I swear it was just yesterday that I was runfessing about my lack of running in June and here we are in July and I’m still not running much.
I must runfess that I have no real excuse not to run a lot of miles – my ankle/heel is probably 90% pain free and even more so when I massage it and foam roll. I’ve even done some icing lately after the few times I’ve run this month. I know, who am I?
I must also runfess that we are now down to 93 days before the Marine Corps Marathon and the last double digit run I did was the half marathon in New Zealand on July 1. Between work, the weather, my son’s econ class… I can’t seem to get my runs in. I really need to start training. OK, even more than that, I really need to start caring about training.
And while I’m runfessing about not running, I have to come clean that I totally used my son as an excuse not to run on Wednesday night. It looked like it was going to pour (and it did and I would have been soaked), so when he asked if he could get a haircut instead of going for a run, I said yes. Good mom, bad runner…
And I’m not sure this is a runfession, but I had to renew my driver’s license in person this week, for the first time in 12 years. And, thanks to all the work with Faster Way to Fat Loss, I actually weigh the weight that was listed on my old license. (And it was a total lie back then because I was 8 months pregnant with Shoo and weighed AT LEAST 50 pounds more than what my license said. I’m pretty sure the DMV person back then was too scared of the pregnant lady to question the number on the license.)
Finally, I must runfess that the new Skirt Sports (affiliate link) patterns for fall of 2018 are going to ALL end up in my house. The colors are AMAZING. I’ve done a really good job the last few seasons with limiting my purchasing, but this collection just makes me happy whenever I put it on. Both of my favorites, Temper Tantrum and Starlet, are based on previous patterns with different colors. I loved them then and I love them now in this season’s iterations. (But unlike my crazy Skirt Sports fellow ambassadors, I won’t be wearing Tantrum and Temper Tantrum together. In fact, one of the last themes for #31daysofSkirtSports is “mismatched” and I get hives just thinking about it. I’m definitely a Garanimals girl…) (I am a Skirt Sports Ambassador and 413MCMM will get you 15% off non-sale items. The link is an affiliate link which means I make a few $$ off your purchase. Using my code does not benefit me, only you.)
