~ 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 conscience 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!


I runfess: Just as I was putting the finishing touches on my Ultimate Coffee linkup, I realized that it’s time for Runfessions and our coffee date isn’t until next week. Talk about throwing a post together in short order!


I groomfess: Desperate times call for desperate measures so for one more month, I’m continuing with my newest fessiongroomfessions


I groomfess: Nothing new has changed with my blond eyebrows, but I finally managed to remove what little was remaining of my dark brown gel nail polish without tearing off the top layer of my nails. My hair has gotten so long that I can put it up in a ponytail without using clips to hold the sides up so that’s a good thing; however, it now wants to flip up on the ends when I wear it down so I’ve got this 1960’s flip happening.


I runfess: I’m having trouble getting out very early for my walks in the mornings. When I’m running, I get up and head out without procrastinating, but since I’m still injured and not walking, there’s a whole lot of procrastinating going on. I’m sure the return of heat and humidity will motivate me to get out earlier.


I bikefess: I hadn’t ridden my bike since late last October; however, just in the nick of time to avoid having to make a bikefession, my neighbor Betsy asked if I wanted to ride with her. Say what? I didn’t even know she rode! We rode this morning and already have dates set up for next week!


I workfess: Northern Virginia is supposed to be moving into phase 1 of the corona virus reentry plan tomorrow, I think… I say that because the rest of Virginia moved into phase 1 a couple of weeks ago, but with living in the DC Metro area I hear about DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia’s phasing in and don’t always remember which jurisdiction is doing what. I do know that Northern Virginia’s gyms can start holding classes outside tomorrow.


I eatfess or my pants are too tightfess: It was a rude awakening when I put on my Nike running shorts for the first time last week. My winter uniform of capris were too forgiving!

Goodbye Freshman 15
Hello COVID 19


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:
  • • Has your state entered phase 1, phase 2? 
  • • What motivates you to get out and exercise early? Weather, work schedule, meeting friends?
  • • 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.
