Today I’m joining the Ultimate Coffee Date for some catching up. It’s the ultimate coffee date – February edition! 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. Sadly, it’s the last of those beans, I really need to get my family to send me some more. I grind my beans by hand and use a french press for more of a mindful coffee experience.
I’d tell you that I signed up for a 50k in April and I’m pretty excited for it. I don’t have my training plan lined out yet. I’m planning to continue along the same lines as my marathon training with some back to back long runs mixed in. The race I signed up for is the Brazos Bend 50. I ran the 25k at this race last year and had a great time. This year should be no different… plus running later into the day I’m bound to see more alligators!
I’d mention that the hubs found a gently used pop-up camper for us. That means a lot more camping trips. While I do love to camp in the truck bed tent, the pop-up will give us more possibilities. Wouldn’t you know it… we’re planning trips to some trail races (and plenty of scuba trips too).
I’d tell you that I’ve got the volunteering bug. I volunteered after my last race and have already signed up to volunteer at 2 more races this month. It really is a joy to give back to the running community. To tell you the truth, it doesn’t make me sad that I earn racing credits while doing it either.
I’d ask if you how you were doing on your intentions or goals for the new year. I set a word of the year for 2018, and that is helping to guide some of my choices. I feel a little “off” without specific goals, so I have set some to focus on in February. One of them is to complete Rachel’s supermans-squats-twists challenge.
Finally I’d ask if you were watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, and if you were rooting for the Patriots, Eagles, or the commercials. I’m pretty luke warm on the teams playing, but I’m rooting for the Eagles to win. I’m also hoping the commercials are good this year.
Well, that catches me up…what would you tell me, if we were having coffee?
