It’s that time again. The last Friday of the month. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
1. I runfess…
You how they say don’t go to the grocery store when you’re hungry. Well, don’t go to Target after a long run when you are half frozen.

Well, at least it was on clearance and I had a cartwheel coupon.
2. I runfess…
Remember how I said I loved my FitBit because it made me walk more. I used to try to get to 10,000 steps everyday.
Well, the newness has worn off and now I pretty much only get 10,000 steps when I do a long run (like on Sat.). I even forgot to put it on on Sunday but I didn’t move much anyway.
3. I runfess…
After all those holiday parties and Christmas cookies, I vowed to cut back and eat healthier (and save $) in January. Besides when I go to Florida in a week, there will be a lot of eating and drinking going on with friends (and I will be going all out.)

I went out to dinner this past week three nights in a row. My bad.
4. I runfess…
I work several Saturdays during the year proctoring law school entrance exams. Though I hate to work 6 days a week, I justify it by using this extra money for race entry fees.
Dates for 2015-16:
- December 5, 2015 – EAU Palm Beach Half weekend
- February 6, 2016 – Sarasota Music Half weekend
- June 6, 2016.
- September 24, 2016.
- December 3, 2016
I just signed up for a fall half marathon.
Guess when? Yup. September 24, 2016. At least, I had a 10% coupon code.
5. I runfess…
I have gotten spoiled by either running a race or having a running partner for part of all my long runs. Thanks Judy
This part Saturday was no exception. I ran 6 miles by myself then Judy came to run the final 6 with me. I usually run slower the second half of my runs so it works out fine. However, it was so cold and windy and we were running uphill that I couldn’t hold the slower pace. I wound up running the last 3 miles by myself. Sorry Judy!
I looked back at one point and couldn’t see Judy.
And for extra measure…
6. I runfess…
I can’t wait to leave the frigid Northeast and run in Florida. I am excited for my half marathon…
or maybe it’s because I want to wear my latest running purchases? (Yes, Sunshine State, please warm up!)
Since it is also Friday, I am linking up with the three DC area bloggers Mar at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC for their Friday Five linkup.
Happy Running! Anything to Runfess?
