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


I runfess:  Earlier in December I ordered new Santa capris (affiliate link), but when they arrived, I noticed that one leg says HO! HO! HO! and the other leg says !OH !OH !OH. I went back to look at the picture on Amazon and sure enough it was as clear as day that the legs were different and I just hadn’t noticed. I runfess that I was blinded by the cuteness and didn’t carefully inspect the item before making my purchase.


I runfess:  I bought two copies of Run Fast. Eat Slow (affiliate link) cookbooks by Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky after eating marathon lasagna made from the cookbook. Originally, I’d purchased one for myself and one to give away, but quickly decided to use them both as gifts for the Cruiser and MRTT Christmas party gift exchanges. The plan was to buy myself a copy if I couldn’t steal one of the books back at one of the parties. At the Cruisers party, my friend Beth also brought a copy of the cookbook which I legitimately picked when it was my turn to select a gift or steal from someone else. No one tried to steal it from me and I didn’t have to steal the copy I’d brought, so everyone left happy!


I runfess:  Even though I now have a copy of Run Fast. Eat Slow, I haven’t tried any of the recipes.


I runfess:  I’ve eaten more than my fair share of my mom’s Christmas cookies this past week. When we first arrived at Mom’s house I was really good and stayed clear of the Christmas treats because I knew that once I started, the flood gates would open. She sent us home with a big plate of goodies that have been taunting me all week, and more than once, I’ve fallen prey to their seductive call.


I runfess:  Bill got me new Apple Airpods (affiliate link) from the Apple Store for Christmas. They work great and I love them, but I’m nervous to wear them in the dark early morning hours. I’m afraid if I lose one of the untethered earbuds that I won’t be able to find it even though I think they have some sort of tracking devise to make finding a lost one easier…

Look Mom, no earbud wires!

I runfess:  Even though I’m really excited to run in the New Day New Year 5K on New Year’s Day, I’m a little apprehensive about racing the morning after New Year’s Eve. Even though I don’t party on NYE, I do enjoy staying up to ring in the New Year and getting enough sleep is always my downfall.


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