October 2014: I'm Going Streaking!

My favorite month is here! I absolutely love October! Cool crisp air in the mornings, changing colors of the leaves, apple cider, and pumpkins!

Since I'm not running any half or full marathons this fall, I decided on a different challenge. I'm planning on running or walking at least one mile per day for the whole month of October.

Today is the 8th, but I'm actually on day 9! I couldn't wait to get started. I'm silly like that.

This morning, I got to watch the lunar eclipse/blood moon during my run. It was so cool to see. I took a few pictures with my phone, but the internet provided much better pics. 

I'm really enjoying this challenge so far. I always feel better and have a more positive outlook on days that I run anyway, so this had been great!

I have a 5k coming up on the evening of October 24th; the Black Cat Chase. This is one of my favorites and it will be my 4th consecutive year running! It is Halloween Themed and I love seeing all the runners in costume. I've yet to dress up for a race. Mainly cause I find it hard enough to run when I'm dressed normally. I'm somewhat clumsy.

I also have some news to share about a certain upcoming race in 2015, but it's top secret for now. So you'll just have to wait.

Have you ever dressed up for a race? Would you?
