Runfessions – February

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

  • I runfess…

When I get depressed about the weather, I sign up for spring/summer races.  It makes me feel like spring is almost here even though I know that it’s a long way away.

  • 3-31-18 – Ice Breaker Challenge 5K
  • 4-29-18 – Cherry Blossom 5k
  • 5-19-18 – Brooklyn Half Marathon
  • 6-02-18 – Freihofer Run for Women 5K
  • 6-30-18 – Adirondack 15K Race to the Lakes

Runners at the start of the Cherry Blossom 5K run for ALS research. The evnt was held at Congregation Gates of Heaven, located on Ashmore Ave. on Sunday, April 26, 2015.

Has anyone else already registered for spring/summer races?

I bought my race outfit for my March half marathon before I even signed up for the race.

Skirt Sports of course – use the code 128Card for 15% off

Am I the only one who does this?

  • I runfess…

I was kinda glad that I got snowed Friday night when I was working in Buffalo. It meant that I could get up later the next morning and run at my leisure instead of driving 5 hours home (in a snowstorm).

So it was supposed to be a long run of 9 miles but…. 5 slow ones was better than nothing.

Anyone else had it with this winter?

  • I runfess…

I signed up for the Superman, Squats, Russian Twist challenge to motivate myself to do some strength training. And it worked for a while. But I suck at challenges.  The rarely did the Supermans because they are too hard for me and then I lost interest when you had to do more than 50.  I break them up and I always ran out of time or forgot. And yes, I did some, some of the time which was better than none, never.

Do I look happy?

Happy Running! Anything to runfess this month? Please share.

  1. Haha! You’re cracking me up with the squat pic! I hate the supermans too ..they hurt my back. Even though I have continued to do them ..I runfess I barely get my legs and arms off the ground after the first set! Lol

    I would be so over winter if I had to deal with what you guys deal with …good grief! It’s like it’s always snowing there!!!

    Cute outfit too!

  2. I’m never really much of a fan when you have to do a certain number of whatever. I rarely do them (you may have noticed). Quality over quantity. FOMO can get you in trouble. 🙂

    Even though I plan a few Spring races — naturally not as many as you — I am not signed up for anything. Except Firecracker. Which is, of course, not a Spring race. But I plan to . . .


  3. I runfess, I’m not good with challenges. With elbow tendonitis and a catch in my back — I just shouldn’t do some of that stuff anyway. You’ve been busy hitting the registration button. I think that’s the perfect antidote for the gray winter blues!
