Coffee date

How about a Saturday morning coffee date with Stevie and me?

Stevie: You should tell your readers you're drinking chai and not coffee.
Me: Stevie, my readers remember every detail of my life and know I prefer chai.

Let's get into it, shall we?

  • As a runner, one of the most frequently asked questions I get is, "what race are you doing next?"  I have two that I'm officially signed up for, plus a few more in the pipeline.  Next month I'll run the Wissahickon Trail Classic 10k and the ODDyssey Half Marathon, both of which I've done before.  I love those two races and can't recommend them enough.
  • The next question I get is "are you still streaking?" Yes, I am still streaking.  I started on November 26, 2013 and it's looking very much like this is going to be a lifelong thing.  I joke with my dad that I will probably put out a press release if I ever decide to stop the streak.
  • My runs lately have all been in the 5 - 8 range (1 mile on Monday for my rest day).
  • I'm at about 930 miles for the year so far, so I'm still on track to hit 2,015 miles this year.
  • Stevie has gotten really into fitness lately.  After eating whatever she wanted for over a year and using pregnancy/breastfeeding as an excuse, she has really buckled down and overhauled her nutrition and fitness.  In her words, she's "blown away" by the pounds and inches she has lost over the last two months.
  • Neale is finally sleeping better throughout the night, but he still likes to wake up between 4:30 and 5:30 every morning.  Never getting to sleep late is kind of rough, but I do like these quiet, early mornings on the back porch.
  • School is winding down, and the reminder I give my students is meant for me as well: finish the year strong.  Don't check out early.
  • Stevie and I are hosting a Memorial Day BBQ this Monday.  I am super excited to get back into grilling.
