FFF: The Last Runfessions of 2022

It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice

And the last one for this year!!

1.  I runfess…

I flunked Planksgiving.

I had good intentions and I started out strong. In fact, I planked for the first 12 days.

On November 13, there was the Stockadeathon 15k race…

And you what happens once you stop, it’s hard to start again.

And so I didn’t.

2.  I runfess…

Last month I admitted that I had a weakness for cute running shirts.

Actually I have a bigger obsession for calf sleeves.

I like to wear ones that match my outfit, and for each season or holiday…

St. Patrick’s Day and Thanksgiving covered.

Now I have three new pair:

3.  I runfess… 

I signed up for ALL FIVE races offered in Dec-Feb through a local racing club.

They are FREE, have age group awards and delicious food after… so why not??

Well, the races are on Sunday.  My running friends run on Saturday… the course is quite boring but there are usually three distances to choose from (the longer the distance, you more you loop).

First world problems…

I may walk on Saturday and then race on Sunday or run long on Saturday and fun run on Sunday… TBD

Winter Series #1 = “fun” run

4.  I runfess…

So with no half marathons scheduled for December and January, I’m losing my weekend long run mojo.

It’s hard to want to run double digits in the freezing cold, right?


I even considered signing up for the Fred LeBow Half Marathon again in NYC..

No, I didn’t sign up!!

At least I have one in February and March to train for.

2021 Publix Fort Lauderdale A1A VIRTUAL Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K, & Kids Race

2023 United Airlines NYC Half

5. I runfess…

Instead I signed up for half marathons in April, May (this one should be a Runfession but I’ll explain next Friday) and September:

  1. The calf sleeves are a fun addition to an outfit! I am sure you will fill up your race calendar even more. 🙂 You already have some fun ones to look forward to

  2. Well, if it makes you feel any better, I also flunked Planksgiving. I flunked worse than you did.
    My husband is also planning to run the half in February but has not been
    doing long runs. I think his longest recent run was four miles. I’ve been gently “hinting” (nagging in disguise) about it… “Let’s see, how many weeks till this half?” It should be interesting.
    Happy New Year, Darlene!

  3. I love calf sleeves, too, but it’s been awhile since I’ve added any new ones to my stash. Those Christmas lights ones, pictured above, are almost an identical match to a shirt of mine! I have a tough time doing double digit runs in the cold weather, which is why the two summer marathons I’ve done, were sort of struggle bus adventures 😉 Now, a double digit run in the heat of summer…bring it!!

  4. I’m not signed up for anything but my NYD 5k and the Frozen Gnome 10k in January. But I’m going to sign up for that 15 mile trail race in April and one in July in Colorado with my son. In between? Let’s see what pops up on my radar!

  5. so nice your calendar is filling up! love it! I won’t be doing any long distances next year, at least I don’t think so but you never know… I love the calf sleeves, in fact I love to be quite colorful when I’m out running, usually that’s my InkNBurn gear or at least my hair hahaha! I probably would have flunked planksgiving as well, I just don’t do challenges that well
