Is Summer officially gone? I mean, I know the equinox came and went, but this weekend is around 80 degrees, right? I guess I took a Summer vacation from this journal.

Lest this blog becomes a running journal, let me just take the time to say that I COMPLETELY stopped running after finishing the 10k Women’s Mini (one race after my qualifying Half Marathon and the Corporate Chase Challenge). I didn’t do the Warrior Run. Argh.

So, after months of being bad, I returned to the treadmill last month. Ryan is teaching at SUNY Purchase until mid October and has to wake up at the ungodly time of 5:30 AM to make the 7am Train and bus. So, I try to get my butt out of the door when he does, which gives me plenty of time to run 5+ miles at a leisurely SLOW pace. It’s a little annoying how much I’ve backtracked, but it’s understandable.

I also want to lose some of the eating and boozing that still remain… on Ahem, my frame, from those months.

Let’s see how much training I can get in.

In other news, I’m planning a little bash this Halloween, and I intend to go all out in the cheesiness. For the last couple of years, I’ve dragged my feet about what to do and never ended up doing anything. Some cheesy mini skeletons are dancing above the door frame of the bathroom and pumpkin lights are in the frame of the living room!

I’m also trying to coordinate some costumes, but Ryan doesn’t want to do any of the funny ideas I had in mind. Example 1: Tracy, Ryan and I dressing up as Mario, Luigi, and either Wario/Toadstool. Example 2: Sexy nativity scene – Tracy and I getting a Jesus and Mary costumes and sluttying it up (cutting it short)… Ryan can be Joseph or a wise man or something. Example 3: Vampire/Zombie disney princesses (and prince). Bah.

Then I started getting fantasies of creating my own costume, like a kick ass Princess Zelda from Twilight Princess… but as much as I broke it down into steps I need to do, I don’t think I have the time to put one together. AND forget about getting Ryan to dress up as Link! :P
