I always consider Halloween a success when I can squeeze in a run before trick or treating. So yesterday was a WIN in my opinion because I grabbed a little over 4 miles at Yankee and Bremen Woods before hitting the
candy Trick or Treat Trail with the kiddos!
4.17 miles ran – 9 min pace
2 Coyotes, 2 Deer and countless squirrels
scared the shit out of mestartled me in the woods.
2.5 fun size Three Musketeers consumed
and I don’t even really like them.
1 fun size Snickers consumed
0 Almond Joys received – 0 consumed
The fact that Almond Joys were “out” for this year was a small blessing and saved me a ton of calories!
.49 miles walked before Michael pooped out
Yes, I started my Garmin to go Trick or Treating.
1 baby wipe, 1 cucumber wipe & 4 cotton balls with make-up remover needed to remove the green face paint from my lil Army man!
This was Round #2 of 2012 Trick or Treating. Lexi (Clawdeen from Monster High), Aby (Cleopatra), & Michael (Army Man) from the weekend:
I hope you all had a Happy and SAFE Halloween! Now quick, what are you planning to do with all the candy?

No candy….handed it all out to Trick-o-Treaters! Only have 4 Halloween cupcakes on the counter.
But you have beer in the fridge…… which is way better!
The deer aren’t startled and take off running? Too funny that you measured your trick or treating via Garmin. I’m sure when you upload the data it will look wacky, going house to house.
It looked really crazy with zig zags all over the street. Initially I was perplexed b/c I loaded all of yesterday’s workouts simultaneously and that popped up first instead of the trail run I expected. 🙂
That makes me think of a story from last week- a man planned a run with a ton of out and backs and the Garmin upload spelled out “Will you Marry me?”. His girlfriend (also a running fanatic) saw what the route said when he shared the data. Creative and cute!

Cracking up a the Garmin comment. As I walked my girls from our house to their friend’s house at the other end of our subdivision, I was wishing I had mine… but I knew exactly how far we went because it follows my running route… 1.5 mile walk. My weakness is Snickers. I need them out of my house!
I only had my garmin on b/c I had just ran or I too would have “missed” the opportunity!

Must get candy out of house especially the chocolate. That is my main weakness.
I have some candy left – I bought it for my staff. I’ve been carrying it around and giving some of it away and some of it I’ve stashed away… out of sight, out of mind. Also, sometimes I have those, “MUST HAVE CHOCOLATE NOW!” moments so this will help 🙂
