~ 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 life in general 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: As I put on a pink sports bra under my white shirt and it showed through, I though, “Nah, it’s 5 AM and it won’t get light until after I finish my run. Since no one will see me, there’s no reason to change.” Then I got the great idea to take a picture wearing my headlamp for the first time since the summer solstice… LOL


I runfess: My eating was starting to slip a little because when I’m not running, I don’t have to worry so much about what I eat since I won’t be out on the trail jostling my insides to the point that an accident is a foregone conclusion… if you get my drift. About a month ago, I jumped back on MyFitnessPal and started logging in my food. It’s amazing how much better I feel when I log my food, mainly because it forces me to pause and reconsider before shoving unhealthy food into my mouth.


I runfess: I mentioned back in the spring that in late December I signed up for the Empower Summer Camp which was to be held in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains in southwest Virginia. Not surprisingly, camp was cancelled due to concerns over the pandemic. I was both sad and relieved so when a virtual option for the camp appeared in my inbox, I jumped at the chance to sign up.


We received a variety of items as part of our swag…


So why am I runfessing this? I did not participate in a single online activity and have yet to try any of the items I received. I was with clients during many of the sessions; however, the sessions were available to watch later if we chose. Basically, I threw away the money I spent registering for the virtual camp…


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:
  • • Have you signed up for something that you blew off?
  • • When you workout in the dark and assume no one will see you, do you care about what you’re wearing?
  • • 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.
