It’s now officially two weeks until the marathon. The race is creeping into my thoughts more frequently with each passing day.
I also appear to be coming down with some sort of illness – sore throat, stuffy nose, etc. Not good! When I get sick, it tends to last for a while and I don’t want to be sick while running 26.2mi. I have been making sure to get extra rest, drink lots of water, and take some vitamin C. Plus, I have been washing my hands like a maniac.
In other news, I actually had to wear long pants for one of my runs this week. I typically wear shorts until it is below 40 and we finally had some daytime temperatures in the 30s.
Miles Run: 30

Things I am Grateful for This Week:
1) Group Halloween Costumes
I typically dislike dressing up for halloween, because I am terrible at coming up with ideas and not particularly crafty. But when it’s a group costume, I can totally get on board. Last night, some friends and I dressed up as Kiss. It was surprisingly awesome. I was uncertain that we would pull it off, but I am feeling pretty pleased.
Pumpkins are one of my favorite things about fall. Not only can you eat them, you can also make jack-o-lanterns!
What are you being for Halloween this year?
Any suggestions for fighting off a cold?
