Today I’m joining Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner and Coco at Running With Perseverance for their monthly Ultimate Coffee Date linkup!  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. 


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I love celebrating Cinco de Mayo and last night didn’t disappoint. Bill and I have never gone out on Cinco de Mayo, but I’m not going to miss an excuse to eat Mexican food and drink margaritas or Mexican martinis! I’d frozen some leftover Mexican martinis last weekend so I got them out yesterday morning to thaw. We enjoyed them while making our fajitas and munching on chips and guac.


Once we were almost ready to sit down to dinner, I made us each a margarita. I promise fajitas were involved, my picture just didn’t turn out well because the refried beans looked rather, rather… unpleasant, shall we say.


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that yesterday afternoon, Bill gave me the flowers in the top picture “just because.” He’s definitely a keeper!


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I decided to sleep in and run later again today. It’s been several weeks since I met my running friends at 7 AM on a Saturday morning. I stay up too late for how early I get up all week long, so I’ve been sleeping in a little bit on Saturday mornings recently to try and catch up on my zzz’s. That’s going to have to end soon when it gets really hot.


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that some of my friends ran Ragnar Trail Richmond last weekend, and even though I had a blast last year running on our MRTT team with many of the same ladies, I experienced absolutely zero FOMO when looking at the pictures they were posting. When I got home from last fall’s Ragnar DC I was pumped to run another Ragnar; however, right now I have no interest and doubt I’ll run another one.


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that my next race isn’t until the Firecracker 5K on the morning of Independence Day. I think I’ll wear my blue skirt with white stars even though it rode up to my waist during the race last year. As long as I remember to pull it down when I see the race photographers I’ll be good! πŸ˜‰


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I recently discovered using fresh zucchini noodles instead of pasta. Can I just ask, “What took me so long to try them?”


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I really wanted to stay awake to watch the Nike Breaking2 attempt at breaking the two hour marathon, but couldn’t stay awake much longer than fifteen minutes into it…
