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 10 week Troy Turkey Trot Challenge because I wanted to train for the 10K and to run with my usual Challenge friends.
Well, for the ‘advanced” group, there really isn’t a coach. Different and few runners show up each week. My friends did not sign up. The course is often on the track or a dark neighborhood or campus route. It was only 8 weeks not Ten.
I’m not a quitter. But I may skip the rest of the runs and I definitely will not sign up next year.
2. I runfess…
I won my age group at a recent 5k (Malta 5k). They didn’t have an award ceremony. You had to pick up the award at the local Fleet Feet store (which is not local for me.)
So I ignored it. I figured it was another medal that I didn’t need.
While I was in NH for my half, I got a call from someone at the store reminding me to pickup my award. Coincidentally, he would be in NH running the same race. Anyway, I asked him what the award was and he replied: Gift card to Fleet Feet. My response: I’ll pick it next Sat.
Long story short, I drove there the next Saturday but the RD has picked up the awards. (They may track it down and mail it to me.. but I doubt it.)
I didn’t want to waste the long drive:
After reading all those posts about saving money, I went to the Poshmark site…
Yup, I HAD to buy them.
Of course I would have saved more money if I didn’t buy them at all.
4. I runfess…
Now that I have signed up for ALL my 2021 races (I will have run 21 by the end of the year), I am figuring out my 2022 schedule.
I think I have my February Florida half marathon picked (a deferral from 2020)
but I am debating on my January race…
I definitely am having NYC FOMO:
My April half marathon choice is even more difficult..
It’s nice to finally say that there are actually choices.
Happy Running! Anything to runfess this month? Do you replace your shoes often? Have you signed up for any 2022 races yet? Please share.
