Happy Halloween!

Man, how awesome was trick-or-treating?


Reason #321 Why It Sucks To Grow Up:

You have to buy your own candy.

Thumbs down.

But on a completely seperate note:

Can you feel it?

(cue "Eye of the Tiger")

Rising up,
Back on the street....

You know what time it is, bitches?

It's marathon time!!!!!!!!!!!

At 8am on Saturday morning, I will be acting a fool by running my own personal marathon along the brisk shores of Lake Michigan.

Rumor has it that Baby Nolan and his donuts might make an appearance - powdered sugar all over his Whoville mug - and perhaps I may see some car cushions or lawn chairs bobbing along the shores.

Ahh, ain't nothing like the lake in fall!

I have a really good feeling about this race this year - now, don't quote me on this, but I think (gasp!) I might be able to pull out a win this year.

I know, I know!

But hey, when you dream big, you can acheive anything!

Go big or go home, right?

I mean, sure, I'm the only peson in the race.

And sure, there is no official time.

And sure, my training has been sub par these last two weeks (except for the carbo-loading part - I just reached pro status on that, yo).

But hey, I got heart, y'all. And that'll get me across that (imaginary) line, first (only) place medal (I made myself) around my neck.

I'm gonna make my momma proud.

First place.

I can smell it.

And I won't be alone - Amy and Captian Cactus (Love.Them.) will be showing some love up north with the half-marathon.

Word on the street is that afterwards, while they go get shitfaced, I get to go wedding dress shopping.

Hmmmmm....methinks I need a better reward........

So I hope everyone has an awesome weekend, and I will see you all on Sunday!

The good part about halloween for those of us that have to buy our own candy is the day after Halloween candy sales. Wahoooo. Except I won't be buying any because I'm trying to lose weight, but Wahoooo for you. Buy some in my honor. :-)

Have fun doing your marathon. You are going to rock it! I smell a first place finish too. Another Wahooo for you.

Love ya.

GOOD LUCK! I hope no Kenyans show up. :P

I hope we get some pictures.

I'll be doing a 5k when you are reaching the half way point...hopefully I can feed off your energy.

Have a great race! I am doing 20 tomorrow at 9 eastern standard time, my last long one before Philadelphia, so I will think of you as I'm doing it!

Sadly, I don't think many people give out Red Vines to Trick or Treaters, so you are better off buying your own candy anyway :-)

did someone say that is a marathon...reminds me of the marathon I used to run on the first of the year....actually I have a maggot of the year trophy from one of this events!!!

Kathleen said...

Haha, that is so freaking awesome!

Prin said...

Dun....dun dun dun!

Yey! Good luck! I hope you get ahead of the pack and stay there the whole race. YEY!

I'm sooo looking forward to it! It's going to be a wet one here in Van City so we'll be running through the muddy trails of the Endowment Lands!

Maybe you should try combining the rewards ... you could get shitfaced and then go wedding dress shopping! Take your camera, but not your credit card ... the best decisions aren't always made in that state.

Have a great run! I hope you have friends out there providing drinks and stuff.

AG 1!!! Woo hoo!

Joe said...

Enjoy the run. I wish I could come out and run with you!

Prin said...

Now whenever I come to your blog, I get the eye of the tiger stuck in my head.

Maggs said...

haa. I found your blog off of Kola's. Your dedication cracks me up. It is SOOOO me! I'm the worlds best procrastinator too!

Maggs said...

Oh and good luck in the marathon!

Prin said...

Oooo, did you win?!! Gaah, the suspense!!
