Race Goals 2

I set a running time goal for myself for the first time ever. I wanted to run the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in sub-25 minutes (well, I posted between 25 and 27 minutes on that blog, and I did accomplish that at least!). It was a CROWDED affair, and the walking at the beginning and the hill up Virginia St. prevented that.

This coming Saturday is the Spark-A-Delic 5K. I think I'd like to reinstate that goal for this race. The sub-25 minute one, that is. My best 3 mile treadmill time is just under 25 minutes, so I'm going to try to take off an additional 45 or so seconds to fit in the extra .2 miles. It's a pretty flat course I hear, but I don't know how many people will be there clogging up the start line. I will be relying heavily on adrenaline to help me accomplish this.

Oh, and I have a pre-Halloween dress-up shot for you. Yesterday the boys and I went to the Sommerset "Touch a Truck Fall Harvest Festival" with our friends Nathan and Gabe and got all gussied up for the event. Then we went to the Ferrari Pumpkin Patch on Mill Street. I forgot my camera, but we did take this picture when we got home later (although I don't know what's up with it being all huge here-I can't seem to fix it). Ashton is Optimus Prime, and Sean is Leonardo (the cut-off one). I'm the Indian Princess in the middle. :) This is only part one of the Halloween pictures, 'cause there will be all new fan-tabulous costumes for the actual Day... (Oh, and I got a trim and some color, but you can't really tell from the photo. Maybe better in person?)

i didn't know a 5k was 3.2 miles :) Have fun out there. I'd do this one if there wasn't points to be earned...
