I ate the yogurt but . . . : Runfessions November 2017


. . . I wouldn’t feed it to you

It’s Friday Five and Runfessions time, but I have a little bit more to get off my chest this month, apparently. Yes, I’m bringing you six runfessions. I bet I could have brought a lot more!

I’m joining Marcia @ Marcia’s Healthy Slice to get a few peccadilloes off my chest. Want to know what yogurt I’m talking about? You’ll need to read on.

So good at wicking you can wear it more than once!

I runfess . . .
I wore one of my Skirtsports Wonder Wool tees for my hike with running buddy J. And I wore the same tee for our long run the next day.

I runfess . . .
It had been so long since I’d run with Bandit, I totally forgot about the hands free leash.

I runfess . . .
I couldn’t find my gaiters for the trail race so I ordered new ones. Then I found them. And of course ended up not running the race anyway. But now I’m totally prepared to hit the trails (at the time when the trails are about to become unrunnable!).

I runfess . . .
I talked about how I had to run around people at the park in my Weekly Wrap here. What I didn’t tell you was that I let fly some expletives — while they were still in earshot. I’m so tired of path hoggers.

They couldn’t hear me coming up behind them, but that they could hear (and laughed it off).

I runfess . . .
I was draining the whey off of my yogurt when what was left in the container plopped into my sink. And that was all the yogurt I had left. So I tried to scoop as much from the top as I could, and yes, I ate it. And lived to tell the tale.

I runfess . . .
After Stockadeathon (read about it here), I stopped at Whole Foods so I could buy some sushi for dinner. Feeling the need for a treat, I bought a Vegan Chocolate PB Filled cupcake and a cookie. I had the cupcake when I got home, and then the cookie after dinner.

Mr. Judy flew home with a layover in Chicago the next day, and was delayed. He called to let me know and wanted to know if I wanted him to bring me any Garretts (you may remember Garretts played a starring role in last month’s runfessions).

You have to know when to fold up

I quickly said NO!!!!!

Would you curse someone out right as you pass them?

Worn clothes to work out in — again & again?

What do you have to runfess from November? Come join us


I am also linking up with the  Friday Five 2.0  from Fairytales & Fitness and Rachel @ Running on Happy today.

  1. I have run in the same leggings for a few days in the past but never a shirt. Path hogs like so many other folks just don’t have common courtesy. But not so sure if that is taught any longer. Guess I am showing my age here. My folks taught me to be aware of others & pay attention.

    1. The only time i run in the same bottoms is generally vacation — but I have plenty of bottoms! I only have two of my Wonder Wool tees, and that’s why I ended up wearing it a second day (the other was already dirty). They do a great job of wicking — most shirts I couldn’t get away with that because I’m a heavy sweater.


  2. I wouldn’t swear at path hoggers because….people… you just don’t know how they are going to react. But what makes me feel better (and it’s really stupid) is running towards them with my middle finger sticking out. Not so they’d notice, mind you. Just part of my stride…

    1. Well, first of all, it’s not as though I shouted it at them. And second, it was a group of 3 ladies I’m pretty sure were older than me. I was pretty sure they weren’t going to attack me.

      I’m probably a lot more apt to swear than give someone the bird (except maybe when driving).


  3. I had never heard of Garretts and when I was in the Chicago airport and saw it, I thought of you. (Still haven’t tried any.)

    No never sworn on the path…I may be one of the path hoggers. When chatting with others, I often forget that there are others behind me.

    Yes, I often wear my running clothes more than one though usually not the tops but the bottoms many times in a row (but I don’t commando).

  4. I tend to wear the same things a couple of times too…often wonder if the people I usually share the path with notice…heehee…oh…and do NOT drain the whey off your yoghurt…it’s got LOTS of nutrition in it…just one less thing to do every day…heehee…>^,,^<

    1. I discussed it with the friend I hiked with — she didn’t notice anything, but no doubt I had a coat on both days.

      No one has held an intervention with me yet (or moved away from me on the run).

      I know the whey is supposed to be good for you, but I just like my yogurt really thick!


  5. I love that you cursed at that path hoggers! They’re so rude and the bane of my existence. That said I swear under my breath (kind of) as I pass but I don’t think they hear…but they need to!

  6. I curse like a sailor on my bike. Sometimes it’s the only thing that gets people’s attention enough that they notice me – after I’ve dinged my bell and yelled On.Your.Left. I’m not proud of it though. LOL on the gators. I hate replacing things I’ve lost because I know as soon as I do, I’ll find them!

    1. It’s funny people seem to be kind of split between swearing/not swearing. Seriously, they were just the proverbial straw.

      The gaiters wouldn’t have been so bad had I actually run the race. Ah well, I know I’ll use them eventually.


  7. Path hoggers usually have no idea they are hogging the path and they usually have no idea it’s rude for them to do so. That said, I’d probably call out (as I approach them), “Coming around on your left…please and thanks!” And I’d say it in a way that others would hear it, too LOL WHen I did my Fight for Air Climb (back in April), I was trying for a PR, and I got behind a few gals…they all were in single file, but none of them seemed to hear me huffing and puffing or my loud footsteps, or saw me hovering around them on the landings. Finally, after a few floors, I said, “I need to squeeze around you ladies….thanks!” and I sped off fast as I did so, taking the steps in dramatic double-step fashion. I doubt they got the hint that they’d been holding me up, but I felt a bit empowered LOL

    1. You’re right about the path hoggers, of course, and I have many times done the “on your left” thing (and usually that just puzzles them, frankly), but they had completely blocked the path. It had just happened one time too many! And especially aggravating that they got out of the way for the guy WALKING towards them.


  8. I will wear workout clothes twice if I didn’t sweat. I don’t sweat much weight lifting days, so they are usually OK to wear a second time. But I do the smell test first !

    1. To be clear, I didn’t eat all that yogurt. It was quite a lot that fell out! So I tried to scoop up the stuff that wasn’t actually touching the sink (I’m sure some of it was).

      I’m not sure it quite qualified for the 5 second rule though!
