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.
Hawk was clearly robbed. I smell political corruption.
I love Hawk’s costume! He was totally robbed.
I’m sorry you missed a party due to the snow! I feel like I’ve been robbed of fall. We had summer, then more summer and now winter!
That is pretty cute! So sorry traffic ruined your night! That’s just awful. And seriously, why is winter here?
Love that costume!
clearly the government in your town is completely corrupt! 😉 hawk is adorbs!
i ran in the snow sat afternoon which was fun…but not so fun was coming home to no power…and still without it! ugh!
Hawk was robbed – the lobster is so creative!
Hawks costume is so cute!! I am wishing these temperatures will stay around for the NYCM…not seeming I will be that lucky…
Hawk’s crab costume is clearly the cutest. Love it.
What is up with this damn weather??? We woke up Sunday morning to a TON of snow! So crappy. This weather better be packing a punch at the beginning and then easing up early (like February!). I can dream, right? 🙂
Oh, Hawk’s costume should have WON for sure!!!! How cute!
Where in NJ were you headed? My parents had a party to attend, too. They had to turn around because the traffic wasn’t moving and, uh, trees were falling. Craziness.
And I concur. Winter running is not my fave. What happened to the fall?
boo boo boo to snow this early! and i also felt bad for the MCMers yesterday. we had such amazing weather last year.
I LOVE your dog. Cutest little guy ever!!! He was totally robbed!
OMG, I love that your dog walker had a Halloween party. And Hawk makes such a perfect little lobster!

Is the weather not completely insane lately? I feel like we are always having “record breaking” weather in NY.
Your dog is so cute in his costume!
