Ultimate Coffee Date for March

It’s that time of the month…

Life Is Better When You're Running 11-oz Mug Marathon image 0

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

1.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I’ve started taking yoga classes monthly. These two hour classes are geared for runners and every month, the teacher picks a different part of the body:

  • November – lower back & spine
  • December – upper back & neck

  • February – feet & calfs
  • March – quads &  hamstrings
  • April – glutes and piriformis

Do you do yoga? If you do, do you do it on your own or sign up for classes? 

2.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I have my THIRD half marathon of the year coming up.  New York City Half Marathon. Last year I ran it recovering from a calf injury.

I was hoping to be trained for it this year…

Nope, my foot has had other things to say.

Still excited about running through Times Square again. And  I hope the temps are warmer than last year.

NYC Half Marathon

Are you running the NYC Half?  If so, let’s meet up!

Do you repeat Half Marathons? Why or why not?

3.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that my running friends & I have planned our FOURTH race-cation.

We’ve already done Wineglass HM in Corning, NY, Hot Chocolate 15K in Brooklyn and a Rock n Roll HM in Montreal.

Our next one is in October – Smuttynose HM in Hampton Beach, NH.  We rented a house for 4 days…

Do you go on race-cations with your running friends? Anyone run the Smuttynose Half running are have run the Smuttynose Half?

4.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I am still trying to figure out what is the best running shoe for me … yes, after 10 years of running.

I tried Altra Torin Plush.  Nope!!

I loved my Nikes but after the strained calf muscle, I switched to Mizuno Inspires.

Now with the foot neuroma….

Altra Lone Peaks will be great for trail this summer, though

I tried Brooks Ghost. Nope.

Next up…Hokas?

Anyone else have problems finding the right running shoe? Anyone else run with a neuroma? What do you think of Hokas?

5.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I am so over winter running.  Wearing a skirt in Bermuda just wet my appetite.

Are you as anxious as I am for warmer temps?  Did you get away this winter to a summerish climate to run?

  • Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I’m not big on ambassador programs. In fact, there are only two that I now am part of.

One is Skirt Sports.  Actually I am this year a Legacy Ambassador which means I have already been an ambassador for several years.  I don’t have to promote as in the past but you bet I will because it’s the only brand of skirt (tights and capris) that I wear. (Get 15% with this code: SS15Dar562)

But for the first time, I am a Freihofer Run for Woman race ambassador. I am surprised and excited about this!! It is my favorite race and am honored to chosen and can’t wait to promote it.

Register for this race and get $5 off with the code AMBSS5

Are you an Ambassador for any products or races? If so, which one(s)?

Do you wear Skirt Sports? 

Are you running or have you ever run Freihofer Run for Women?

It’s 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. You know my answers. Not only have I not gone anywhere summerish, I haven’t been anywhere in over a year. Except to my parents.

    I’m an ambassador for products I truly believe in: Skirt Sports, Honeystinger, Nuun.

    I actually have been wanting to go back to in-studio classes but haven’t made it work yet.


  2. I used to head to the yoga studio for 2 classes a week. I need to get back to that but it never happens. I’m still smiling about Bermuda and yes I am chomping at the bit for warmer weather. I felt good the other day to run in a long sleeved shirt with no jacket or vest. Congrats on the race ambassador gig!


  3. I’ve taken my yoga practice to Youtube, lol. I used to go to the studio but it stopped serving me. Right now, I enjoy my home practice. I do love what yoga does for me!

    I’d love to run the NYC half. Right now, I’m an ambassador for All Community Events and CARA–those are the races I run the most. They’re local.

    • Most of my races are local but nyc is not too far.

      I’d love to visit Chicago one day and race of course.

      I know I could do yoga from online videos but I just don’t make time.


  4. Bill and I used to take a yoga for runners class too. I loved it. It was hilarious in some ways. When the instructor sat on the floor with her legs out in front of her and bent to touch her nose to her knees, we runners were lucky if we could get to 90 degrees! 🙂

    I have a half coming up in 2 weeks in North Carolina. Hoping it is warm there the end of March! I am still disappointed to miss the Smuttynose run. It would be cool to do it and meet up with you and your friends.

  5. I used to take yoga classes at a studio, but I’m so busy that I now do Rodney Yee’s DVD yoga classes at home.

    I had neuroma pain until I got my custom orthotics which made it completely go away. My doctor initially prescribed them to give me better arch support for my plantar fasciitis, but said he could add the metatarsal pads for my neuromas. Almost ten years later and they’re still doing the trick. Those expensive little things were worth every penny for me.

    I am so ready for spring!


  6. As you know, I have several repeat half marathons that I do every year. If I find a great race, I’m gonna support it. I don’t get into ambassadorships much either…but am currently working with Road ID (which I completely believe in), Knuckle Lights (which I use all the time) and an upcoming race (Chocoholic Frolic Iowa City).

  7. I have a new game for your posts — trying to answer with something you don’t know about me 😀 Occasionally I’m curious to try new shoes. I’ve only worn Asics and New Balance. But I also am slightly afraid of change and hurting my injury prone legs
    We’ve had a week of spring. No layers was NIIIICE

  8. I do have some Skirt Sports skirts I love — and a great bra too. Luckily the Brooks I tried after Mizunos seem to be doing OK. You sure have tried a lot of different brands.
