~ Runfessions ~
A collection of statements admitting
that one is guilty of a variety of running crimes…
I runfess: I got so busy this afternoon working on a huge home project that I completely forgot I’d set my Runfessions to post at 8 PM. Thinking that it was set to post at 9 PM, I pulled out my laptop to wrap up my post only to see that it was too late and Runfessions had posted ten minutes earlier. 🙁 I quickly pulled it back down leaving my readers to a 404 Not Found Error if they clicked on their email generated link. For that, I’m sorry!
I runfess: As I mentioned on my Race Linkup on Monday, I’m in full planning mode for my big 60th birthday weekend on the Outer Banks and I’m so excited. My Cruiser and MRTT girlfriends and I will be running in one or two of the many races in the OBX Marathon Race Series. My heart desperately wants to run the full marathon, but my brain is reminding it that my spine and sciatic nerve could get very angry if I tried. I’m nervous about being jealous that I can’t run the full if my friends do, but I will put on my granny panties and deal with it. Who am I kidding, I’ve never worn granny panties – I wear bikinis or thongs.
I runfess: Just in case my heart wins and I do run the full, I just looked up my 2018 BQ time for a 60-year old female and it’s 4:25:00…
I runfess: I have been so sloppy with my eating this week. What’s with that? I’ve craved sweets and have snacked after dinner – two things that can derail anyone’s healthy eating habits. I’ll be the first to admit that I have a sweet tooth a mile long, but I can usually rein that bad boy in. And snacking after dinner? I rarely do that! Why am I all of the sudden so out of control? I think it’s time for MyFitnessPal to become my best bud for a few weeks…
I runfess: My incredibly cool muscle capris that I mentioned on last month’s Runfessions arrived from Amazon on Tuesday. I plan to wear them on runs and embarrass certain friends who prefer sparkle skirts. By the way, “Do you think these capris make my Glutes look big?” How about those defined quads? 😀
Ahhh yes, it feels good to get another set of runfessions off of my chest. See you next month in the runfessional.
- Ladies: do you wear granny panties, bikinis, or thongs?
- What do you think of my new capris?
- What are your runfessions?
Today I’m linking up with Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice for her monthly Runfessions linkup. Be sure to check out her blog and those of the other great bloggers linking up.
I think your birthday weekend getaway sounds fantastic no matter which race you run. Those are super cute leggings 🙂

I’m really loving your new capris from Amazon! I swear, you can literally find anything on that website!!

Thank you! I think they’re fun, too!
I think you need a marathong! I saw them at a race expo.
I need those capris to wear to my daughter’s track banquet and embarrass the heck out of her. Thanks for playing!

A marathong? Oh my! My running shorts all have liners so I’ll pass. 🙂
I loathe anything around my waist, so no granny panties; I also have an aversion to wedgies, so no thongs. I’m fun, right?
Those tights are hilarious! Looking forward to hearing your friends’ reactions!

HaHa! I only wear a thong if I see panty-lines through my pants. I suppose I dislike panty-lines more than wedgies! 😀
Those are some crazy tights! I’m a bikini-style gal.

Thanks, I’d had my eye on them for a while.
Bikinis all the way! No matter how old I get, granny panties will not find their way in my undie drawer! Btw…daaaamn girl, you don’t look any where close to 60!
Those capris are the bomb.com! Love it!

Those capris are too cool! I can’t wait to hear what kind of reaction you get! Granny panties………I just can’t – LOL! Have a great weekend!

Thank you! Perhaps I’ll have to write a post just on the comments I get! 🙂
Oh gosh! NO granny panties for me EVER! I do the bikini-cut or thongs, but I simply cannot get comfy in something that hangs below my tush and nearly clears my bra line LOL

HaHa! I know, right? Eew!
Your birthday weekend sounds like a blast!! And those tights
I know! I can’t wait, but since my birthday isn’t until mid-November, I don’t want to wish the summer away! 😀
I like the capris! And the bikini/thong comment made me laugh! I wear hipsters.

On Wednesday, I posted Obscure Words Runners Can Appreciate and on Friday I joined in on the runfessions fun with Runfessions Of A Distracted Blogger and Conflicted Runner. […]
LOL – I definitely do not wear granny panties, haha!!
Those capris are cute – I bet you get some reactions when people see you wearing it!

I’m glad you like my new capris – I think they’re fun! When I mentioned that I was going to order them some of my friends thought I was nuts! 😀

I actually started it last week by taking pictures for the post and I hope to have it up later this week, perhaps on Wednesday. Stay tuned! Also, time permitting, Friday I’ll be joining Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice for her monthly Runfessions linkup. […]
