One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Pineapple Classic

My catch-up post from the past couple weeks... Here is a family picture from Halloween. We had a great time -- we went with our neighbors Greg and Jody, and their daughter Turynn. The kids really got into it this year... every house it was "Trick or Treat, Monster Feet!!!" followed by lots of giggling and laughing. It never got old :)
In running news, the only race I have done lately was called the Pineapple Classic. It is an adventure run 5K - and it definitely was an adventure!! Army crawling on your hands and knees through the mud... climbing stacks of tires... a huge wall that we had to scale using a rope to pull ourselves up...many more obstacles, and SO much fun!! (oh -- and we carried a pineapple and passed it around like a hot potato the entire race!) I am grateful to Beth Brewster from Kingston Adventures - she sponsored our team and provided t-shirts. These ladies were women that I met at the retreat that I went to a few months ago.

We have an appointment tomorrow for family pictures -- it is supposed to be pretty cold -- but as long as it is dry, I think it will be okay... :)

I am still undecided for Eugene... I am going to try to set some running goals over the next couple weeks and see how it goes. If I can regularly fit at least two good runs in during the week and a long run on the weekends, I will register for the full.

How fun! Maybe I need to think outside the box so I can get motivated to run. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's having two wee ones, but I'm just not feeling it these days. I'm hoping by the time 2012 arrives, I'll be ready to pick a run myself. Keep me posted on your plans.
