It’s that time of the month…
I live in upstate NY so it’s HOT coffee in the morning before work and red wine in front of the fireplace at night.
Spring arrives later this month and the days are getting longer. And my quarantine has ended. 🙂
But I’m still trying to hold onto memories of my warm sunny days in Florida.
1. Over coffee/wine…
I’d tell you that in addition to being relieved that I had gotten both of my COVID vaccines before I left for my Florida vacation, the CDC advised that you did not have to quarantine after 14 days post vaccine #2. Many states have no quarantining requirements. Some states (like NY) have stricter ones. It’s all so confusing.
What are the travel requirements in the state where you live?
I’d tell you that contrary to popular belief, I felt safe from COVID while I was recently in Florida. As a result, I am in the midst of planning our annual tennis trip to Naples (April 28-May 5.) The snag will be that some of my friends are not over 65 so may not have gotten both of their vaccines yet. It just may be a smaller group this year. In times, like this, it pays to be older.
If you traveled during the pandemic, how did you feel? Do you have any future travel plans?
I’d tell you that it was quite disheartening that both my feet still are painful when I run. Obviously I can withstand the pain or I would not run and race half marathons but I definitely will NOT run another marathon (with foot pain.) And yes, I’ve rested, gotten shots, new shoes, PT, etc. And no, I do not plan to have surgery.
Any bunion/neuroma advice? Do you run/race with non-injury-related pain?
I’d tell you that that I am not running as fast as I used to. I am planning to embrace my slowness. But that seems easier if you run long races… Not a problem yet since most races for 2021 are still cancelled. I used love my weekly 5ks.
Long distance or short distance races, which is your preference? Does finish time matter? Only answer if you have been running at least 10 years. (If not, you can still get faster.)
I’d tell you that in spite of what I said about my snail’s pace, I signed up for a five mile race on March 13. What was I thinking?
I guess I was thinking back to my favorite 5 miler, the Delmar Dash (which will not happen again this year.)
