Start all over again

11 Oct
So, the taper week is over and it’s time get started again for the next half marathon.  Next on the trip tik is the half marathon in the Outer Banks

It's Momma G at the OBX! Hi mom!

Well, I guess technically before that is the Wicked 10K in Virginia Beach. 

The Wicked 10K is a pretty awesome race.  I did it last year and had a blast.  In the Wicked 10K you can dress up in costume since it’s on Halloween.  This year Leanne and I are going to walk it.  We are going to go as good and evil in the form of rival college football teams.  Leanne is an Ohio State supporter whereas I support the University of Michigan.  I think we know who has the correct affiliation… 😉

Anyway, we are planning on dressing up in all our collegiate gear and having some form of good and evil on our backs. 

This Sunday we started “training” again for the half marathon.  It’s not like you really do have to start all over again, but that’s how your legs may feel at the beginning.  We did a pretty easy walk on Sunday it was about 3.5 miles through First Landing State Park. 

 I love walking through here!  It’s also where we did our trail training for the White Tail Trail Half Marathon.  The trail in the park was pretty busy on Sunday as there were tons of little girls with their dads walking on them.  I’m thinking that it was some kind of Daddy and Me girl scout thing. 

After our walk, as per tradition, we went to Starbucks to get some coffee and read the New York Times.  This is my Sunday schedule, walk at First Landing, go drink coffee at Starbucks.  I get a grande iced soy latte and read the paper.  It really is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday. 

Mmmm unecessary calories...

After that we ran some errands and got…pumpkins!  It’s Fall!  Well, kind of, since Virginia Beach doesn’t really recognize Fall until the end of October…sheesh.  So to end this lovely post, some pumpkin pictures!

These were cool. They're all bumpy and green. They reminded me of green candied apples

Regular ol' pumpkins. They had sooo many at this little farmers market


So, Leanne was super psyched about all the pumpkins and Fall decorations

How did you spend your weekend?  Are you ready for Fall?

    I am jealous! I was thinking of the Half Marathon at the Outer Banks… but didn’t prepare for it. Still thinking Wicked 10k. I do like the way you spend your Sundays, a girl could learn a lot from you!

    Have a great week!

      The Wicked 10K is great, you did it last year right? I love my Sunday mornings, I wish I could spend each morning that way!

      Oh mom, you do not look like a squished Munchkin. You look nice and relaxed, like you were. You were wearing a Salty Dog tshirt and capris, perfect beach attire!
