Ultimate Coffee Date for December’ 22

It’s that time of the month…

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

1. Over coffee… 

I’d tell you that if you’ve read my blog, you know that I ran THREE races in November and I enjoyed 2 out of 3.

The 15k and 10K were fun and the half was a miserable experience Yes, weather can impact how you feel about a race not just finish time.

2.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I’m very excited about my next race because it will be in NYC and a NEW race for me!!

NYRR Ted Corbitt 15K

Dec. 3, 2023

3.Over coffee

I’d tell you that I do not train on hills so I am relieved that the above race does not include HARLEM HILL!

It does include two runs up CAT HILL and a few other annoying hills.

Cat Hill - Still Hunt By Edward Kemeys - Outdoor Sculpture in New York

That’s what walking is for. LOL

Oh and Cari is running it, as well.

Feb ’22 – our last race together…

4.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I love visiting NYC during the holidays… no place does it better:

I also booked a 1.5 hr walking tour of Dyker Heights in Brooklyn. (Read about it here).

5.Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I already registered for SIX 2023 races:

Publix Fort Lauderdale Half (Feb), NYC Half (Mar), Helderberg to Hudson Half (Apr), Miles Along the Mohawk (May), Freihofer Run for Women (Jun) and Finger Lakes Half (Sept).

No surprise there.

I’m cheap frugal and want to get the lowest price.

I am most looking forward to the Finger Lakes Half Marathon… it’s a new race for me, a race-cation with 9 friends and the RD also gave us a group discount.

Happy Running! What’s new with you?  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!

So Join in!

  1. Congrats on getting to run the NY Half with lots of friends! I’m sure you’ll have a great time.

    Sometimes miserable weather makes for a miserable race — and other times I beat the weather. I can’t tell you what really makes the difference.

  2. NYC is so much to visit over the holidays! Hope to run the Ted Corbitt w you all one year but we are usually away. Alas, I will see you in March! I have learned that later is better for me for fall races. It’s just too hot here to run long in August

  3. I hope the NYC race is more fun than your last half marathon! You’re running it with Cari and will get to see NYC during December… so it should be fun.
    My husband and I STILL aren’t registered for the Ft Lauderdale half… obviously we like spending the big bucks my our race entries (sigh!)

    • It’s supposed to rain. Boo. But today the weather is nice.

      Lots of Black Friday discounts fir that race. But you don’t have to pay for a flight and hotel. So there’s that.


  4. Glad the 15k + 10k went well but sorry to hear about the bad weather on the half! I hope you have fun with the NYC one though!! :] They definitely do an amazing job of being super-festive during the holidays!
