I’m so sad Halloween is over. I’m so depressed that I now have to wait another 364 days for it to arrive again. I think most people feel this way after Christmas. Not me. I am all about some Halloween. Even though I didn’t go to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights this year, I did get to attend a Halloween party, dress up at work, and participate in a Halloween run. (I ran with a guy dressed as a banana yesterday. True story.)
In other news, my impending move happens this week. I’ll get my keys on Friday and slowly move stuff until Sunday. I’ve called in some friends to help with the furniture and I think I did most of the necessary address changes for my bills and such. And of course the first two addresses that got updated were Women’s Running Magazine and Runner’s World. Priorities.
There’s a bittersweetness to moving because even though I’m only going to be about 20-30 minutes away from my running group, the BRA, I’ll definitely have to find some others to run with during the week. Part of my attempt at this happened yesterday with the banana guy’s group. I’ll still drive to join the BRA on those long runs, cause lord knows I love running with them. Plus the fun group breakfasts afterward are always a treat. And to make the deal even sweeter a friend who has been helping me with the pace run said she’d alternate weeks with me on driving to my new side of town.
In marathon training news, I’m still at it. I’m shocked after every pace run and happily hit the 5 mile mark today a bit under pace. I was tired that last mile but I’ll take it.
I hope you all had great weekends. Happy belated Halloween. Sniff, sniff.
You are so gonna rock this marathon!! You know I don't like halloween, but alas I survived! HAHA!
So you wore two costumes? I can only assume – being the runner I am – is that you were "layering" for some reason.
Good job this morning Speedy!!!
I'm with you, I could handle Halloween all year!
So – how far is it to Bayshore from your new digs?
Good luck with the move! Not one of my favorite activities.
I'll mail you all my leftover candy!
I'm pretty sure I ran with a guy in a banana suit (at least for a little while) during MCM on Sunday. haha.
Good luck with your move! Hope it goes smoothly. Moving is never fun.
I am all about Thanksgiving. Give me that holiday over any other day of the year including my birthday.
Congrats on hitting that pace. That is now your new measuring stick. Don't drop below that and keep building that speed.
Hey, are you a banana or are you happy to see me????
Running bananas are very popular. I have never run with one yet. Maybe next year. Good luck with the move. May it be as smooth as buttah.
Good luck with the move! Moving is a bitch.
