Next on my agenda:

Annual Spooky Tails & Trails 5K on October 26th... You can do a 5K or a 2 mile. I'm running with my friend's 11 yo son. He participates in Special Olympics and got hooked on running and did a kids' triathlon on Labor Day. We cheered him on with signs and everything. He'll decide if we do the 5k or 2 mile and we're going to plan out costumes for us. Maybe Batman and Robin or something. The goal for this one? Have FUN!!! Run For One and Healthy Living Fair Benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters November 1st 5k. Goal for this one is to run the entire race and hopefully get a time around 40 minutes.

Just finished another 5k run last night! The neon run. Only took me 32 minutes to do the run!!! Best time yet!

That's great! What a fabulous time too. Don't sweat the Tough Mudder too much - my daughter is a personal trainer (at Rival Fitness) and trained a team from her gym for the Tough Mudder yesterday here in Seattle. She says the goal is all about team work and helping each other through it, rather than winning or finishing with a good time. The pictures always look like they had such a great time (this is her fourth!) and never like they are just wrung out. FInd a group and train together maybe. Your time on the 5k though is sure inspiring for me!

My second 5K - I was able to improve my time from last month by 6 minutes, so while I am still slower than a herd of turtles in molasses, I'm feeling pleased about my progress!

I did my second 5k this morning and averaged a 13:34 pace, which is great for me!!! My puppy ran it with me and was such a champ :)

I have 2 in November - the Color Run and then a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning and one last one for the year in December, an ugly sweater holiday run haha

So excited!!!

Third 5K coming up this Saturday morning. It starts at 9AM, and it's going to be warm and muggy. This will be my first day time 5K, so I'm a little anxious. :unsure:

Then next Saturday evening we're doing an Oktoberfest 5K. That one's pretty cool. Registration includes passes to all three weekends of the local Oktoberfest and two beer vouchers each on race day. Which means 4 for the hubby. Lol.

Not signed up for any others until the mini marathon (4 miles) 11/23. We'll see if I can go a month without. I've got the bug!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
