell you that after the girls weekend Wineglass Half Marathon, our group has been continuing to plan weekend runs together. Best thing ever. I hate running alone so now I don’t have to.  Everyone may run at a different pace or for a different distance but we manage to pair up. Afterward we go out to breakfast together.

still missing 2 in the group but such a nice bunch of ladies

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that my BRF may not be able to join me on weekday runs anymore.  Her husband is ill and needs her home. I am bummed.  I guess I’ll have to suck it up and run alone.

will miss you Alyssa 😦

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I am trying to plan my 2018 races … at least the half marathons.

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

So far I only registered for the one above. I booked my flights, contacted my friends so I have places to stay and booked my hotel for the night before the race.

Now all I have to do is train…through the winter months… oh boy!

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I may be ODing on NYC. I was there for 3 days this past week for work. I will be there again for work next week and the week after. Then my friends want to go on one weekend to see the Downton Abbey exhibit.

Nah won’t get tired of this sight…

Over Coffee
I’d tell you that speaking of New York City, I ran along the Hudson River this past week.

And yes, this trail goes to where that terrorist mowed down innocent bikers.


Over coffee

I’d tell that I’m a little nervous about training for my March race.

Now that I travel for work, my running routes (except NYC) do not have lights.

I am not a hotel treadmill kind of gal.

I have knuckle lights so we’ll see. (Did you enter my giveaway?)

But at least I am going to Liverpool at the end of the month …where there will be lots of lights where I normally run.

Over coffee

I’d tell you that I AM GOING TO FRANCE!!! October 6-16, 2018.  With a friend who has friends to visit there (in Sanguinet) and me…to run a race in Paris, of course. (I’m over the moon!!) We got a great price on plane tix…now I have lots of time to work out the details. Race registration doesn’t open until Feb 14.

Oct 14, 2018 – over 25k run this race…yikes!

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

  1. Hopefully you’ll be able to hook up with Karen when you’re in France, too. Very exciting.

    I have zero races on the schedule for 2018, but no, sorry, not planning to go to FL for one. I’ll miss going somewhere warm in winter, but I won’t miss the feeling that I HAVE to train in the winter.


    • Contacted Karen. She was that she will run the race with me. I can’t wait to see her again.

      I don’t ever feel pressure to train. Remember I don’t have a coach or a training plan. But I like the motivation of having a big race on my schedule.

  2. I was in NYC last December, and I miss it! I loved seeing the store windows, Rockefeller Center, etc. Wow on France. #jealous While I love the wordpress snowflakes, I keep thinking I’m seeing spots. #lifeat50


  3. You are such a traveller! I’ve never been to Europe and am super envious of your trip to France – and of course, getting to run a race in Paris, what a super special thing!!!


  4. Best of luck on your training! I need to convince myself to run outside but it’s getting colder and colder and I’m a wimp when it comes to the cold, hahaha.

    I hope you have lots of fun in France!


  5. Awww, sorry about your friend’s husband being ill. Maybe you can find another runner friend, and then you guys can become a trio when she returns!
    How fun, France! It’s totally on my to-visit wish list for someday. Have a blast! 🙂
