Time is moving quickly, isn’t it? I’m just so grateful that the weekend is finally here!
Since it’s the first Saturday in November, it’s time to join Coco and Deborah for the Ultimate Coffee Date! While this is a running blog, sometimes it’s refreshing to just talk about everyday life! Let’s catch up!Grab a cup of coffee and catch up with the #ultimatecoffeedate linkup! Click To Tweet
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that I have been EXTREMELY busy lately, and it’s pretty overwhelming. The hours at work fly by, but I’m busy every single moment. It’s good, but a little grueling for me right now…way too many meetings! Then, of course, I’m still trying to keep physically active, plan NSBE activities, enjoy time at home, and squeeze in some social time …oh, and blogging! I’m really hoping that things wind down soon.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that I’ve been testing out some gear from ProViz Sports and so far so good! I have the Pixelite Performance Women’s Running Vest that I wore on my run a couple of nights ago, and the Pixelite Performance Women’s Running Tights that I need to wait for the weather to get a little cooler! The material is light and I can’t wait to see how effective they are when wearing them in the dark!
Today was a really stressful day…work is extremely busy right now and it’s challenging to balance it all. It feels like I’m running on fumes these days…but I’m glad I was able to make time for a 3 mile run after work! Instant stress reliever every time! Can you relate? I also wore my brand new @provizsports Pixelite Performance Running Vest! It fits great! I’ll let you know how well its reflectivity works at night as I test it out on the run in the coming weeks! #runhappy #sweatpink #RWNR #instarunner #runnersofinstagram
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that if you ever watched General Hospital back in the day…come back now! They are in the midst of a Tale of Two Jason Morgans and let me tell you, every episode is full of suspense and all the feels! The original actor who played Jason Morgan is back and I didn’t realize how much I missed him until now! I used to be really into the mob element of General Hospital until it got a little too ridiculous…but the writing has been great the past month and a half and now GH is must-see TV! I even got my sister to start watching again, lol!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that my blogging activity clearly hasn’t been as great this fall, but wouldn’t you know that I’m having the best traffic that I’ve ever had with nearly 14,000 page views? Well, apparently my Race Discounts page is traffic gold! And I will do a shameless plug here – I have access to these discounts due to being a Bibrave Pro Ambassador, and I will be back for 2018! I’ve really enjoyed being a BibRave Pro the past 2 years and have met some really cool people! This year I was able to run 6 races in DC, VA, NY, WA, and Montreal, not to mention I was able to review some great products from BUFF, OOFOS, RoadID, and Knuckle Lights! If you’re interested, applications are open until November 15! Let me know if you have any questions!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that I am still hunting for a spring marathon. I want to stay in the Northeast/MidAtlantic/DMV area…no cross-country or international trips for me next year! I’m targeting an April or May race…Coastal Delaware and Vermont City are at the top of my list right now! And my friend spoke so highly of Pittsburgh that it’s on my radar too! If you have any recommendations, let me know!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that next Tuesday is the return of Tunes Tuesday for the month of November! The theme for the ENTIRE MONTH is Current Jams! So as long as you link back to Kim, Steff, and me, you can link up with us on any day of the month! Just check out my Tunes Tuesday posts for inspiration! We’d really love for you to join us, we are working hard to grow, but it’s taking some time for us to really take off. Let me know if you have any questions!
What would you share with me over coffee? Are you getting ready for the holidays (I’m in denial!)?
