I am looking to do some additional fun things with my blog, and I figured The Ultimate Coffee Date would be a good place to start. Hosted by the bloggers at Got2Run4Me.com and ConfessionsofaMotherRunner.com, this monthly link-up is the first Saturday of each month. So, I know I’m a little late to the date, but I didn’t want to wait till next month.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about the two races I just ran. Running is such a big part of my life that normally there’s some kind of recent running-related news to share. I usually don’t do races quite this close together, but I just did the Run, White & Blue 5K on Thursday and then the Mike Sterling Crab Derby 10K on Saturday.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about the new bike I just got that I’m learning to ride. My boyfriend Mike has helped me learn how to ride my new road bike, which has a 49-centimeter frame and 26-inch wheels. Being only 5 feet tall, I have had to work on getting on and off. I just started yesterday, and I’m already improving. Yesterday, I rode by our house over and over, practicing, and today we rode to Rise Up Coffee.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m running the Bottle & Cork 10 Miler next weekend. I’m confident that I can finish, but don’t know how I’m going to do time-wise. I haven’t done a 10-mile race since March (*Update: Somehow I forgot I ran a 10-mile race in June*) and my race times haven’t been super fast — the heat’s having an impact here — but it should be a fun time, and Mike is planning to go as well as some friends.
