Wow I can’t believe it is March already! Welcome to the Ultimate Coffee Date! We had so many new friends join last month and I hope we have even more this time. Please join Coco, Lynda and me to sit down, catch up and dish about anything that’s going on in your life. Grab your coffee or tea and pull up a chair, stay awhile….
If we were having coffee, I would tell you… I just got back from a fabulous week in The Caribbean with my husband. In case you missed all of my IG photos, we had a few days in St. Thomas, St. Barts, Jost Van Dyke and San Juan. It was so nice to be away alone together for a few days and even better to be in the warm sun. Oh did I miss the warm sun. Sometimes you just need to feel the sand between your toes.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…I thought for sure I would come back to a Springtime Washington but obviously that’s not the case with another 8 inches of snow falling yesterday and freezing temps today. What happened to Global Warming? Just saying!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…This weekend is our 2nd Birthday party for our Moms Run This Town group. I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful I am that I started our chapter on a whim. We’ve grown to almost 500 strong. You’ve heard me gush about all the amazing friends I’ve made and how much these women have inspired me and I honestly don’t know what I would do without them all.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…my baby girl is turning 18 in a few weeks. How in the world did that happen? She’s grown into such a smart, beautiful, funny and kind young woman. I’m so proud of her. She will be attending Indiana University this fall and we are headed up to visit the campus tomorrow. It’s all a little surreal right now.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…I haven’t been able to run too much the last few months. This Plantar Fasciitus has been so hard to heal (pun intended). I never realized how painful this could be and how long it could take to heal. Sure I’ve been doing lots of spin, swim and weight training but it’s not the same as running. This week I think I’ve finally turned the corner and I am going to be slowly adding the miles back in. Which leads me to..
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…I will not be running the DC Rock n Roll half next weekend and for the 2nd year in a row I will be a DNS. I honestly don’t think that race is meant to be for me. It would have been pretty hard to train for with the winter we had because I hate the long treadmill runs. Even so, I so wanted to be there running it with my closest friends. Ok done feeling sorry for myself.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you..What I will be doing the next few weeks is working as hard as I can to recover and get those miles up because my friends and I are headed to Cape Cod in 8 weeks to run another Ragnar race and I couldn’t be more excited!
