Friday Five & Ultimate Coffee Date for May

It’s that time of the month…

my daily breakfast in Paris (thinking about Notre Dame 😦 )

to join up with Coco & Deborah for their ultimate coffee date.

1.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that May is about as busy as April.  2 5ks and a 3.5 miler

The same ones that I did last year and the year before:

Racing season continues in the NE.

Does your racing pick up this time of year?

2.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I have my 4th half marathon of the year scheduled for this month.

With a 8 day Florida vacation in the middle and the short races above, it will be another…just get me through the finish line kind of race.

It’s an inaugural race…so no reviews but I think it will be HILLY!!

And the cut-off is 500 racers.

Do you train seriously for your big races? Do you like to run inaugural races? How have they been? Hilly, flat or downhill? What is your preference? Small or big races?

3.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that we our new kitten, Chap (short for Champion) has made himself at home in our house.  He is very active and has even caught his first mouse (in our basement eek). Unfortunately, our older cat is not a fan.

Do your pets get along? Any advice to make my older cat hate the kitten less?

4.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I always say that I am ONE and done when I run a half marathon. But I enjoyed my recent local half marathon so much, I think I will run it again in 2020. And even train for it LOL.

Do you repeat big races?

5.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that as we speak, I am in Naples, Florida on my annual tennis vacation – (with 9 other women that I used to play tennis with). We have gone here this week every year since 2005.

Yes, a tennis vacation and I no longer really play.

These women are my closest friends and we will do a lot more things than play tennis.

 Do you like to go on girls vacations? Do they always involve running?

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

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

  1. Do I repeat big races? What’s a big race? I probably won’t repeat the NYC Half because of lottery luck required. I’m not repeating Brooklyn as I’m not here, but might do it next year. I don’t consider Lebow big even though it was my first and is a personal favorite — it’s more of a local race that happens to be in NY vs a destination race like the other two. FLL Half is small, and there’s something to be said for small. As for the BIG Big one? TBD. I am getting my 9+1 so I can, if I want to.

  2. I hope you are enjoying your vacation! I might try an inaugural local race, but I wouldn’t travel for one. Too much can go wrong! If I know a course is hilly, I will try to train for that. Otherwise it can be rough.
