Friday Five 2.0 – Runfessions for July

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

1. I runfess…

I signed up for a Virtual Race which I normally don’t do.  Yes, I love to give to charity but there are so many race local races where I can do that.

Why did I sign up?  The swag.

awesome medal

cool women’s tech shirt

Do you run virtual races? Anyone else love Central Park as much as I do?

2. I runfess…

As a Rock N Blogger, I definitely feel FOMO every time a Rock n Roll race happens (especially this month when all my favorite bloggers were running in Chicago.) I loved Vegas and ran Brooklyn and my plan was to run several Rock N Roll races.  But they cancelled Brooklyn and the only east coast race is Montreal.  But not until Sept 23….

Any other Rock N Bloggers out there not able to run all the races they’d like? Anyone else running RnR Montreal??? Hopefully “yes.”

3. I runfess…

I used to race every weekend especially in the summer. But believe it or not, I only raced ONCE in July. Having friends to run with on the weekend has changed my running…

Do you ever lose the “racing fever”?

4. I runfess…

I used to reward myself with ice cream after long runs. But now I reward myself with ice cream after short runs and even after NO runs.

Ever give yourself an undeserved post run reward?

5. I runfess…

I bought a new skirt from Skirt Sports (that I don’t need) because I thought that the new pattern matched my new running shoes.

Women's Nike Air Zoom Vomero 13 Running Shoes - Color: Racer Blue/Blue Tint/Royal Pulse (Regular Width) - Size: 6.5

my shoes

except that it doesn’t match – still love the skirt.

Ever buy new running apparel just because of the color?

It’s Friday so I’m linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostesses and visit some other bloggers.

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

  1. Rock and Roll Marathon Montreal is on my radar, but just not this year with too many other commitments. Too bad Darlene, as the headliners are one of my favourite Canadian bands. If you make it to Montreal Darlene, I hope you have a great race! 🙂


  2. I enjoy racing, but not so much in summer. So let’s just forget that I am racing more than is normal for me this summer.

    I’m really digging a lot of the new SS prints. I may have just placed an order . . . this past trip was hard, despite all the skirts & the fact I was able to wash the 2 skirts I wore running at my MILs — and then ran in both again in ID. I don’t think there was a skirt I wasn’t in at least twice, sometimes more.


  3. I love the print on the new running skirt you ordered; and yes, I’ve done the same, and often.

    Can you believe I’ve never been to Central Park? My son and daughter-in-law moved to New Jersey so I hope to check a Central Park run off my bucket list soon!
