Good morning friends! It has been awhile since I have sat down for a cup of coffee with you all and I have missed it!
If we were having coffee…I would tell you that I am getting a little anxious to run a half marathon next week. I’d tell you that my husband and I decided on a whim about 4 weeks ago to go ahead and sign up and that I’m just not sure 4 weeks was enough for me to train.You would ask me how my long runs have been and I’d say that my pace has been a little slower than I’d like, but I managed to get a 12 miler in last week without incident and in under 9 minutes per mile on average. I’d be afraid to tell you that my goal is to run 8:30 pace or better and finish around 1:50. Stay tuned!
If we were having coffee….You would ask me about my employment situation. I’d cringe a little as I told you that I have not yet secured a full time job. But then I’d tell you that I have a BIG interview coming up next week and that I am pretty nervous, but very excited. In the meantime, I’ve done some freelance writing work for a website called Fashion Week and it has been kind of fun. A lot of work for not much pay, but fun nonetheless.
If we were having coffee… I would tell you that I’m not ready for cold weather. I’d also complain about the dark mornings because I do not like to run in the dark. I have been lucky these past couple of months to be able to hold off on my run until after I get the kids on the bus in the morning. This allows me to run in the daylight, which I am grateful for. I did break out my fall/winter running tote this morning just to look over my gear from last season. It was kind of fun since I got a couple of new items last year.
If we were having coffee…. I would ask you what is new with you? I’d ask you if you have any new gear for the colder weather? I’d ask you for tips for running in the dark. Do you have a headlamp?
Thanks for joining me this morning.
Until Next Time,
