I won!

Look! I won the half price entry to the Perfect 10 race!


That really made my day on Friday. Well, that and the fact that so many of us were available at the exact same time to grab a juice at Schwee Tea.

My luck continued because today has been a pretty great day too. It started early with coaching Futsal – I finally got coach’s shirts in a ladies cut. ūüėČ

Then on to Dane’s basketball game (he is on an¬†another great¬†team this season – wonderful coach and undefeated with one game to go) with Aidan and my parents and we ended the day at an ice festival!

It’s almost race season! The Central Park Half Marathon is tomorrow and that officially kicked off race season for me last year.

Sadly, I have another commitment this year (which will be fun, but I will miss Central Park), so I’ll be starting a little later. But I am getting excited! Especially since I basically missed all of my fall races. Good news! I am registered for the only race I ran last fall – the Perfect 10 Miler. This race is for women only and they really spoil you. :-)

A friend recently told me that she saw me on the video for the Wildwood Half Marathon from last year. It looks like their drone ran the race with us! I finally checked it out and sure enough I am at the very end of the video, post race. This video really makes you feel like you are there again.


Now if only it would get a little warmer outside…

So, I am wondering, what races will you run this year?


You can’t give 100% one hundred percent of the time. Or you will break.¬†That is good advice given by my yoga instructor this morning. We all need to take time to relax and recharge so we can be our best when we need to be. The girls and I decided to take her advice and got a little girl time in this afternoon.

I’m so glad we did because this weekend’s schedule is already making my head spin. The weekend before Halloween is filled with trunk or treat events that the boys will love. Here are Aidan and I at one from last year.


We will also be playing two soccer games (Go Hurricanes!) and going to a Halloween party! (I hope I remember those pumpkins!)

This weekend is also the Perfect 10 Miler race – the last race I am signed up for in October. This is an all female race designed to promote healthy body image and encourage girls and women to love themselves for who they are. My running club runs this race as a team and it is so much fun. Here are a few of us from last year’s race.


This year they have added a 5k option as well as the 10 mile race. The boys and I will be there to support all of my girls running, and there is a pretty good chance I will drop down to the 5k. We’ll see. I know, I know… So add packet pick-up on Saturday and a race on Sunday to our weekend schedule. I am pretty excited for this since I have missed all of my other races. I will have to keep this in mind if I run:


Fall race season continues and we are¬†getting everything together for my running club’s fall 5k – 1 mile kids run, the Gobble Wobble.¬† This race is Thanksgiving morning and a great way to burn off some calories before Thanksgiving dinner. And dessert.


It will be a busy weekend, for sure, but I know we will have a great time. Now I have to go so the tooth fairy can make another visit to our house.

So, I am wondering, do you prefer trick or treating in neighborhoods or trunk or treat events?
