Morning run with Maritza and runner cat pictures

Thursday 4.10 miles/42:22/10:20 average pace

Got up early and drove up to Maritza's for a short easy run. It was cool and very dark outside and really foggy too. I can't wait for the time change and a little more morning light! We had a really good run and it was neat to see her usual morning route. My shins (and calves? It's hard to tell exactly) have been sore lately but after a lot of icing and stretching yesterday (my rest day) I felt ok today. I iced and stretched again after the run and will repeat that tonight too.

I can't believe that Maritza leaves for New York tomorrow! She is going to have such a good marathon, I can't wait to hear how it goes.

So last night I got into the Halloween spirit and decided to make a costume for my cat. He really enjoys it I'm sure. In previous years he's been a wizard and a clown. This year he was a RUNNER!



LOL! Hope everyone had a fun holiday.

OMG you guys are hysterical! From the look he is giving you in Pic 1, he is having a BLAST. (not)

Thanks for coming out to run with me this morning and for good-luck-monkey and banana bread! I didn't eat it all already or anything. And I totally shared. (not and double not)

That? IS HILARIOUS.

That's cute, though he's giving you a pretty nasty look in that first picture. I guess he should be thankful Halloween's only once a year!

Hi there! I've been following along your progress, and have meaned to drop you a line, but it's been tough at those darn public terminals. Nevertheless, you've had a great string of running with your awesome HM effort as well as some truly impressive training times. You should be proud and excited for CIM!!!

I also LOVE the pics. All of 'em. Running pics, kids pics, sexy witch pics (don't tell your hubbie - er go ahead, tell him! You go girl!), and the cat. LOVE the cat. That's one good sport of a cat as well - mine would have been howling the moment I put the bib on.

Great job! Coundown to CIM begins soon!
