It’s time to sit down once again over a beverage of your choice and chat about things other than just running, riding, and training. Won’t you please join me? I’ll go first…

 

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that the Washington Nationals won the World Series and I have never been so pumped and excited about a sporting event in my life! Life is good, but I am tired! The game went late on Wednesday night and by the time we watched the trophy presentation and the post game festivities it was 1:15 AM when we got to bed. With a 5 AM wakeup for a 6 AM client, I got 3 hours and 45 minutes sleep. Unfortunately, Thursday was so booked that I didn’t have time for a nap. Sheer adrenaline and Halloween candy kept me going until heavy rain and thunder storms put an early end to the trick-or-treaters and I was able to get to bed around 8:30 last night, and I got 9 hours of sleep!

 

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you I had a real live coffee/hot chocolate date with Kim from Running on the Fly last Friday. We were so busy gabbing that we forgot to take a picture during our two hours at Starbucks so I’ll just share this one from later in the day while we were enjoying lunch outside at Sweetgreen. Kim was in town for the Marine Corps Marathon which you can read all about in her recap here. To read more about our Friday fun, click here.

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that after meeting Pablo on Friday, Kim sent me a text on Monday letting me know that there was a new category 1 hurricane in the Atlantic named… wait for it… wait for it… Hurricane Pablo! I replied that Pablo’s zoomies resemble a hurricane (especially near the center of the eye).

Hurricane Pablo…

 

Versus Pablo’s zoomies…

 

I think Pablo was moving faster! 😂😂😂

 

 

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that speaking of Pablo, he’s been enjoying his own version of coffee dates during his two most recent visits. As we round the corner to the shopping center where our local Starbucks is located, he recognizes where we are and starts letting out the cutest little happy whines. He excitedly pulls on his leash and tries his best to patiently wait while either Bill or I go inside to get him a puppuccino.

 

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that my new washer and dryer were delivered and I no longer have sheets, long sleeves, and pants legs twisted into tight pretzels when they come out of the wash. I am thrilled, but I do miss my excellent upper body workout every time I do laundry. 😉

 

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that on Sunday afternoon after the rain swept through soaking the Marine Corps Marathon runners, the sun broke out and the sky turned a beautiful blue. Bill and I took a walk around 4 PM in the balmy 72° and enjoyed looking at the mediocre showing of colors on the fall leaves. Bill made up for the lack color by using the the sun to light up his pictures.

If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I’ve been having my blonde eyebrows tinted for years, but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I had my eyelashes tinted for the first time. Can I just say, “Game changer!” I may still have short stubby eyelashes, but they’re no longer the same color as my face making my eyes completely disappear when I’m not wearing mascara. I still need to wear mascara if I dress up and want to get all fancy, but for just work? It’s wash my face and go! Oh, and if an eyelash gets in my eye, I can now see it and get it out more easily.

Go to 3:10 in this video to see this girl’s before and after pictures.

 

If we were having coffee…..
I’d ask if you have a race coming up, and if you do, I’d wish you good luck and remind you to have fun!

Today I’m joining Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner and Coco at Running With Perseverance for their monthly Ultimate Coffee Date linkup which goes live the first Friday of every month.  Be sure to stop by their blogs for a cup of coffee and to say hello; and while you’re there, be sure to check out some of the other bloggers who are participating in the linkup.

 

  • Questions:
  • • Did you have many trick-or-treaters? ~ We had the fewest we’ve ever had… maybe twenty kids. 
  • • What do you have planned for this weekend?
  • • If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
