Today I’m linking up with Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice for my first ever Runfessions.  Be sure to check her out!

I’m adding a fun little twist by making this a group effort with Erin, Amanda, Angela, Jackie, and Kathy as we ride over to Annapolis together to run in tomorrow’s ZOOMA Half Marathon.

Let the runfessions and shenanigans begin!



Runfession –
a formal statement admitting that one is guilty
of a particular running crime.


Jackie runfesses:  I workout harder trying to get my sweaty sports bra off than I do on my run.

Angela runfesses:  Sometimes my sweaty armpit noises drown out the music on my iPod when I run.

Erin runfesses:  Sometimes I register for a race just so I can get a new outfit!

Kathy runfesses:  I continued to do my track workout when I had to pee, and even though I could feel a little trickle, I wouldn’t stop.

Deb runfesses:  My hubby and I once woke up to a tiny bit of snow on the ground on the morning of the Cherry Blossom Ten-Miler, so we went back to bed and skipped the race.

Erin runfesses:  I once bagged a race because I forgot my phone and didn’t have music to listen to.

Deb runfesses:  Half way to the Frederick Marathon, we stopped to get gasoline, but both my hubby and I had forgotten our wallets.  We had enough gas to get home, but not enough to continue to Frederick, MD and back so we had to miss the race.
