Today, I'm runfessing over coffee. Let's get started!
|My screen saver was taken at the Top of The Rock!|
My favorite Starbucks mug was snagged on that trip as well.
I'd happily report my September running miles were 135 and cycling miles were 106. There were weekend slalom water skiing and a few swims in the mix as well. One triathlon too. It finally dropped below 70 for my morning runs just this week. Thursday it was a delightful 63 and on Friday a quite nippy 53. Fall, you have finally given us a little glimpse of days to come. I thank you.I'd runfess...
|September blessed us with some stunning sunrises and sunsets.|
I haven't read a book in ages. It's not that I don't want to. I once belonged to a book club and kept a whole stack by my bed at all times. Nowadays my eyes are so tired at the end of the day and one of them has been twitching for three months, which is not a vision problem. Pure stress they say. The twitch is not new. It's something I've had occasionally since my mid 20s. Once, it lasted nearly a year. Oh please, not this time!
You'd hear how I have no pace expectations at the Chicago Marathon. After the summer-that-wouldn't-let-go, I no longer even know what it is. I do very much want to beat my previous marathon time. That will be the goal that I line up with. Anything better than that will be a pleasant surprise and a huge reward for all that heat training.
|I have NO self control over a frosted shortbread cookie. NONE.|
Cooking has become how fast I can pop open the plastic container of a Zaxby's Cobb Salad. At least the chicken is grilled? Ohhhhh, and now that Panera's Autumn Squash soup has returned? I see very little cooking in the near future.
I'd tell you how (yet again) my beloved Amazon has screwed up an order. I recently ordered Tailwind -- you know, the endurance drink mix? Guess what I received instead? An iPad keyboard case. I don't even own an iPad. You figure it out. And I NEED that Tailwind!
