Indeed, even though I did not run today, it is a Happy Halloween. The All Blacks beat Australia to claim their third Rugby World Cup. The most of any other nation, and the first time a country has won back-to-back World Cups. A great feat that the whole of New Zealand should be very proud of. Other than that, my other sports team today did not do so well, Manchester United, score goals dammit!
Currently, we have a good amount of kids coming to the house to collect candy. Don’t see many homemade costumes like when I was a kid. Of course when I was young it was either something homemade or one of those awful plastic suits with the mask that would slice your face to bits. You were more horrifying once you got home and took the mask off! Death by a thousand plastic cuts.
So tomorrow morning is my third 5k of the year. I can’t believe I’ve only run 2 5k races all year. Hopefully this one will be my fastest. However, I noticed I’m carrying a couple extra pounds after not running most of the week. Oh well, hopefully it’s not too much.
So I close out October, I have my sub 4-hour marathon, I have run 11 races of marathon or greater distance this calendar year, and I am at 1272 miles (2047 km) on my way to my goal of 1500 miles (2414 km). I just have to average 114 miles the last two months. I should be able to do that, and maybe a little more. Although, at the end of November I will start a Holiday running streak. Which actually seems to lower my miles. But we shall see what happens.
I hope everyone out there is having a fun, but safe Halloween. Good luck to everyone in NYC or wherever they’re running tomorrow. Make sure to have fun, keep running, and remember if Gil can run, then so can you!
