FFF: Ultimate Coffee Date for Feb. ’22

It’s that time of the month…

Gift For Running Women and Runner Girls - 13.1 Half Marathon Run Word Cloud Typography - 11oz Ceramic Unique Coffee Mug Tea Cup, Black - Inspirational and Motivational Present

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

1. Over coffee… 

I’d tell you that I just ran a half marathon but crazy me signed up for two more this month!

Publix Florida Marathon & 1/2 Marathon - Melbourne, Florida - 2/13/2022 - My BEST Runs - Worlds Best Road Races

Feb. 27, 2022

2.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that you can never have too many pairs of running shoes especially if someone sells them cheaply. (I do add my own insoles!!)

Topos for $49 (new=$130) and they’re purple!

$40… had to buy them

3.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that my running group has been shrinking.  Between those who winter in Florida, those who are sick and those who are injured, I have struggled to find company to do my long runs on the weekends.  But fortunately I have only had to run ONE long run solo (due to 2 last minute cancellations).

I miss my tribe!

4.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I giddy about leaving this cold weather and heading to Florida in less than a week. I know it may not be very warm but it won’t be icy and the temps should be above freezing.

beach time?

5.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that related the above vacation, I have quite a few friends to visit and activities with them, believe it or not, will NOT involve running.

with a tennis friend, college roommate and former co-worker

Don’t worry, there will be:

    • a sunrise run or two
    • a half marathon
    • a meet-up with a running blogger (guess who?)

Happy Running! What’s new with you?  Have you signed up for any winter long races? Do you ever buy used clothing/shoes? Any trips planned to escape the cold?  Do you always try to get in your running when you visit friends? Have you met other bloggers in person? Please share.

  1. Well there is snow in TX right now but I think you’re safe.

    I have never bought used running shoes. Not sure if I’ve ever bought used regular shoes. I don’t buy much in used clothes at all. But I will certainly look for bargains on new stuff!

  2. Hmmm, who could the mystery running blogger be? ; )
    I can tell you it’s pretty warm and toasty here right now- we’ll try to hold onto that for you!
    You just reminded me that I bought a pair of Topos and only wore them a couple times- I’m going to take them out again and see how they work with my new orthotics.

    • Yes. Love my topos. But they’re not for everyone. And they have so many styles.

      See you soon. Keep some sunshine. It’s miserable here.


  3. Love the “new” shoes. I have never bought used running shoes. Sounds like these were a great deal.

    My husband’s family lives in FL, Palm Bay, so I’m familiar with Melbourne. I didn’t know that they had a marathon this month. I was supposed to go down for my granddaughter’s birthday, but she decided to just have friends over and no real party – she’s turning 13 on the 8th. I hope you enjoy the warmer weather and have a great Half.

  4. Hah! I know exactly where you are in the pic in 5. I’ll be there shortly. I’m hopefully going to also meet up with said running blogger in a few weeks.
    Purple shoes! I did buy one pair too many though. I just don’t have th eroom

  5. Have fun in Florida!
    When I find running shoes that fit I immediately buy another similar pair.
    No races here, cancelled or postponed for Covid.
    I have never bought used clothes or shoes.
    I always try to get in my running when I go to another place.
    I have met other bloggers in person and it was a pleasure.
