Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween friends!

I don’t know if I have mentioned but Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays.  I love the festivities that go along (dressing up), relaxing but I also enjoy all of the sugary candy.  I am not one to skimp Halloween (I know there are healthy choices but I also know that Halloween is once per year).

Anyways last year I had the best time dressing up with Kris L and doing the Wicked 10k.  Sadly this year, neither of us did that race (due to injury).   I would have driven down if I was injury free.

My plans this Halloween are just working.   I’m not selling pumpkins for your feet though.  (If you ever need motivation to do more core work, dress up as twinnzie pumpkins  with Kris).


Instead of the usual articles I share on Friday, I thought I would share some more festive ones.

Happy Halloween friends and enjoy the day!  Use all of the pumpkin emojis and eat all of the candy you were supposed to pass to children…wait no that is just me.

Question for you:

What are you doing this Halloween?

  1. I always find it intereting when people say that Halloween is one of their favourite holidays, because it seems to be dying down so much and there are years when I literally even forget about it. I miss being a little kid when Halloween was a HUGE deal and the streets were filled with trick or treaters… Now we barely even get any kids coming around!

  2. Halloween has long been my favorite holidays! I love the candy and the costumes! Having kids has made it even more fun, because now we can force them into dressing up as a big theme. Though KB decided she didn’t want to play this year, punk that she is.

    Are you wearing a costume for work?

    1. Oops, forgot these:


  3. hahahahaha “there’s always someone who forgets the theme” omg that just made me crack up! thank you for making my friday morning 🙂

  4. Absolutely nothing with NYCM this weekend. But after the race I will take allllll the candy 🙂

    The past 3 years I went down to Miami for the Halloween Half Marathon to run in costume but sadly it was last weekend and I was in a wedding. Sad.

  5. I’m just working today! Halloween is okay. Definitely not my favorite but it’s fun to get dressed up and go out sometimes!

  6. I love halloween too!!! This year we have had a busy day since andrew was off scHool. Now with a little down time. for the eveNing its my granparents, parents, trick or treater, bon fire, and then to my friends for me to get dressed up! (im tired already haha)

  7. I dressed up as … a jellyfish! Wore all black and a reflective vest (one of the perks of working at a running store!), and doctored up a clear umbrella with glowsticks and polka dots. Since I have to work today, we didn’t go too crazy, but we did have a lot of fun.
