October Runfessions

Hello last Sunday of October! I was planning on having this post ready to go on Friday since that’s when Runfessions happens with Marcia, however life got in the way.

October was a decent month but I have a few runfessions to share with you. It’s been a rather warm month in Nova Scotia with temperature highs of 22C (71F) which is abnormally high. I’ll take it!

Runfessions

Runfession #1: I runfess that I took advantage of our late summer weather and ran in shorts and a tank top a few times. I even ran 3k after my indoor soccer game because, well, why not? I was already sweaty and warmed up.

Runfession #2: I runfess that I had great plans to run the half route of MRW since I missed my race back in September but it’s just not going to happen. I’m not in half marathon shape and it’s going to take another month or so to get back there. I just can’t pull it off right now and I think I’m finally okay with that. Which leads me to my next runfession.

Runfession #3: When I didn’t run my race in September, I still got all the swag items: tank, mug, bib strap holder, hat and socks (lots of swag at MRW). That swag is still in it’s bag under my dresser as I just don’t feel like I should wear it since I didn’t run it.

Runfession #4: I runfess that I really want to run the Hypothermic half marathon on January 14th in Halifax. This is a race I wanted to do for a long time. I volunteered a few years back at a water station which was a lot of fun. However, it was a horrible year for snow and ice and the route was entirely ice. I saw so many people almost wipe out and fall as well….something I’m not interested in. So this will be a wait and register last minute depending on the conditions. It’s an expensive $80 or so for a last minute registration fee but if I trained for it, I would have something to focus on over the coming months. Anyone else in NS planning to run Hypo half?

Runfession #5: I runfess that I finally learned how to add my stats to a picture on Garmin to share! Seriously, I just learned this.

How To Add Garmin Stats Yo Your Photos

  1. Open Garmin Connect on your phone.
  2. Open up your recent run that displays the time, distance and calories in little bubbles.
  3. Click the share button.
  4. Options are to a). photo with stats or b). web link. Choose photo with stats.
  5. Pick photo you want to use, crop photo and then share on social media. Done!

I still can’t believe it was that easy to add the stats to my photos. Obviously, I’m not that tech savy 😉 That’s all the runfessions I have for you! Nothing major but a few runfessions none the less.

What do you want to runfess from October?

Do you throw out Halloween candy at all?

Ever wear swag for a race you didn’t run?
