On October 27th, I got to run with my friend Erin at the Halloween Harvest Half. This was only 6 weeks after the marathon, and I'm confident to say that I did it, and I kept my current time up. I didn't get faster though, and I was a little bummed about that. But really, keeping up the current pace is pretty good. Kristie once said that every race can't be a PR. I'm happy that I felt good afterwards too. Erin did awesome. And we actually haven't been running very much lately, so we were great to go out and race. I thought that is was going to be really cold, but it turned out to be perfect running weather, and the race entry got in my whole family to Black Island Farms. So after the race we got to do slides, a corn maze, see animals, and even ride in a trailer pulled by a tractor out to the pumpkin fields to pick out a pumpkin.
One of the best parts was James did the Kids K. He has wanted to be a "running person" as he's seen Mommy and Daddy be one. He ran it with Mommy, but he ran it the whole way (except when a shoe fell off and I helped him get it back on, I think it was close to a mile).
Mommy and James the "Running Person"!
After this race though, I think I'm done for the year, going to take a break, let my body heal.
I know I can do hard things now, so in the coming years I've got some more goals to attempt.
