It was quite possibly the most hilly course I have ever run. Somehow I managed to squeeze in a 9:30 minute mile in there (I’ve been averaging about 10:15) and finish in 31:00. Mile 2 was rough, up and down like 4 hills. Yeah. Four pretty major hills in a mile. It was ridic. Did I mention it rained the whole time? Which is why I refuse to share any pictures of me or anyone else.
In all honesty, it wasn’t an overly positive experience, BUT it was for a good cause, so I should probably shut my mouth, right? Right.
If you don’t know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, you live under a rock. #truth
One in eight women will have breast cancer at some point in their lives. How is that for a wake up call?
With that statistic, it’s a small miracle I don’t know someone that’s been impacted by breast cancer. Well, maybe I do know someone that’s fought that fight or is fighting that fight and I just don’t know it.

The run was in Green Bay and my in-laws live up ‘nort too, so we spent the whole weekend with them. My MIL is making a quilt for our guest room, so we picked out fabric for that (I’m so excited to show you the finished product – itsgoingtobesocool!)
Craig built a fire Saturday night and it was to snuggle up.
We got home around 11am on Sunday, so I was able to get plenty of chores done, including grocery shopping. I’ve never lived near a Trader Joe’s before living in Milwaukee and I’m slightly obsessed. But, in all honesty, their prices are often better than what I can find at Pick ‘n Save! That’s reason enough for me to do all the shopping I can there!
…like everything pumpkin I could get my hands on. I’m most excited to make pumpkin spice rice crispies and a pumpkin pie from scratch. Like, digging out pumpkin guts and making a pie. Fingers crossed it goes well! So far, I can give the pumpkin butter and Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea rave reviews. The oatmeal…nosomuch.
SN: I also had the pleasure of sitting next to this for the 3 hours home. Sunglasses over regular glasses. HE IS SUCH A STUD!
