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


It’s time again to join in on the fun and clear my conscious of recent running, biking, fitness, nutrition, and because of the times, grooming related faux pas. I know I’ll feel better when I’m done, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll give you a laugh or two in the process!


Desperate times call for desperate measures so at least for this month, I’m adding a new fession – introducing groomfessions


I groomfess: My eyebrows are getting blond and in desperate need of a tint. They’re so blond that they pretty much match the color of my skin and I share the look of a bored toddler who shaved off her eyebrows. Believe me, it’s a better look on the toddler.


I groomfess: My dark brown gel polish on my nails has grown half way out on eight of my nails and flaked completely off of the other two. I just don’t have it in me to soak the polish off like my manicurist does at the salon. Seriously though, why do I even care since I rock purple nitrile gloves (affiliate link) on the rare occasions I leave my house.


I groomfess: My hair has gotten too long and lost any semblance of shape. My bob has turned into a box.


I groomfess: These days I consider myself dressed up whenever I put on a bra and I don’t think I’ve worn pants other than capris, shorts, or pajama bottoms since March 11th.


I runfess:  Remember when I was excited to change up my running log to The Complete Runner’s Day-by-Day Log (affiliate link) at the beginning of the year? So far I’ve logged in lots of walks and bike rides, but only three wannabe runs – walks with a few run intervals thrown in and those were Sunday, Tuesday, and this morning. Hopefully, there will be lots of new running entries as I slowly make my comeback to running in the upcoming weeks.


I eatfess:  Last Runfessions I admitted that I had been a little looser on my nutrition during my birthday to New Year’s time frame and needed to buckle down. I got very focused and got back to better eating habits which lasted through Easter. It’s time for this old girl to get focused, again.


I cookfess:  I give up! If I still haven’t made anything from my Run Fast. Eat Slow (affiliate link) cookbook during my extra time while staying home during this pandemic, it’s not going to happen. So despite me saying that I’m going to keep runfessing this until I embarrass myself to the point of making something, this is the last time I’m bringing this up. 😉


There you have it, my most recent runfessions; and you can bet that it feels good to get another set off of my chest! See you next month in the runfessional.


  • Questions:
  • • What are your groomfessions?
  • • If you’ve had a prolonged injury in the past, how did you make your way back to running? Walking with run intervals? Very short runs? Something else?
  • • 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.
