Ultimate Coffee Date – October 2016

It is the first Saturday of the month so, of course, that means it’s time for another edition of the Ultimate Coffee Date link-up, hosted by Coco and Deborah. When you’re done here, be sure to check out what the other ladies are dishing about.

The Ultimate Coffee Date

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that October is one of my favorite months of the year. I feel like this is when fall really comes to life – the days are cooler, the leaves turn colors, and its time break out boots and sweaters. Confession I bought a great pair of boots last week that I’m dying to wear 😉 I’m looking forward to apple picking, hiking, celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary, and more fall racing!


If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m also really looking forward to taking the whole family with me to NYC next weekend for RnR Brooklyn. I lived in NYC for 7 years, and haven’t been back in ages. There’s so much I want to see and do…how am I going to fit it all in?!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that cannot believe that a year ago this time I hadn’t been running for almost two months and was preparing for major surgery. And now, I’m days away from half marathon #11 – what a difference a year makes!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m also so excited to have booked my flights and hotel for Vegas next month! It’s 6 weeks away (yes I’m counting!) – use code ROCKATTITUDE and join me!

So what would you tell me over coffee?  



  1. October is my favorite month too! I wanted to wear my boots this week, but it was rainy so I decided not to risk damaging them. You all will have a blast in NYC!

    Thanks for joining us for coffee!

    • Yep my new boots have yet to make an appearance because of all the rain we’ve been having. Maybe they’ll make the trip to NYC for post run 🙂

  2. Lucky you to be going to NYC. I will be going in November with my husband. I go once or twice a year for work but haven’t been with my husband in over 20 years. I can’t wait.

    While it is cooler here, I am still wearing white skirts and sandals !

  3. RnR Brooklyn will be so much fun! I’m so jelly! October is a fabulous month. I just wish it weren’t so darn rainy here all of a sudden. Yay for Vegas! I’m already having FOMO on that one too!

  6. I am with you October is my favorite month of the year! I love the crisp air and leaves changing color. I am hoping to hit the apple orchard next weekend! That is my favorite fall activity.

  7. Congrats on 24 years of marriage! We just celebrated 28. Well, sort of…I was in Texas with my sister on the actual day. Our trip to Big Sur last April was our anniversary present to ourselves. Remember my husband said it wasn’t a second honeymoon? Well, it really was. So fun!

  8. RnR NYC will be a great race! A year makes a huge difference. I was down with a stress fracture thinking I may never run again (yes, a little dramatic). I’m glad we are both healthy this year. Congrats on 24 years!

  9. I hope you and the family have a great time in NYC, I can’t wait to hear how Brooklyn goes! And happy anniversary!
