2 Race Kind of Weekend

This weekend I am going to be a BUSY girl!

Friday night I am running in a Halloween themed 5K in Frankfort. It is suppose to be a real fun run. It is at night and there are over 1000 people that run in the race. The BEST part is that I am running with my mom. It will be her first 5K so I am really excited about that.

Saturday is the day of Halloween activities. We will be trick or treating downtown and taking part in all the festivities that it offers. I am from a small town so it will be limited. There is going to be a Thriller Dance at the end of the night. That should be interesting.

Sunday I am running in a half marathon. Not really sure why but I am. I signed up for it long ago and think I wanted to support the local races or something. But 2 weeks after my marathon I am just not feeling it. I was able to run "fast" the other night for about 3-4 miles but I still feel awkward running. My toenails keep flaking off so my toes are super tender. I have been getting blisters easier too. I think my feet were raw from the marathon and are blistering easier. But either way I am going to run 13.1 miles on Sunday.

* I FINALLY have a team for the Bourbon Chase. The race started 2 years ago and I have wanted to do it each year but never found anyone that wanted to do it. I am excited about a the group I am running with. I think we are going to have a lot of fun! You can read all about the Bourbon Chase here. Basically it is a 12 person relay that runs for 200 miles in 36 hours or less : ) If you want to get in at the cheap price ($1200 for the team which is $100 per person) you have to sign up by Thanksgiving. This year there were 220 teams and 44 states were represented! I went to the finish line and watched some of the teams come across and it is going to be a great time.

My eating is OUT of control since the marathon! I have been eating JUNK. "It stops tomorrow" "I won't do this next week" "Next week I am not buying that at the grocery" EXCUSES! EXCUSES! It is time to stop eating junk. I am really stressed at my job right now so that is 90% of the problem. I typically don't "eat my feelings" but I have started that bad habit again. SO I am going to say it one more time "the junk stops NOW". Time to take out my frustrations on the treadmill or the bike trainer.

Have a great holiday weekend with your family!
