yay halloweenie!

Happy Halloweenie!  Did you eat any candy yet?  Here is my favorite:

take 5 loves me back
take 5 loves me back

And here was the trick part of my holiday

yes, this was stuck to my window by a co-worker!

Of course I laughed a lot – especially at the reaction of some woman who walked past me in the parking lot.

All in all, Halloweenie was a huge holiday in the fam.  My mom adored it.  With my job, Halloweenie isn’t quite so fun anymore.  It’s usually a night filled with mischief and debauchery.  I’m also proud to say, I”ve gotten over the desire to tramp it up!  I’m sort of an adult!  If I were to dress up, this is what I would choose

witchHead’s up – if you have a Chipoltle near you, wear a costume and get a $3 burrito.  I’m going to.

Yesterday I planned on running 8 miles.  I started running and felt pretty good.  My ankle and arch started acting up around mile 4 and I had a thought.  Maybe tightening my shoe laces will help?  I gave it a shot and couldn’t believe the difference.  It felt so much better that I did it to the other foot too.  I’ve never liked tying my shoes tightly so this was a big and new deal for me.

Anyway, at mile 5 I was almost home and thought to myself, “5 is good for today”.  Then I thought about the next day and knew I wouldn’t be able to get a longish run in and I told myself I was already mostly done.  So, I hiked up another big hill (it was my third for the evening) and finished up all 8!  I was happy with myself!

I hit some negative splits with the first and 6th one indicative of the hilly terrain:  11:30, 11:17, 11:07, 11:05, 11:07, 11:51 (I was hating my life right here), 11:17 and finally 11:05.  It was a good run and I iced both knees and my ankle when I got home.  I love it when I am a smart runner!

I can't help it - I adore this!
I can’t help it – I adore this!

Have a fun Halloweenie!
