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


I runfess:  I have this hoodie in two colors. When I find something I like this much, I might buy a backup, especially if the item goes a sale!


I runfess:  Even though I do yoga several times a week to compliment my running, I don’t really consider myself a yogi; however, I couldn’t resist picking up this shirt at Target earlier this week. BTW, the colors in the photo are really off and the shirt is closer to the color of the yoga block.


I runfess:  Yesterday morning while running, I noticed a little knee pain and realized that I’ve been wearing my current Brooks Glycerin running shoes (affiliate link) since late last summer. I suspect I’ve got close to 500 miles on them so it’s time to hit up the running store!


I runfess:  I still haven’t made anything from my Run Fast. Eat Slow (affiliate link) cookbook by Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky; and I’m going to keep runfessing this until I embarrass myself to the point of making something… anything!


I runfess:  A few of the Cruisers and I plan to do a century ride this summer and I haven’t been on my bike since August… If my fingers freeze in mitten covered gloves when I run, I can’t imagine how cold they’d get gripping the handlebars. Of course, I have the option of riding my spin bike (affiliate link), but I haven’t been on it over a year…


I runfess:  I thought of a hilarious runfession one day last week and didn’t write it down, and now I have no idea what it was, so I runfess that my memory isn’t as good as it used to be. 🙁


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


  • Questions:
  • How often do you buy new running shoes? ~ Every 400-500 miles for me, but I often wait until I get a little twinge in my knee that reminds me it’s time.
  • How good is your memory? Do you have to make notes constantly so you remember to do stuff? ~ Mine used to be so good, but now…
  • 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.
