Happy New Year! It’s the first weekend of the month, and that means it’s time to join my friends Coco and Deborah for the Ultimate Coffee Date. But hey, being that it’s New Year’s Day and all, I say pour yourself a glass of whatever you want and join along. I myself am cozying up to the fireplace with a nice cold glass of Sauvi B.
If we were having
coffee drinks, I would tell you I’m just as glad as the next gal that 2020 has come to an end. Global pandemic aside, 2020 was a bit of a shit year for me. Still, there were many positives throughout the year, and I choose to focus on those.
coffee drinks I would share for those of you who don’t know, we got a puppy! You might have seen just a few pics of her on my Instagram account. Just a FEW. She is a Blue Tick Coonhound with a little bit of Blue Heeler mixed in. She is a rescue from a shelter that benefits military veterans. We named her Blue (nothing to do with the breed), and she is as sweet as can be. She will graduate (I fully anticipate with high honors) from Beginner Puppy Training on Sunday. She seriously is the smartest and best-behaved puppy in the class! You can follow her on Instagram for a daily dose of cute!
If we were having
coffee drinks I would tell you I received my first Covid vaccine on December 19th and will receive the second in the two-shot series on January 9th. I had zero side effects from the first one; not even a sore arm. And much to many people’s surprise, I have yet to grow a tail or a third leg. Here’s hoping this nightmare comes to an end soon.
As I pour another
cup glass, I’d like to say that although I’ve dropped off of the social media train a bit, I’ve been keeping very active. I’m especially enjoying my walks with Blue. We take to the trails in the forest preserves that back up to our subdivision. Believe it or not, although we have lived here for over 27 years, I only started venturing out to the trails in the past few months. We came across this remnant of an ancient dinosaur just the other day. Hence the reason I haven’t spent much time alone back there.
And before I take my final sips, I want to take a moment to thank my friends in the online running community. A number of us bloggers from across the globe have been getting together virtually via Zoom, Instagram, and Messenger since the pandemic started, and I have to say, they are some of the very people who have kept me sane during what has been an incredibly stressful year. I am looking forward to seeing so many of them in real life when things go back to normal…whatever that might mean.
What would you share with me over

On my 2021 Race Calendar:
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
Let’s hope that changes soon!
