First and foremost…Happy Halloween! This holiday was much more fun when I was a kid and got to go door to door
begging trick-or-treating for candy. Now I am lame and run 5k’s instead…
This weekend I went to Melbourne to run the Pumpkins in the Park 5k.
It was kind of a dreary evening…it was rainy and humid, but it wasn’t too hot, so I was psyched! Not to mention the costumes made it very entertaining. One of the funniest couples?
Bacon and Eggs! Ironic that there were food items running a 5k. I didn’t have a clever costume, but I did go as the “Official Candy Inspector”.
Ryder was upset that I stole his idea, since he wanted to be the “Official Ice Cream Inspector”.
I ended up finishing 3rd for my age group (ages 20-24), and since there were
four more than three people running in my group (thirteen to be exact), I considered it a win!
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Earlier in the day, I got my highlights done and a good 2-3 inches of my hair chopped off! It looks so much healthier now! (Note to self: do not go four months without a haircut again…dead ends halfway up your head is NOT in style.)
No more roots?! (Cooper didn’t even notice…ugh, boys!)
After Ryder finished his
rubber icecream sandwich, I made him run the race with me.
Which basically wiped him out. He couldn’t handle the heat (and by heat, I mean my speedy pace *ahem* not the weather).
Trick or Treat
Since today is Halloween (yay!) I decided to bake a “treat” my coworkers rather than trick them and stay home *sick*.
I made chocolate chip cookies, spread a little icing on them, and topped them off with candy corn, chocolate chips, and these adorable little pearl sprinkles my mom bought me.
How festive, right!? Hopefully today goes by quickly so I can go home and pass out candy to all the little trick-or-treat’ers.
My workout this morning felt great. I started off by doing 13 minutes on the elliptical before heading into BodyPump. The weekend off always makes Monday’s Pump class seem that much harder.
I was definitely feeling the burn today! I also increased my weights on most of the tracks, which may be why it felt harder than usual (why yes, that IS what I am telling myself to make myself feel better).
I finished off the class with another 15 minutes of ellipticizing and called it a day! I am trying to fit in cardio before/after Pump this week, since last week I slacked off and only did Pump Mon/Wed with no cardio!
Shew! Long post…off to do the work thing now!
QUESTION: Did you go out this weekend for Halloween? Are you going out tonight? What is your costume?
