Happy Friday! Did you have a good month? Can you believe that a new month starts on Monday? I feel like I say this every month, but September went by so quickly, especially the past two weeks. How’s the weather by you? We’ve had a few days of “Fall” weather, but nothing permanent yet. I hope that changes soon!
As usual, I have a lot to say or “runfess” about September. 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 started!
I runfess that some people on airplanes baffle me!
I’m not a huge fan of flying, so I understand the need to want to get on and off the plane as soon as possible. That being said, there’s absolutely NO reason to get up as soon as the plane has landed and reached the gate. As soon as the seatbelt sign goes off, everyone wants to jump up – WHY?! I often want to ask these people “Where are you going”? Just wait until it’s your turn to exit your row instead of standing directly in the row and blocking people. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to flying!
I runfess that my hip is being a jerk
I’ve been dealing with some hip pain on my runs (anything longer than 3 miles). This is starting to annoy me because I have several races coming up this Fall. In order to hopefully get better soon, I’ve been doing a ton of PT exercises, stretching and foam rolling. I also haven’t been running during the week so that I can focus on those 3 things, although I’m still doing strength training. Fingers crossed that my run on Saturday is okay.
I runfess that I still need to get the Run Fast, Cook Fast, Eat Slow Cookbook!
I feel like I’m the only person that doesn’t have this cook book yet! I do have the original Run Fast, Eat Slow cookbook and love it. Part of my wants to get through some more recipes in that cookbook before I buy the new one, but the other part of me has FOMO and I want to see all the new recipes. My friends and family always ask me what I want for Christmas, so maybe I won’t buy it just yet but I’ll add it to my wishlist. If you have this cookbook, how do you like it so far?
I runfess that I’m strongly considering running a Winter or Spring marathon
As a follow up from my August Runfessions, I’m about 80% sure that I want to run another marathon. Once I get this pesky hip under control, I think I’ll be in a better mindset to start training for a marathon again. Rock n Roll New Orleans in February is starting to look very appealing to me. It would be nice to run a marathon and then eat my weight in beignets hahahaha. If you’ve done this race, any feedback to share? Or even if you know of any good marathons that take place in January, February or March – I’d love to hear your thoughts!
I runfess that I’m slightly obsessed with cauliflower
So I’ve been having a love affair with cauliflower for the past few months. While I’m not a fan of the cauliflower crust pizza, I really enjoy it in all other forms – steamed, roasted, sauteed, with buffalo sauce, etc. Also it’s so easy to cook in the air fryer that I could have it every day if I wanted too. Now sometimes it doesn’t exactly love me back (tummy problems) but I don’t care because it’s just so tasty! Do you have a vegetable that you absolutely love?
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
Do you have anything you want to runfess for September?
