She's baaaaaaack!!!!

***Family Blog update- {The Hunt}  

I got to run with Darcy this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It made my week.  Just like being able to finally run with Mindy again made my week last week.  This was my first run with Darcy post marathon and boy have I missed her.  I LOVE my running partners.
I'm running the Halloween Half Marathon tomorrow.  I'm pretty excited!  After multiple costume changes, I think I finally have what I'm wearing squared away.  I would tell you, but I don't want to spoil the surprise.  I'm sure you'll be biting your nails with anticipation.

As far as the race goes, I don't really know what I'm going to do yet.  It's a VERY downhill course, so the possibility of a PR is huge.  I would really love to break into the 1:30's, but I'm nervous.  When I ran the Salt Lake Half 6 months ago is when I injured my IT Band for the first time.  I do not want to go through that again- and downhill courses definitely leave that possibility wide open.

My friends Kalie and Mindy are both running, so part of me just wants to hang out and run with them and help them reach a new PR.  We'll see how I feel in the morning!  I'm packing my little camera, so at the very least, be prepared for some cool running costumes!

Lastly, I just need to reiterate how my Las Vegas Ragnar team ROCKS!  Our team captain sent us the results, and we were 29th out of 478 teams in Vegas and 12th in our division.  They were so fast!  It was truly a blast to run with such a talented team.

Anyone running a Halloween race this weekend?
Obviously, I am!  Halloween is my favorite holiday and I can't wait to celebrate it with RUNNING.

What's your costume?
It's secretive.  Tune in tomorrow or meet me at the Halloween Half to see!

Awesome job on your Ragnar!

I'm sure you'll kill your halloween half! Your half PR is already way faster than mine! (Actually, almost all of your PR's are so it's no surprise!) Even if you don't PR, you'll have such a great time, it sounds like a super fun race!

Darcy is so beautiful. I have been thinking about her and her family all day today. Tell her I am thinking of her.

Aaahghg! I am so excited for tomorrow. And for your costume! See you in the morning!

Amylee you are the prettiest girl ever! I just love you. Anyway, I can't wait to hear your halloween marathon recap AND see your costume. I won't be dressing up this year but Logan will be and his costume will be cute I assure you :D

Good luck at the Halloween Half!

I once saw an enormous pancake costume. I think you should run in that. On second though maybe not, too much wind resistance.
