Happy Halloween Highlights!

I hope you had a great Halloween!  I started out my day with a 12 mile run.  6 were done on the treadmill because it was dark out, but then I did the other 6 miles outside.  My pace was much faster outside, but it was also painful due to stupid glute pain still 😦  Then I spent a large part of my day shopping with my daughter for clothes.  It was mostly successful, but I was exhausted with all of the walking around!

When night came, it was time for holiday fun!  My kids dressed up as a vampire and an unknown phantom.  Even though it got dark at our house shortly after trick or treating started, my son was able to wear that face cover the whole time.  Pretty cool!

Our neighborhood is great for Halloween.  One of our neighbors was passing out Reese’s (my *favorite*) AND Jello shots!  That rocked.  And, I had no idea my Athleta shirt zipper was reflective.  Good to know!!

We had quite the ghastly set up on our porch.  The fun part was the RIP tombstone was sound activated and would light up the eyes and make wailing sounds when people approached for candy.

My kids got huge bags of candy.  Mostly because they were out for the entire 2 hours.  What a haul!  We tracked the night on our Garmin and it was 3.19 miles of walking!!

Making candy twins is a tradition now.

Even my kitten was exhausted after sorting through all of the candy!

On Sunday we were quite lazy with the daylight savings time change and we watched the New York City marathon.  I cheered on the runners I knew (Go RaPearce and SoonerStef!!).  It looked like a great day to race, so I hope all had a good run.  Especially liked seeing the elites cross the finish.

After taking our first journey into beer making (more on that later), we got the family out for bike ride on a beautiful new trail we have by our house.  Perfect day for a ride!  We tricked the kids into riding 13 miles.  Hey, it’s good for them 🙂
