This weekend was Halloween, but I still managed to get out for a run! I went out about 4:30, before we really got any trick or treaters and with plenty of time to still get ready for our Halloween party. My husband and I dressed up as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider! I was pretty happy with how our costumes turned out. And this gets me thinking and planning for my costume for the Princess half marathon – I’m pretty sure I’m going to be Rapunzel!
Things haven’t gotten too difficult yet with the run training – in fact, it felt like a great week! The weather was good, and I felt good. My times were better than I could have hoped for. I’m still dreading when it gets extremely cold out, but at least that hasn’t happened yet.
On Sunday morning I went for one of the short runs. I went in the afternoon before dinner, and I was just totally in the zone. I kept a pace of 10:20 min/mile, which is one of my best non-race paces! I’ll take it 😉
My second shorter run wasn’t until Thursday due to my schedule and the rain on Wednesday. It also went very well too, though not quite as good as Sunday. It was a little cooler this day and my ears were starting to get cold. I hate that feeling!
On Saturday I went for my longer run, for 4 miles. It was a little chilly but I covered my ears this time and felt much better! It was Halloween so I was just starting to see some little ones out trick-or-treating and I was running, and it was a cute distraction!
Did you dress up for Halloween? What costumes did you or your children have this year?
