Happy Halloween everyone!
Race day! The Goblin Gallop 5K. 250 runners, which was probably 100 more than last year. It was fairly warm in the mid 50s at least. I had trouble sleeping, so I was up way early. Had a nummy cream of wheat with banana, vanilla protein powder, nut butter and a drizzle of chocolate sauce for prerace fuel.
I did the cheapest costume ever – it cost about $8! LOL. Black bike shorts and top, wrapped with yellow duct tape. The antennae were some pipe cleaners that I glued puffs on and wrapped around a headband. Voila – a bumblebee!
I had so much fun with this, and people responded to it, which was fun. A woman came up and took my picture and asked “Are you going to *bee* fast?” Harhar. When I was running, kids and people were yelling “go bumblebee!” It was so much fun and made me laugh and grin while I was running. I was a little slower than I was hoping for at 29:43, but I beat last year’s time for this race (30:12). I think it was the combo of lifting and biking yesterday, plus not enough sleep. However, I had a great time and this costume was totally fine to run in. I’ll have to get some actual race photos from my mom who entered the digital age with a new camera and came out to watch John and I!
Went out to lunch afterwards, where I realized that I did not eat a single veggie all day yesterday! Not sure how that happened. So, I had a salad
along with my wheat pizza wrap. So good!
While there I spotted the last pink item for the month of October!
I’ve had some outclicks to the National Breast Cancer website from these, so I hope that it has inspired at least a few people to learn more or do more about taking your health into your own hands!
Hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!
