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


I runfess:
  Sometimes I can be cheap… My knees started bothering me about four months ago and I couldn’t understand why they would both start bothering me at once. My shoes were ready to be replaced so I thought that might be the problem and bought new ones. That didn’t help, but then I remembered that I’d run out of my Move Free Joint Health supplement (affiliate link) and, being cheap, hadn’t replaced it. I bought more, started taking it again and after about four days, voila, no more pain!


I runfess:  I’m so careful about putting sunscreen on my face, arms and torso, but not as good about making sure my legs are completely slathered. After having a place removed from above my knee on Monday resulting in a 2.5-inch incision, I will be better about it in the future.

I runfess:  I’m kind of enjoying the extra sleep I’m getting this week while I can’t run, but sure do miss my running friends. Speaking of my running friends, Lupe and Tracy stopped by on Wednesday with treats for the invalid and we had the most wonderful visit!


I runfess:  I’m really depressed about missing the Army Ten-Miler next weekend. 🙁 I’d planned to run it with Jess, my son Daniel’s girlfriend, but I’m sidelined from running until the week after the race. It’s a race I’ve never run and I was really looking forward to running this local iconic race for the first time.


I runfess:  After this little blip, I’m more than a little nervous about meeting my goal of PR’ing at the OBX Half Marathon. Training was going fantastic and I was starting to hit all of my goal paces. Time will tell as to whether or not I can get right back into running where I left off, or if I’ll be back behind the curve when I resume running just five weeks before the race. Either way, I plan to have fun on my girls’ weekend getaway!


I runfess:  I haven’t ridden my bike since mid-August…


Ahhh yes, it feels good to get another set of runfessions off of my chest. See you next month in the runfessional.


  • Questions:
  • What supplements do you take that you feel really make a difference?
  • Are you good about using sunscreen?
  • What are your runfessions?
