This one is a freebie. It’s a pick your own topic Friday.
So here we go:
I was a French teacher for 22 years. I loved my job but decided to switch to a new discipline: technology. Don’t get me wrong, I love all things techie, but it would have been so nice to be a runner when I was a teacher.
2. RUNNING PLAN
I am planless and it’s killing me. I always plan everything especially running. I don’t know when and what my next half marathon is. As a result, I don’t have my long runs planned.
Speaking of half marathons, I am still eating like I am training for one. First, my training was the excuse. Then it was my birthday celebrations followed by my trip to Florida. Now it’s summer and I love ice cream. I am lucky with the help of genetics, I am still thin but my clothes are TIGHT and I think there’s at least an extra 5 pounds there somewhere (actually I know where – my stomach, butt & hips)
I was thinner when I started running. I had to give away those shorts in the photo below. Now I wear looser, longer running skirts. I am a faster and stronger runner (You can’t have everything…)
I work full-time and my weekends are precious. So far we have been lucky. The last few weekends, we have had gorgeous weather. It has rained everyday this week. I still managed to squeeze in 3 runs between the raindrops. But this weekend, the forecast is for sunny and dry. YAY!
In between, doing household chores, I plan to be running and boating.
It’s no secret, I Love New York. I try to go there several times a year.
I am going back next Thursday – Can’t wait! I think we are going to Staten Island.
I still want to run or race in NYC at some point!!
Happy Running! Have a great weekend!
