Ultimate Coffee Date for May ’22

It’s that time of the month…

Starbucks Coffee City Mug Collection- Florida, 16 Oz Cup

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

1. Over coffee… 

I’d tell you that I have been selected as an Ambassador for this race!

Social Media Race Ambassadors | Maine Marathon

It will be held on October 2, 2022 in Portland, ME.  There is a half, full and marathon relay.  I am running it with my (crazy) running friends.

Please join us and take advantage of my code for a discount:

Darlene2022 (half/full)
Darlene2022R (relay)

2.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that for the second time, I am celebrating my pre-birthday by running up a mountain.

2021 at the top of Prospect Mountain in Lake George (almost 6 miles and over 1600 ft in elevation)

This year, however, since I need a 12 mile long Run, I am going to (I think) run DOWN the mountain, as well.

3.Over coffee/wine…

I’d tell you that I am celebrating my birthday (May 9) by leaving for my annual 8 day tennis vacation in Naples, Fl.  And no, I don’t play tennis anymore. LOL. (This trip began in 2005 when I did play regularly.)

hopefully we don’t have to wear masks this year.

haven’t played in ONE year… hope I remember how…

4.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that the 5k that I used to run during my May Florida tennis vacation has returned and I have signed up.

at the Tropicool 5k in 2019 with friend, Rebecca (who died in 2021)

I’m sure I’ll have fun sweating racing but it will be bittersweet.

5.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I have decided to reduce my work schedule and it was approved to work 90% starting in the middle of June.  That means I will have every other MONDAY OFF!!

I am over the moon!!! More running or hiking or maybe even go back to playing tennis…

Happy Running! What’s new with you?  Any trips or races planned? Anyone want to join me in Maine?  Do any of you play tennis? Or work less than full-time? Please share.







It’s Friday so I’m also linking up with bloggers, Me (My First 5K and More), Running With AttitudeRun Laugh Eat PieRuns with Pugs, and Zenaida!

  1. That’s so exciting that you get to have more time off from work! I’m sure you will feel a lot better with a bit more free time.

    Enjoy the race. At least it looks like your good weather streak is holding! I imagine it will be a lot cooler up there, though — but good for racing.


    • I’m excited about the day off. A little nervous about the pay cut. We’ll see how it goes. I can always go back to full time.

      Also excited about a lake visit even though it’s from above. Lol.

  3. My friend and I signed up for the race! We are so excited. The hotels are crazy expensive and so is the airfare but we will figure it out. Have an amazing birthday trip

  4. Having Mondays off would be awesome! I have no doubt you’ll find plenty of fun things to fill up your long weekends off. That’s fun that you’re an ambassador the race in Maine. I’m sure it will be a great race!

  5. Sounds like you have all kinds of things to be excited about ;’-) Congrats on the race ambassadorship…wish I could swing that, but it’s a bit too far and during a busy time (umm, football season, LOL). Happy early Birthday 😉

  6. I want to join you in Maine, but we have a band thing! Darn it!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful Mother’s Day and you enjoy your birthday trip! No trips for me this spring. Soon.
