The title of this post is simply obnoxious. Just 3 short weeks ago I was laying on the beach writing a post called “Summer in October“. Snow in October is just wrong.
Thankfully, Saturday was a planned rest day so I didn’t have to brave the cold and snow for a long run. We did have 2 parties to go to. The first was a Halloween party for Hawk hosted by our dog walker. We decided to swing by at the last minute since it wasn’t too far away. Hawk got 3rd place for his costume. Personally, Matt and I think he was robbed. First place went to a lab dressed as a cop. Totally unoriginal. Coincidentally, the owner of the lab was also the mayor of our town (I had no clue we even had a mayor), so I think she swayed the judges. Come on, how cute is this little lobster? If you care, 2nd place went to a tiny poodle dressed as a clown.
We left the Halloween party, dropped Hawk off, and then headed out to Jersey. We had a mini-Mains birthday to celebrate! We got stuck in terrible traffic due to all the accidents caused by the snow (it took us 30 minutes to go 1 mile). We ended up turning around since the roads were so bad. I was bummed. I was so looking forward to seeing everyone. Happy 1st Birthday Michael! I hope you enjoyed your cake 🙂
The rest of the day was spent catching up on DVR…Amazing Race and Dexter.
On Sunday I went out for a 6-miler around 11:30am. I wanted some snow to melt and the temps to warm up a bit. I felt so bad for all the MCMers freezing at the start. It was probably good race weather once you got warmed up but I’m sure waiting in the early AM was agony. Congrats to everyone who ran the race!
Happy Halloween! We get to torture Hawk again tonight with his costume.
