Monday morning I met up with a friend for coffee. We chatted while I ate breakfast #2. Breakfast #1 was a bowl of cereal at home.


Even though the weather was far from ideal yesterday, I needed to get outside during my lunch break. I ended up walking to Walgreens in the wind, rain, and gloomy fall weather.


I scored on the candy at Walgreens though. These two bags of candy for our trick-or-treaters for a whole $3.68. Since this is our first year living in our neighborhood, we aren’t sure how many trick-or-treaters we are going to have, but I am not expecting too many.


Monday night we walked to our friends house to watch Walking Dead. This was a tradition we started last year and has carried into this season as well. Remember, I blog while they watch zombies. I’m not a fan of zombies, death (or the undead), blood, guts, or anything of that nature.



I need recommendations for a day time lotion.

I had been using Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar, which I really like, but Craig cannot stand how it smells. I don’t care for how it smells either, but I think I’ve gotten used to the smell.

I have used various Neutrogena and Aveeno lotions, but I think I want to try something new. Any suggestions?


Here are a few links I thought might be helpful for my fellow runners out there.

Are you interested in having a coach? Nichole, a 2:44 marathoner, is looking for runners of all abilities to do some personal coaching for. I think she has a great philosophy and would be an excellent coach for any runner out there.

Wondering how NOT to hit the wall in your next marathon. Read Mile Post’s blog post: How Not To Hit The Wall In A Marathon: My Top 5 Mistakes

MsFitRunner—definitely an inspiration running a 2:48 in the Hartford Marathon a couple of weekends ago. Can I have her body?

A new website a friend introduced me to called Salty Runner, which is geared towards women wanting to challenge themselves and see what they are capable of.

    1. Wow, Michelle! Thanks for linking me here! I’m excited to add a few more athletes to my “team” :). You’ll have to let me know when you can be one of those :).

    1. No pressure meant with this comment 😉 My father passed away today and it has been an exhausting day. It was nice to just let my mind chill and read your blog. I always enjoy all you write about. Thanks for being there in your own way.
