I haven’t joined in on the Ultimate Coffee date in a while, so I thought I’d jump back on that bandwagon. However, I don’t post on the weekends, so I’m combining Friday Five and Coffee. Sounds like a perfect combination to me. Anyways, I’m joining up with my friends Deborah and Coco for a virtual coffee date (they are both local to me – I should meet up for a real coffee date…) I’m also linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for Friday Five 2.0.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m suffering from a huge case of FOMO. I really want to be running the Utah Valley Marathon (half) with some of the other bloggers that are going. I even went so far as to look at plane tickets, but getting to Salt Lake City from DC? Hella expensive and super inconvenient. (Want to go?

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my 11 year old joined us to run this week. He’s a soccer player, but not much of a distance runner. He ran two miles with me and only walked a couple of times. Hopefully he’ll continue to join me. He wants to try out for track (the shorter distances) and I want him to try out for Cross Country. Either way, running has been an awesome way to spend some time with him.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that it’s been a rough few weeks. Lots going on here including some stressful kid stuff (that whole “bigger kid, bigger problems” is so true. I long for the days where I worried about if they were pooping and peeing enough.) I’ve been staying up way too late and it’s starting to catch up to me. Thank God for coffee, I guess.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I’ve started making my coffee by the cup, but I don’t own a Keurig or other single coffee maker. I use this little plastic cone that I put a filter and coffee in and then pour the hot water over. I’ve done it for a few weeks now and it consistently makes the strong coffee I love, so I’m thinking of upgrading to the one that doesn’t require filters (affiliate link). I can totally justify it because it’s better of the environment, right???
Finally, if we were having coffee, I’d tell you that we figured out our Tuesdays on the Run topics for the month of February. Here are the topics and of course, I can’t resist commentary.
2/7: Winter scenes from my run – I can tell you mine will be grey. It’s been warm this winter, but so dreary.
2/14: Stuff I love about running – Everything. I love everything.
2/21: If you had 3 running wishes, what would they be? I bet you can figure mine out PDQ.
2/28: Rate your running month (this seemed popular in January, so we’ll keep it going as long as you like!)
So, we’ll see you there, right???
Happy Saturday! What would you share with me if we were having coffee???
