~ Runfessions ~
A collection of statements admitting
that one is guilty of a variety of running crimes…


I runfess:  I do not wear underwear under my running shorts that have built-in underwear, but learned that some people do. 

I runfess:  I am not looking forward to the colder weather. As much as I love snow, and running in the absence of the heat and humidity, my fingers are cold just thinking about the first sub-60’s morning when even though I’m still in shorts and a tank, my fingers will freeze without gloves.

I runfess:  I’ve been feeling a little meh since Ragnar DC and have been taking some time off from running – so much in fact that I’ve only run once since my final Ragnar leg on Saturday afternoon, September 17; and I’m okay with that.

I runfess:  While unpacking from Ragnar, I threw all of my Ziplock bags (labeled Deb’s fuel, Deb’s night gear, etc.) away because I’d decided I was finished with Ragnar races. Two days later I was wondering which Ragnar I should run next! πŸ˜€ 

I runfess:  Somedays I’d rather just run alone later in the morning than to get up at 4:30 AM to meet my running friends at 5:30. Since I really, really miss them, I’ve got to get back into the early morning habit.


I runfess:  My friend and I yelled at a biker on Saturday when he chose to pass us on the W&OD Trail even though another biker was passing runners coming toward us. The two bikers met precariously close to each other and it wasn’t safe for anyone involved.

I runfess:  Despite the above runfession, I’m considering getting a bike…


Ahhh yes, it feels good to get another set of runfessions off of my chest, especially since it’s has been a year since I last joined in on the fun.


  • Questions:
  • What are your runfessions?
  • Do you wear underwear under your running shorts that have built-in underwear?
  • Are you racing this weekend?
