It’s the last Friday of the month so that means one thing. It’s time for the August Runfessions with Marcia. It’s time to go summer! A monthly post to bear all things running or anything else we need to get off of our chests. Let’s get right to it shall we?
August Runfessions Time To Go Summer
I Runfess…I have probably run the fewest miles this summer of any that I can remember and I am okay with that. I complained about the heat and humidity enough so that you all know that already. Schools have started, days are getting shorter. Sure we had some fun in your warm sun and your tan lines but let’s not over stay your welcome. It’s time to go summer.
I Runfess…I appreciated the break from long runs and now I am feeling very ready to take them on again. I am dreaming of cool morning runs followed by warm baths and hot coffee. Who is with me here?
I Runfess…I am getting excited about fall and winter racing. I have a few 10k’s and a 15K on my fall schedule and 2 half marathons on my early 2020 calendar so far. I think one of the bonuses about paring down my running this summer is that I am truly excited to start up again. I don’t feel as burnt out as I have in past years. I suppose that is the point of an off season. It makes you hungry to come back.
I Runfess…I am pretty much eating and drinking my way through Napa this weekend and I don’t expect to feel guilty about it at all. I know I will get back to my regular schedule next week. As my favorite Peloton instructor Denis says, “Life is much more fun when you participate in it”. A wise man he is.
That’s all I’ve got to Runfess and Confess today! Mark your calendars for the September Ultimate Coffee date next Friday. Hope to see you there. Happy long weekend friends!
