An October to remember

3.2 mi, 9:30 average pace

It felt so great to get out for my first run since the crazy weather started. I skipped the barbell blast class tonight so that I could take my time making a veggie omelette for dinner, and more pumpkin cookies!

I forgot to share pics of my activities during the power outage. It was a cozy moment, and I love headlamps 🙂 Badass.

Here are more headlamp moments…

Also, my friend Oscar from the Toronto Marathon has a running blog that is super inspiring. Check it out!


Let’s talk about October! I loved this month and all the highs and lows. Completing both marathons was definitely a great accomplishment this month. I felt so pumped and proud after Chicago, and then a little bit defeated after Toronto. I will never forget all of those special running moments, and the training with one of my best buds Melissa.

School was a little tumultuous this month, but that is kinda typical for the beginning of the year. I’m hoping things will calm down soon!

I loved all things pumpkin, candy corn, and spooky this month. I adore Halloween. I am looking forward to time with family for the upcoming holidays as well.

I met some great new friends recently, and have loved getting to know them. I am very shy, but I knew I needed new local friends to keep me busy with Kevin gone. Also, some great things have happened to people I love, such as my cutest friend Alli getting engaged, Jordan’s 5k PR and my dad quitting smoking!

I missed Kevin a lot this month. I think we are both just tired of being apart, and are missing each other like crazy. Running has helped me so much and really is better than therapy :). Baking helps too!

And as my kiddos say at school, Goodbye October…Hello November! I will post some November goals and things to look forward to soon. 🙂

What was your favorite moment in October?

What is your favorite Halloween candy?

  1. Glad to see good things happening! My favorite moment in October was probably a tie between starting work and starting to date a very nice boy, haha.
