That’s the boys and I on Saturday after our community’s Halloween parade. Both kids had a blast! We are hopping Hurricane Sandy lets us dress up again this coming Wednesday.
Speaking of, we spent most of the day preparing. They have already canceled school for tomorrow and I only see it turning into another day or 2 depending on power outages.
At this point all I can do is watch the storm unfold.
In other news…
I’ve been keeping up the food journal pretty well. Click here to see recent entries. It’s been fun and I love the challenge of taking a semi-decent photo on the phone. I also love that it stops me from just grabbing mindlessly out of the pantry. Although I did sneak a handful of pirate booty today.
I saw Paranormal Activity 4 on Saturday night with friends and had so much fun! I don’t care what the reviews say, I went in for creepy, cheap scares and that’s exactly what I got. I thought it was way better than the last one.
Finally, I ran the Run For Your Lives 5k Saturday morning and had a BLAST! I was a little worried going alone but it ended up being no big deal. I wore my Tough Mudder shirt which is an apparent ice breaker when in a group of runners. I was also equipped with the GoPro and that always invites lots of questions.
This race is a one of my favorites. It’s basically a 5k trail run with a few obstacles and ZOMBIES! I mean really? It’s like fall fun defined.
Here some of the footage I shot…
My final time was 41:07 and I think, if I’m reading the results correctly, I came in 6th in my age group. Either I’m getting fast OR there aren’t many 30-39 year old women interested in running from zombies. lol
Here I am with my medal post race…
I will definitely be doing it again.
OK, I’m signing off. Hope you had a great weekend. Stay safe!
