Things I am thinking about…

…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. ūüė¶

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.

CAPI 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!
