Debbie’s Leaving…

This morning I traded my 12.0 mile scheduled long run in for a walk and breakfast with my BFF Debbie.

She is moving to New Jersey tomorrow, and today is our last day to hangout. I will miss my BFF!!


Does anyone need a running buddy in New Jersey?! 😀


Debbie was my very first runner friend, and inspired me to train for my first half marathon with her in December 2007!


We finished two half marathons together, and tons of other fun races!


It’s been so nice to have her right next door (literally down the hall) for so long! I will miss girl’s nights….IMG_3513


…going out on the town…

We have plenty more fun times to look forward to! She’ll be back for Thanksgiving, and again in January for the marathon!! I’m trying not to be sad!!


However, It was a sad and weird morning not to do my long run. We did go for about a 3.25 mile walk which was nice! We chatted about the move, her wedding, and my poor shin. :( 

After our walk, I had Debbie and her fiance come over for breakfast with us!


I prepped the fruit last night:


  • cantaloupe chunks
  • kiwi
  • strawberries

And made the waffles this morning:


A few weeks back, Debbie brought me some Buckwheat flour waffle/pancake mix that I haven’t had a chance to use. I figured today was the perfect occasion!


Debbie and Mike brought over the contents of their fridge and pantry, including this bottle of pure maple syrup! I have only ever had the real thing once!


My plate:


I also had another scoop of fruit at the end, and added more syrup.


It was nice to be able to hangout with them before they leave! Debbie and I have plans for one more Girls’ night of watching Desperate Housewives! 😀

Have a great Sunday!

  1. Where in Jersey is Debbie moving? I’m originally from North Jersey…Rockaway…which is close to Denville and Morristown but I go to school on Long Island. I love and miss NJ soo much…if she’s in the area I can suggest some great places to run

  2. I’m sorry your BFF is moving. But just think that you’ll be able to visit a new place to see her. Is she near NYC?

  3. aww girlie I am so sorry to hear that your bestie is leaving :[
    you can always visit her though!!

  4. Aww, I got sad reading this 😦

    Enjoy your girl’s night with Debbie!

  5. Oh no! I’m sorry your BFF is leaving! But I’m sure you guys will remain close, no matter the distance!

  6. glad you could enjoy a nice breakfast with debbie before she left!

  7. Aww, I’m sorry Debbie is moving 😦 It looks like you two are wonderful friends, so that must be hard. However, now you have an excuse to take more trips to visit her!

    I need a running buddy in Minneapolis, lol.

  8. This is so sad but heartwarming at the same time. It’s always so hard to say goodbye to a good friend, but you two will surely stay close. And look at it this way, now you have a reason to visit NJ! Having friends across the country is a perfect reason to travel and road trips! 🙂

    Hope you enjoy your last girls night for awhile.

    Where in NJ? .. I could always use a running buddy when I am home from school!

  11. I just popped into your blog & saw that your BFF is moving to NJ. I am sorry 😦
    I am from NJ & I could always use a runner partner! If she is interested in a running club, we have a good one out in the shore-region.

  12. Its always so sad when people start leaving… but unfortunately that seems to be a part of growing up. It’s good that Debbie will be back soon, though!

  13. Aw, I am sorry. It looks like you girls had tons of fun times together, but don’t worry, i’m sure there will be many more to come!!! Why does she have to move?

  14. I am sorry your BFF is moving, but I hope that your adventures together will continue, even with distance. You’ll get a new place to visit her in, and all sorts of new races you can always try to run together, too 🙂

  15. aw the end of an era! now you’ll just have to run to new jersey to see her 😉 that may take a few years but hey! Debbie seems like good motivation!

    yayyy so glad the feed is working!

  16. I live in Jersey City and I would love a running buddy…

  17. Where in NJ? I go to school in Boston but I live in North Jersey and would love a running buddy for when I’m home! Good luck to her!!
