How is it already time for another Runfessions post?! I am joining in with Marcia to spill all the dirt re things running and fitness. So let’s get right to this September Runfessions shall we?
I Runfess…I happy to report that running and I have worked out some of our differences and we are getting along much better now. I feel much more positive about my running than I did in August and I am confident that I will slowly regain my pace. I did my first 10K of the year last weekend and it went pretty well! In fact, I just realized that I ran 58 miles in September and biked 53 miles. Have not seen those kinds of numbers in a while and I am feeling pretty optimistic about the fall running season.
I Runfess…I am getting pretty excited about my Ragnar Napa Valley race in November. We will be running from San Francisco to Napa which has to have some of the most amazing views around. Speaking of views, I snagged the runner 2 spot which means I will be running across The Golden Gate Bridge. It will either be the most amazing or most scariest run of my life. Maybe a little of both!
I Runfess…This whole pumpkin spice latte everything is just a little out of control (in my humble opinion). I believe there is now PSL deodorant. Why? Did you know that PSL does not have any actual pumpkin in it? I have a philosophical ban on pumpkin until October 1st. Sunday morning I will be ready to break out some pumpkin pancakes. My favorite Kodiak Cakes have a pumpkin flax seed version that are currently on their way from Amazon.
I Runfess…My swimming has kind of fallen by the wayside the last 6 weeks. It’s been so nice outside that I’ve been biking on the days that I usually swim. So I guess swimming will have to wait a few more weeks until it’s cold enough to go back inside.
I Runfess…I am really excited (and a little nervous) about having my first article published on the Women’s Running site next week. I mentioned to a few of you that I am going to be writing regularly as one of their bloggers. Hope you will check it out on Monday. Spoiler alert: it’s about running.
Tell me: What do you have to Runfess this month? Anyone else boycott pumpkin until October?
