Today I’m joining the Ultimate Coffee Date for some catching up. It’s the first coffee date of 2018! So go grab your favorite beverage of choice and have a seat and let’s catch up.
I’m sipping on some coffee today. My brew for today is the Kansas City Dark Roast by the Roasterie. I picked some up when I went home over Thanksgiving… they really make some good coffee. I grind my beans by hand and use a french press for more of a mindful coffee experience.
I’d tell you that I am an ambassador for Trail Racing Over Texas. I ran 2 of their trail races last year and I just can’t say enough nice things about them. The encouragement and support that I felt from them while running (and not knowing them from Adam) was incredible. I’m really looking forward to working with them this year. If you are in Texas and interested in trail running… seek them out! They have a race distance for everyone… from 5k to 200 milers.
I’d mention that the Houston Marathon is NEXT WEEKEND. I can’t believe it is already here, the time FLEW between Chicago. Right now the forecast is calling for cold, low in the 30s/high in 50s and sunny. That’s some weather I can get behind!
I’d tell you that I still don’t have a clue what races I’m doing this year past January. After the Houston Marathon I have a trail race – Running The Rose planned… but beyond that it’s a blank slate, I have a couple of ideas… I just need to sit down and plan it out.
I’d ask if you were affected by the bomb cyclone, or the brutally cold temperatures. We had some sub-freezing temperatures last week, but we are warming back up. I recently purchased some Icelandic tights from Spandits! Since I live in Texas, I wasn’t sure that I really needed them, but I am sure glad I did. I wore them to work the day it stayed in the 30s and they kept me toasty. These are quite a bit thicker than regular thermal tights, and they really block the wind. If you’re interested, head over to spandits.com, spanditslove saves you 10% (be sure to tell them Vicki sent you).
Well, that catches me up…what would you tell me, if we were having coffee?
