Every now and then a coffee date is exactly what a girl needs.
Good morning and welcome to the first Ultimate Coffee Date Link-Up.
Order your favorite coffee or tea and maybe a pastry or scone too, sit down, take a deep breath and relax.
No rush. We have plenty of time.
First, I would say hi and I would ask you how you’ve been and what have you been up to.
If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you how excited I am to start coaching a Girls on the Run group to run a 5K in May! Their vision is a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. How cool is that? I can’t wait to see the faces of the girls crossing the finish line for the first time and possibly begin a lifelong love of running. This is my little way of giving back what running has given to me.
If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you I was bitten by a dog last week during a fun and I’ve never been so scared in my entire life. It was a dog on a leash but he was too big for the kid to control. Bit me right on the butt! I’ve never run home so fast and, it’s kind of funny now, but one of the first things I thought of was damn he’s going to tear my favorite Lorna Jane tights. That was on a Tuesday. I was supposed to go for another run on Thursday but I didn’t…out of fear. I’m running again and not fearful but there is one route near my neighborhood I will never run again. Have you ever been bitten by a dog or any other animal during a run?
If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you the strangest thing is happening. No, this has gone way beyond strange to creepy. Some guy has emailed me drawings he has done of me based on photos on my blog. This has happened twice and in the last one he included more than a dozen photos of me he has copied from my blog. Creepy right! If he does it again I will be contacting the police. Do you know if there is anything they will and can do?
If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you, remember the movie, Unbreakable, that I mentioned earlier this week, well, I won’t totally give it away but the winner won with a time of 15:07:04. In the process, he crushed Scott Jurek’s course record by nearly half an hour. To win, he had to beat ultra ultrarunners Anton Krupicka and Kilian Jornet. 100 miles in 15 hours is so unbelievably amazing and inspires me beyond words. Running is bringing me so much joy, happiness and peace of mind right now. How’s running going for you?
If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you, I need a haircut and I’m thinking about going shorter. My husband and son say the shorter the better. I’m thinking about something like this. I want a low maintenance style. What do you think? Should I do it? Bangs or no bangs?
Unfortunately it’s time for us to leave. Kids to pick up, errands to run, you know…life happens. I had a wonderful time. Make sure it’s on your calendar for us to meet again.
If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
