…and in no particular order.
I am thinking about running another full marathon next year. As most of you know, I really wanted to run Grandma’s Marathon again, but without the free lodging my Mom got us last year and hotels going for a good $200+ a night, well…that doesn’t look very do-able for our family’s budget next year. 😦
SOOO…I found a local marathon that is less scenic, but a nice flat course that I could possibly push myself to maybe PR? Who knows…maybe?
I am thinking its time to REALLY start researching ideas and plans for my dream of opening a restaurant. I know this won’t happen for another 10 years or so, but I really want to be ready. So I’ve picked up my pen and paper, put on my thinking cap, and have started a list of regions in the U.S. that have good wines, and the cuisine that pairs well with the wine. I’ve only just started this process, but I have to admit, it is FUN doing all the research.
I am thinking since learning to
hate embrace the added 5-8 lbs that have joined me since turning 40, I have also decided to fight back and turn that fat into muscle. I’ve gotten back on the running wagon, and have continued my strength training and yoga. Bye Bye Fat…and screw you, SCALE!
With that, I bid you happy National Coffee Day! Even though, well, I don’t drink coffee, LOL!!
What’s on your race schedule for the remaining of this year, and even next? Have you ever found yourself in a pinch when it comes to traveling for races? Do you drink coffee?
Happy Tuesday, y’all!
