Coffee sippin’ and Runfessions

Yum, coffee sippin‘, does it get any better?  The hubby found a new creamer for me to try made with real almond and coconut cream.  It is tasty you should try it!  Well now that we have our coffee I will runfess I am also having some of those fun graham cracker sticks and I am jabbing them inside of the peanut butter jar.  Don’t tell!

So, we are coffee sippin’ and I want to share some exciting news.  My son FINALLY got married last Friday!  OMG!  I was beginning to wonder if it was going to happen!  It was just a small justice of the peace style wedding but he looks so handsome and happy walking around with his wedding band on.  You know he is mine, just look at the hair!  I runfess, his man bun usually looks better than my running bun.  We are busy planning the baby shower and you can check out my board on Pinterest.  Feel free to send me some pins- we are over the moon for this baby!

I have so enjoyed my time away from work.   It would be nice if I did not have to return but that is moat likely some time towards the end of April.  The FREEDOM has been wonderful and I have never felt so relaxed !  In fact, I will runfess that all my body parts have relaxed.  If you read my Best Damn Race recap you know exactly what I mean.  I can’t run even 3 short miles without taking a potty break.  Really?  The upside is I do feel skinny.

I runfess that I have no big races planned until the Utah Valley half.  I am kind of happy about that!  There are a few 5K’s and such but no big miles.  I feel like my pace is off, my tummy is definitely off and I need to get it together.  Funny, I thought all this time at home relaxing would make the running easier and instead I have just slowed down.  Well, except for my colon……  Enough potty talk for today!

March has been a blast with spring training, Monday morning yoga, kayaking with Wendy, running with Tricia and a fun day at the zoo!  I plan on traveling to Georgia for a few days of fun with my BF Kitty.  I will take advantage of those hills in her neighborhood for a couple of my runs!  My coffee sippin’ has come to a finish and I appreciate you stopping by!

Leave a comment below if you would like a free entry to the Utah Valley half.  You can use it for any distance.  I have one entry become available I hate to have it go to waste!

Thought for April:  You always have time for the things you put first.

Any runfessions this month or are you just sippin’ coffee?  Do tell!





I am linking up with Marcia for Runfessions and Deborah and Coco for the Ultimate Coffee date- join us!

    By the looks of her parents, I suspect baby Luna is going to have one helluva great head of hair! Let me know what days you’ll be in Georgia and I’ll give you some hill workouts. 🙂

  4. Congrats to your son! A runfession for me would be that I did less than 15k of running this month…and I’m actually okay with it!

  6. How you guys run in that heat all.the.time is beyond me. I knew there was a reason I didn’t take up running until after we left TX!

    There are some really young grandmas in our group; congrats!

  9. I can attest to that amazing head of hair you have. And it didn’t even seem affected by the Florida humidity. Can I say jealous?

    I have been out of the loop… congratulations on the baby and the wedding! How exciting!

    Fill me in…why have you been out of work?
    Sorry to hear about the bathroom issues. Thanks must be annoying.

      Nice to see you! I took some sick time off from work due to hypertension and gave myself some time to process the passing of my mom. It has been so nice to be home for a bit! Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Teresa says:

    I giggled about your son having a better man bun than you! He’s kind of got that Fabio look going with the breeze blowing and all 🙂 Congratulations and can’t wait to see Grandma Skippy with baby Luna!

    Congrats to your son! They do look so happy! Ugh, I know I will have FOMO over Utah but since I just added Denver May 21 my legs are saying “please have mercy” over that course. As a coach, don’t you think that downhill can be harder than people think?

  17. Oh, Baby Luna….so many of us are excited for her arrival 😉 Fortunately, I don’t have the “solid” potty stops like you mentioned, but I have to pee every 3 miles it seems (what’s up with that???). If I get the slightest (like a mili-second of a trace of a thought), I need to find a “stop” pronto. I know…first world probs. But UGH.

  18. Congratulations to your son on getting married! How exciting he and his wife have a baby on the way!! I don’t have any big races until Magnolia Meltdown half in May. I’ve raced 2 weekends in a row and I’m pretty tired! Hope everything goes smoothly returning to work!

    Have you done Utah Valley Half before? I was looking at it a month ago and the course looks pretty awesome! I am hope to knock Montana, Utah, South Dakota, and Iowa off my list this year.
