10k & 10 hours

This weekend was quite eventful...well, at least Saturday was! My friend Beth drove down Friday night so that we could get up SUPER early on Saturday morning to run the Wicked 10k in Virginia Beach. It was SO much fun! I absolutely love running with Beth so I was really glad I got to complete my first 10k with her. And I am now a full believer in the "runner's high" b/c that run was such a thrill! It was especially entertaining b/c everyone was dressed up in Halloween costumes. Beth went as Pippi Longstockings and I went as cotton candy - which made for a very warm and toasty 6 miles. Here we are after the race:
And check out my "lucky laces." I got these at the Susan G. Komen 5k I ran at the beginning of the month and even though I don't really believe in "luck" I thought it would be fun to have some sort of "lucky" item to wear at my races...I mean all the pros do it, ya know?
After the race we had to speed back home so I could get ready for my cousin Amanda's wedding reception! My fam and I made the 10ish hour roundtrip to celebrate with Amanda and John. They got married in St.Thomas (I think) but had their reception back in the states and it was BEAUTIFUL! Amanda had everything 40s themed - from the feathery centerpieces down to her curly hair, red lips, and cute gloves. It was awesome. I love any excuse to get together with my entire extended family, they are a blast to be around. I am so blessed.
Oh yeah, Happy Halloween!
