Welcome to Coffee Talk!
I'm joining in on the Ultimate Coffee Date and the Friday Five.
But first, coffee. Have a virtual seat, pour up a large mug, settle in and let's talk a while.
I'd tell you I set up small coffee bar in my kitchen. Being honest, what made me move my Keurig was the fact I realized the cabinets were hung slightly higher in this little nook than on the other side of the room. I can now open the top of my Keurig without sliding the machine out from underneath the cabinets. It's the little things.

You'd hear how it's going to be a fun water skiing weekend. Wendy and I connected through our running blogs several years ago. She had a picture of herself water skiing on her blog header back then and it immediately caught my attention. I was thrilled to find another woman who slalomed -- trust me, it's rare -- and was as crazy as me to be still doing so at our mature age. I'm not sure we can top the shenanigans from the first annual HoLottaSkiing but we'll certainly give it a try!
You'd hear how we high-tailed early Monday morning to North Carolina to see our grandson play in the World Series Championship. We watched the first games at home on Jock Jive Sports which is almost like being there. Almost. After going undefeated three games in, we felt they'd make it to the final round and we simply could not miss that. It was worth every mile driven to see them play three more amazing games and advance to the final. They had a disappointing loss and came away with 2nd place. Everyone is so proud of these fellas. Sadly, they are too young to understand what they've accomplished.

You'd see I'm sporting an elbow brace. It's time for another painful steroid shot in my left elbow. I have nobody to blame but myself. Seriously, what was I thinking doing all those push-ups? This isn't my first rodeo either. It took my right elbow a full year to heal and the doc says to expect the same for this one. I solemnly swear to never do another push-up ever again.
I'd ask if you were training for anything. I'm not. In fact, I'm not running much at all right now. I have absolutely nothing on my race calendar. I needed some downtime, both mentally and physically, and am taking full advantage. My current plan is to use August as my reboot month focusing more on cross training and pre-hab exercises with a little running thrown in. The month is going to be crazy busy though, so we'll see how that plays out. .
What would you tell me over coffee?
Be sure to stop in for coffee on Saturday and chat.
