Ultimate Coffee Date – February 2018

The Girl's Got Sole - Ultimate Coffee Date

The weekend has arrived! If I had to pick one day of the week that was my overall favorite, that would be Saturday. Most of my runs take place on Saturday mornings, and there’s no clock to punch in at work! šŸ™‚

This post is a part of the monthly Ultimate Coffee Date link-up from Deborah of Confessions of a Mother Runner and Coco of Got2Run4Me. Be sure to check out their blogs, and of course all of the coffee date link ups.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you… after my run this morning, we are having our end of the season breakfast with my training program. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone, our gatherings are always a fun time. For the first time, we are having it at a local brewery, so that should be interesting. I am not a beer drinker, so unless they have mimosas, I will stick with my coffee. šŸ™‚

If we were having coffee, I would tell you… I’ve now been energy drink free for a month! One of my goals for the year was to give up energy drinks like Red Bull. I was drinking like two a day! In the end, it didn’t help my exhaustion caused by my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I’m now drinking only coffee and having some pre-workout stuff before some of my workouts.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you… I won a free registration to run the Quack Attack 5k this month! I have been wanting to do this fun race, but always seem to be too busy or what have you. The race benefits United Against Poverty Orlando. Some of my group is going to do it with me, and I look forward to the fun we will have!

How about you? If we were having coffee together, what would you tell me? Iā€™d love to hear about it in the comments.


Ultimate Coffee Date – February 2018 — 19 Comments

  1. Thankfully I never really liked any of those energy drinks but I have to think they cannot be so good for you. Nice job! Thanks for joining us for the coffee date

  2. Good for you on giving up the energy drinks! They are pretty pricey too. I hope the brewery had a mimosa for you — or at least coffee. šŸ˜‰

  3. Good for you for cutting back on the energy drinks. I’m sure that wasn’t easy but it’s for the best. I so hear you on the exhaustion. Hang in there friend!

  4. Those energy drinks are so bad for you! Did you know that if you drink too much caffeine, it makes your potassium level drop? I do love coffee tho, but I try to limit myself to 2 cups a day.

  5. I’m with you …no beer for me, but a post run breakfast mimosa would be perfect!! Have fun at that 5k …quack, quack!!

  6. Congrats on being energy drink free for 30 days! That must be very gratifying. šŸ™‚ Hope they had some mimosas for you at the brewery. šŸ™‚

  7. Good for you for breaking the energy drink habit. I have Graves disease (fortunately in remission), so I understand just how draining thyroid issues can be.

    That’s cool that your training program goes out for breakfast at the end of the season. Ours usually has a happy hour…breakfast sounds far more appealing!

  8. Really? I guess I’ve heard mixed on the coffee thing. Some say 3-4 cups a day is good for you. But, the energy drinks are definitely not good at all.

  9. I actually had a Mango Ale (I think it was an ale) since one of my fellow runners bought me a drink. Rare for me, but it was pretty good.
