January Coffee Date

wp-1472756999291.jpgToday I’m joining the Ultimate Coffee Date for some catching up!

If we were having coffee, you would notice that I’m drinking tea.  I gave up my coffee addiction several years ago.  I usually drink a cup of yerba mate in the morning and then a cup of green tea. Every now and then I indulge in coffee… but it is just one cup vs. the pot I used to drink.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m getting very excited about the Houston Marathon.  It is only 8 days away… and I am ready to run!  I’ve had a great training cycle, and I’m ready to put the training to the test!

If we were having coffee, I’d probably tell you that I’m pretty stressed out about the weather for the marathon.  It is currently in the 30’s here in Houston, this morning was in the 20’s with a real feel of 11, but the forecast is jumping all over the place.  I’d be happy with temps in the 50’s… we shall see.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I really don’t know what I am wearing on marathon day.  I thought I had  my shoes down, but they started hurting my feet on my last long run.. I loosened them up and got through the rest of my run, but now I’m thinking… did I tie them too tight or are they just uncomforatble…

If we were having coffee, I’d mention that Meb will be at the race expo from 4-5 pm on Saturday… I was planning on running the 5k that am, picking up my bib and heading home to rest… but now, who knows!  This definitely is a plan changer.

Well, that catches me up…what would you tell me, if we were having coffee?


I’m linking up with Got 2 Run 4 Me, Fitness Mom Wine Country, & Confessions of a Mother Runner for the Ultimate Coffee Date!

    I would tell you (over coffee….or, for me, chai latte’) that if you have a chance to meet Meb, go for it! He is the nicest, and most down-to-earth guy. And, he’s SO humble and genuine.
