It’s the last Friday of the month, which means it’s time to come clean with a few runfessions. Thanks so much to Marcia for giving me this opportunity to cleanse my
soul soles and start November with a clean slate.
Marathon Runfessions. If you saw my latest Weekly Wrap, you know that I am toying with the idea of entering the lottery for the 2017 Chicago Marathon. I runfess that if I really wanted to run a marathon I’d enter the MCM lottery–or do the 17.75K race that rewards you with a guaranteed entry to MCM. But I’m not. As much as I love running in my home town, it’s my love of running in Chi-town that’s making me crazy.
If you are running MCM this weekend, watch for the MRTT cheer stations in Crystal City, and let me know your bib number so I can watch for you!
Indoor Cycling Runfessions. As much as I love Revolve, I
runfess spinfess that I am excited to try a new indoor cycling studio next week–CycleBar. They are supposed to have high-tech classes at a more reasonable price than other popular studios. While anyone can sign up for a free class, they scheduled a special free session for my Moms Run This Town group, so I will be trying it out with other running friends.
Hell Week Runfessions. This week is “Hell Week” at Orange Theory Fitness, which means that each workout has a hellish theme, and if you sign up and make it to (complete?) five classes you will earn a special t-shirt.
I runfess that I was excited to hear about this non-running challenge. Now that there is nothing left on my 2016 race calendar, I am ready to mix things up. Come back Monday to see if I survived!
Halloween Costume Runfessions. Speaking of Halloween, I runfess that I have no desire to don a costume and participate in a Halloween fun run. I won’t run in a tutu either. It’s just not my thing.
My pumpkin-carving skills are nothing to envy!
Pumpkin Carving Runfessions. Still on the topic of Halloween, I
runfess confess that I have not bought any pumpkins to carve. I loved carving pumpkins with the kids, and I love roasted pumpkin seeds, but I can’t get into doing it on my own. We’ve got spooky decorations up and will give out candy, but there won’t be a jack-o-lantern on our front step. (Do you know the story of Pumpkin Jack? It’s one of the stories behind Halloween.)
Are you dressing up for Halloween?
Are you carving pumpkins?
Have you heard of CycleBar?
