november coffee date: 13 years + holiday cheer

Happy November and welcome to the the Ultimate Coffee Date with Coco and Deborah! After reading here, head on over to visit both of these awesome bloggers to join in on the fun.

Over coffee, I would tell you that…

Monday marks 13 years of marriage for myself and Mr PugRunner. The traditional gift for the 13th anniversary is lace, while the modern gift is (faux) fur. I explained to Mr PugRunner that both make a great case for running shoes/races and the adoption of a pug puppy.


He turned around and bought an extra ticket to Hamilton so little man can join us when we go in March. I’m crazy excited – I grew up going to the theater and little man has yet to go to a Broadway-style production (He has been to concerts and a ballet, but that’s it. He knows the music and the story because I listen to the soundtrack all the time, so it will be a great first show for him.).

Over coffee, I would tell you that…

As if Monday wasn’t special enough, my lovely friend Amy invited me to guest host her Sweet Tea Talk Facebook live show at 2:00PM EST! I hope you are able to tune in to join us!

Over coffee, I would tell you that…

I have a wee bit of making up to do if I intend to hit 1019 miles this year. It’s not the end of the world, but I’ve got to hit almost 100 miles in November and the same in December. I guess I should make a B goal of 1000 miles for the year, just in case I can’t keep up.

Over coffee, I would tell you that…

I am super excited for the holiday rush to come. This is kind of my favorite time of year, and I know I’m not alone. We have some super fun things planned from now through the end of the year, and even into next year. Even though little man is getting older, he still enjoys a lot of the fun things we do for the holidays. I hope he never loses his excitement. PS. This is the first time in my 42 years that we will have an artificial Christmas tree. I’m thrilled to be able to set to up way earlier than we ever have.

Over coffee, I would tell you that…

This year has had its ups and downs and I am very hopeful that we end on a higher note than we started. No matter what is going on, I try to stay positive and grateful, but sometimes that leads to me feeling overwhelmed and over anxious. I haven’t done a phenomenal job of controlling my anxiety in 2019, and it’s something I will need to focus on in 2020.

What would you tell me over coffee?

Are you ready for the holiday season?

    Your son is going to love Hamilton! Happy Anniversary. We never paid any attention to the type of gift, except maybe for the first year? I’m not sure how lace leads to a pug, but whatever works!

  2. Happy Anniversary! It’s also our youngest’s 20th birthday (yikes, we’re all done with the teenage years).

  3. Kim G says:

  6. Farrah says:

    Aww, happy anniversary! <3 I've heard such great things about Hamilton, but haven't had a chance to see it yet–hopefully someday!

  7. Marc Pelerin says:

    Good luck with your mileage goals. I had every intention to something similar, but after my marathon my mileage slipped.

  8. Happy Anniversary!!!!
    Um, also… about the puppy… Is that happening? Please say yes!

  9. Renée says:

    happy anniversary to you and Mr. PR!! 13 years is AWESOME! your gift suggestions were already amazing but what your actual gift was sounds like it goes beyond shoes and puppies (if that’s possible 😉 ).

    I totally understand the feeling of wanting / hoping for things to end on a better note. BELIEVE me I’m just done with this year in general.

    I’ll try to join your chat though not sure I can make the whole thing as I’m going to the pool later!

  10. Oh a pug puppy would be so great!! Or new running shoes, always a good buy!
