It’s time to sit down once again with a beverage of your choice and chat – I’ll remind you that I don’t like coffee or tea so my drink will be hot chocolate. Let’s chat about things other than just running, cycling, training, and complaining about our most recent injuries. Sound good? I’ll go first…


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I’m super excited to have been been selected as a Pactimo ambassador and look forward to spreading the Pactimo love over the next year! My husband  has a closet full of Pactimo gear and turned me on to their gorgeous, high quality products when I started cycling with zeal a few summers ago.


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I registered for a 5K which will be held on Saturday, April 17th and will be my first live race since Thanksgiving 2019. I am beyond excited and can’t wait to see some of my running friends at the event.


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I had a lot of fun designing this wall collage for our basement family room. It’s been a long time coming after receiving a gift card to Board and Brush for Christmas 2019 which I didn’t get around to using prior to the pandemic. Frustrated, I just put the whole project on hold until I decided to make a paper filler to use until I’m comfortable going to the studio to make this plaque. I’m having the Virginia coordinates sign made by a young lady who has previously done several other projects for us.


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that this is the year that I do all of my renewals for my business – required biannually. My CPR, First Aid, and AED recertification is scheduled for Monday which will be live with a two person plus the instructor max. I will wrap up my CEC requirements via Zoom with the University of Virginia’s Running Medicine Conference next weekend. As an added bonus, there’s a “Lessons Learned – Everything Marathoning” Zoom meeting with Joan Benoit Samuelson and other experienced marathoners this Sunday afternoon and I can’t wait to join in on the call!


If we were having coffee…..
I’d tell you that I just got a spam comment to my 2018 post “What Happened to My Guns? I’m a big proponent of 2A, but these aren’t the guns I was talking about. Oh spammers, you do make us laugh. LOL


And finally, if we were having coffee…..
I’d ask if you have any real or virtual races coming up, and if you do, I’d wish you good luck and remind you to have fun!




Today I’m joining Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner and Coco at Running With Perseverance for their monthly Ultimate Coffee Date linkup which goes live the first Friday of every month.  Be sure to stop by their blogs for a cup of coffee and to say hello; and while you’re there, be sure to check out some of the other bloggers who are participating in the linkup.


  • Questions:
  • • Have you created a work of art at one of those popular paining or rustic board places?
  • • Do you try to stay CPR/first aid certified?
  • • If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
