It recently came to my attention that on the first Saturday of the month, my fellow bloggers Coco, Deborah and Lynda are hosting monthly “Ultimate Coffee Date” linkups, where everyone gets together virtually to chit-chat about… you know, things we talk about when we meet friends for coffee. Go to any of their sites to see what everyone’s posting, it’s fun!
Now, anyone who knows me, knows that my blood type is Group C for Coffee, wherein about 75% of my blood is caffeine. (The rest is avocado…)
Needless to say, I join the Ultimate Coffee Date with the excitement of a kid showing up to elementary school on the first day of 1st grade! (But not this one… awwwwww!)
If we were having coffee… I would tell you that I am so happy to join you! I started blogging in 2012, but balancing family, full-time work, a crazy training schedule and a blog got too much after a couple of years, and the blog got the short end of the stick. Well, I recently made some changes to my work life, which give me more time to get back to blogging about running and triathlon. I am so excited about that!
If we were having coffee… I would tell you that this month, I get to find out if I made it into the Boston Marathon!!! I can’t wait for September 21, when I apply for registration. I hope that my 3:37:24 from the Santa Rosa Marathon is enough to get me in!
If we were having coffee… I would tell you that I only have one race left for this year, a sprint-distance triathlon on September 27. This will be my third time doing the See Jane Run Triathlon and I’m really hoping to beat my time from last year. But surprisingly, I am also a little bit burned out on racing. It’s been a busy year and I’m looking forward to taking some time off to recharge before the beginning of another race season in 2016!
That's right! ANY @seejane.run race in 2015 can be yours for 25% off!!! That's the half marathon in #SanFrancisco June 21, the half in #Seattle July 12, or the SJR women's tri & du in Pleasanton, CA on Sept 27! Use code SJRAMB236. Now go at it!! #seejanerun #ffcheckin #sweatpink #girlsgonesporty #runstagram #racediscounts
If we were having coffee… I would tell you that we are about to head out to a mini-Labor Day weekend vacation at a lake cabin, where I hear there is no internet or cell phone coverage whatsoever. I am a little worried about that!

Happy Labor Day, Happy September, and talk to you soon!
