It’s my second favorite time of the month on my blogging calendar–time to bare our
souls soles with our runfessions! Of course, my favorite time of the month is when Deborah and I host the Ultimate Coffee Date link up, which we hope you’ll come back for on March 4th.
Make sure you check out the other runfessions at the link up Marcia hosts, and since it’s Friday you can see what’s going on at the Friday Five 2.0 link up hosted at Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness.
I runfess that I won’t be running this weekend. And I’m not broken-hearted at all! We are enjoying spring skiing conditions in Park City. I’m so lucky my friend is happy to share her condo with us!
Last year we went on a colder January weekend.
I runfess that I bought new running shoes, but don’t need them. I know most runners can’t resist buying new running shoes, but I get confused when I have more than one or two pairs in rotation, and forget which shoes will need to be replaced when. But, I had a gift certificate to a running store that was about to expires, so I really had no choice. I also decided to get Mizuno Wave Rider 20s instead of the next model of Mizuno Wave Inspires, even though my Inspires have kept me injury-free through my long training runs.
Yeah, I love the color too.
I generally abide by the rule, If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but I’ve done well in Wave Riders before–including that time I wore them as new shoes in a race and they helped me set a PR.
I runfess that I wasn’t able to participate in this week’s Tuesdays On The Run link up, but if that genie is still granting wishes, I’d ask for a running service dog. If dogs can warn of impending seizures, I just know a dog could be trained to warn me when I’m about to overdo it and protect me from injury.
TL was no service dog, but always found my shoes for a walk.
I runfess that I may have tendinitis in my thumb from using my phone too much. Is it from keeping up with work emails on the go or trying to be more engaged on Instagram? I’ll keep that much of my runfession to myself. 😉
runfess confess that I didn’t like La La Land. I saw it with a friend, and we both think we must have missed something because we don’t get all the hype. It wasn’t a bad way to spend an afternoon, but Hidden Figures was much better. I’m sure the story was buffed and polished, but it’s still an eye-opening and inspiring story of the “Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped NASA Win The Space Race,” Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson. I never realized that “computer” used to be a job title, or that NASA had a team of human computers (mostly women!) who did complicated math calculations for the space program.
Will you be watching the Oscars this weekend?
