I survived! I knew going into this fall that September and October were going to be insane. They did not disappoint! But it’s November now and with Shoo’s birthday on Halloween, the craziness ends. Time to take a deep breath and get everything under control. Since I actually have time to take a real coffee break, I’m joining Deb and Coco‘s virtual coffee date.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I was more sore after the Marine Corps Marathon than I have been after a race in years. Seriously, the lack of a bathroom on our main level darn near killed me. On the bright side, not only did I refuse to walk up and down the stairs to do anything for my kids, I made Shoo be my legs and sent him to get things for me. Thankfully, by yesterday, all the soreness was gone.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I haven’t done any exercise since MCM. Nothing. And I’ve eaten all of the Snickers. And most of the Reeses Santas. Because yes, when you buy your Halloween candy at 4pm on the day of, you get to give out Christmas candy for Halloween. What???
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my parents are visiting and we are all working hard. My dad and I replaced the storm window that gotten broken over a year ago. (I know.) And my mom fixed a burner on my stove. I feel like I’m living in an episode of “This Old House.”
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve decided not to run an ultra this winter. Even if I finally get to be pain free (I’m not currently), I don’t have time to train. Since it’s 24 hours of loops, I could still do it, but honestly, I have no desire to walk an ultra. None.At.All. Guess I’ll be revisiting that goal once I get my stupid foot healed.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m feeling a lot of FOMO about Ragnar Napa. I had a few offers to run it, but just could not be gone another weekend. But it’s fueling my need to run a Ragnar again next year. I’m targeting the Ragnar Minnesota race because I’ll already be in Wisconsin and can leave the kids with my parents. I want to do it as an Ultra – anyone want to join me???
I’m linking up with Deb and Coco for the Ultimate Coffee date. Have a great weekend!
