September was a whirlwind month for me. I’m still trying to recover – and October is not exactly laid back either. I’m pretty sure that I have coffee running in my veins at this point. So, it seems appropriate to jump in on Deb and Coco‘s coffee date.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I LOVE working for ZOOMA and the other project I took on. But going up to 30 hours a week of working has been quite a shock to my system. Something had to give and it feels like the blog has taken the brunt of that. I hope to get back to commenting and responding once Amelia Island is done.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m nervous about the Marine Corps Marathon. I’ve had training issues in the past, but I’ve always had a good half marathon base. I really feel like I’ve lost that at this point. I have a plan, but it’s somewhat unorthodox and hinges a lot on getting back to 5-6 days per week of running. I’m *almost* there, but I’m also trying not to hurt myself. I feel like I’m walking a tightrope right now between trying to get ready for the race but not come back too fast.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I missed my run the other day because I had to rescue the roaches from an ant invasion. Yes, really. Also, I bet you didn’t know you could buy roaches from Amazon. Boys should come with warning labels…
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that in addition to everything else, fall brings both boys’ birthdays. One of them turns 17 this year. I’m pretty sure I’m not a day over 24, so how can that be? I certainly don’t feel like I’m approaching a big round number. And I certainly should not be having my 30th high school reunion this year.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m over the summer weather. I’m ready for fall. I want to make soups in my crockpot and wear sweatshirts and leggings when I’m working. And I specifically want to have cool weather for MCM. Seriously, I want to have throw aways that I don’t throw away for a few miles. Just sayin.
I’m linking up with Deb and Coco for the Ultimate Coffee date and with Running on Happy for Friday Five. Have a great weekend!
