I did it. Again. I did another 1/2 Marathon. And it was just as lovely as all the other 1/2 Marathons.
Every time I envision these races with these amazing routes, with just me, my friends, great conversation and the open road. I somehow forget about the other 20,000 runners that you have to dodge the entire time. I absolutely loved training with these girls, I just might leave the racing to them...that is until the next time someone asks me to run a race.
At that point I'm certain I'll sign up and do it-again!
All complaining aside, it really was a lot of fun.
I couldn't have asked for better running partners. And it was so different to run smack in the heart of Downtown Denver.
What an awesome city!
This year we ALL dressed up! I'm trying to convince Scott to just make this red neck hat his go-to costume every year.
My little Witch and Me. She played the part oh too well! Don't let this sweet innocent pose fool you. She stoically walked all around town swatting the ground with her broom and shrieking at anyone she deemed a threat. But then she did usually follow it up with an angelic grin.
Alec was a "sneaky" ninja.
The kids were so fun. They really "got" it this year, and couldn't get enough of the dressing up, singing and trick-or-treating.
Ava spends most of her time standing on chairs. I get the "you're an irresponsible parent" look everywhere we go.
But the girl will not sit down!
Scott and I are not crafty at all, so we were actually overly proud of our pumpkins.
I about died over how cute Alec and his friends were at their Halloween Extravaganza put on by his preschool teacher Miss Kim.
