Happy Friday! Well it’s finally that time of the year again. The holidays are here and it’s going to be a whirlwind of activity from now until the end of the year.
As usual, since it’s the last Friday of the month, I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions. Let’s get this party started!
I runfess that I always enjoy Black Friday from the comfort of my couch
Nothing against anyone that braves the crowds in the stores on Black Friday (I salute you!), but I just can’t do it. I don’t have the patience to deal with the crowded parking lots and stores. I can get most, if not all, of the same sales online so I have no problem shopping online on Black Friday morning with a cup of coffee and my credit card 🙂
I runfess that I’m glad I upgraded my OTF membership
I went back and forth on this decision. Although I love the classes, the studio and the instructors, it is costly. But then I really put everything into perspective. For starters, I cancelled my gym membership so I am saving money there. In addition, I’m responsible with my money – I put money in my savings account every pay period, take advantage of my company 401K plan, bring my lunch to work, make my coffee/tea at home in the mornings, etc. If OTF is the one thing I want to splurge on because I love it, then I think that’s fine 🙂
I runfess that I love secret holiday gift exchanges
One of my favorite parts of the holidays is gift giving (this comes second to all the delicious food and drink)! So far I’ve joined 3 different secret holiday gift exchanges and I might join one more. I love to go through a person’s Instagram page to get a sense of their style, likes and dislikes and then pick a gift (or two) based on that.
I runfess that I’m looking forward to my time in Toronto next week
I’m flying to Toronto for work on Wednesday night and I’ll be there Thursday and Friday for work, but I’m extending my stay until Sunday. I’ve gone there twice and because of work, I never got a chance to explore the city. This time since I’ll be done with work on Friday, I decided to stay the weekend. If you have any recommendations for things to do there or places to eat, please let me know!
I runfess that I’m debating on doing a Winter or Spring half marathon
I am enjoying my lower mileage now but I know that eventually I am going to want to start training for a race (I thrive on routine). I’m not really sure which race I would like to do but I’ll probably start looking at races in a few weeks. I’d like the race to be in a state that I haven’t run in yet so that will take a bit of planning as well.
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
I’m also linking up for Fridays with Fairytales and Fitness from Fairytales and Fitness.
Do you have anything you want to runfess for November?
