#WeekendCoffeeShare – Getting Older

If we were having coffee, we’d be sipping the dregs here at the hotel.  It’s not good, or hot, and so I’m skipping the coffee tonight.  We could run to the Starbucks down the street, but if it’s all the same to you, I think I’ll stick here until you get back.  I’m pretty tired.  And yes, you’re right that coffee would probably help with that, I’m just not motivated enough to go get it.

We ran the Spartan Race today, and it was a tough, wet, muddy course here in Asheville.  Honestly, we’ve run tough, wet, muddy courses before, but today I suffered. (more than normal)  I am getting older, so maybe that’s what it is.  I have been nursing a couple of nagging injuries, so that could have contributed as well, but whatever it is, I’m sure I don’t like it.  There is another race tomorrow, but after today, I think I’ll be laying out.  My daughter will still be racing, and I will cheer her on.  That’s the plan, though it is a sad one.

Oh, can we go back to Starbucks and their coffee for a minute.  Sorry about that, I’m just sitting here, and one of my pains is related to just that, so I thought I’d mention it.  Think about this, you go by the Starbucks in the morning when their coffee is fresh and hot, get a nice large cup of black coffee and head down the road.  Then, picking the cup up from the top because the cup holder is built low in the console, you spill the whole thing in your lap.  Ouch!  I like hot coffee, but I’ll admit to wishing it was a little cooler that morning.

So I’ll spectate tomorrow, apply antibiotic ointment to my burns and cheer on my daughter!  Sounds like a good day.

Hope you all have a good week and are able to keep your coffee in your cup until you are ready to drink it!


#WeekendCoffeeShare is an informal weekly link-up that serves as something of a mind-dump for the week.  If there are typos and what-not found here, I apologize, but mind-dump.  I don’t do a lot of editing here as I like that it is more a stream of consciousness type post, normally written while drinking coffee, listening to music, and reflecting on the week gone by.

It is hosted by Eclectic Alli. Check out her post for the week and maybe post a share of your own!
