Oh Lordy, Lordy, December has come and gone and it is once again time to enter the runfessional! It’s been a productive month for me in so many ways–except when it comes to running…and blogging. I have been pretty much absent from social media this past month. Sometimes that’s a good thing. I’m linking up with Marcia’s Healthy Slice for another Runfessions session!
The last time I ran was during the Ragnar South Beach in November. That’s right, it’s been six weeks. Not good. But I also have to runfess that I don’t feel too bad about it. I was sick for a full two weeks after that race, and I have so much going on at the end of each year, it just didn’t happen for me. I’ve got some lofty running goals for next year. We’ll see how that works for me.
I runfess that I procrastinated more than I ever have this Christmas, literally sitting down at my computer on the 23rd and just click-click-clicking myself into debt. Hello, Amazon Prime! I had everything delivered to my door by Christmas Eve and all was good with the world. Now to wait for that credit card bill.
I must runfess, despite the fact that I haven’t been running, I’m about to sign up for my 3rd 2018 marathon and am also signed up for two halfs and a sprint tri. I’m thinking if I’m actually sign up for races, I will get my butt out the door and run.
That being said, I have to runfess I still have it as my goal to run all the Marathon Majors. This year I will run my 6th consecutive Chicago Marathon, and it’s obviously time to branch out. I was fortunate to get a spot in the Berlin Marathon, which will have me running marathons three weeks apart. Not ideal, but my only goal ever is to finish, and I think I can do that.
Last, I runfess I had the most fantastic trip to Las Vegas with my husband and boys earlier this month. Our youngest turned 21 in October and we were there to celebrate! We missed the girls, but the five of us had an amazing time. I’m not sure I got more than 10 hours’ sleep in the five days we were there. We did a little hiking and a lot of gambling, and had some amazing meals when we were there. I swear if I win the PowerBall this week I am moving there permanently. You know, for the mild winter temperatures!
How has your month been? Do you have anything good to runfess? Do you have your 2018 race calendar set? And most importantly…have you ever been to Vegas? What are your favorite things to do there?
