It’s Sunday night, I’m high on all the Halloween candy I swiped from my children, and Daylight Savings Time has me all sorts of ready for bed at 8:30pm! I’ll keep this brief tonight because I have a date with an early morning spin class to get to! Spoiler alert: the past week was GREAT!
I’ve been on a roll with Monday morning spin class. It’s my favorite cross training activity and a fun way to start Monday mornings!

5am workouts have been incredibly hard for me to do without some accountability. Lucky for me, I have a lot of crazy friends who are willing to meet me for early morning gym dates! A quick treadmill run, followed by a short spin class!

Full Moon 5k is an annual Halloween themed race here in Fargo/Moorhead. This was my 4th year running the race, and strangely, it always ends up being my fastest 5k of the year. This year was no different, and for the first time I broke the 28 minute mark and PR’d by 56 SECONDS! I’m feeling inspired and am rethinking how I look at my training. Post about this coming soon!

The weather was fitting for Halloween morning: windy, rainy, and cool. My friend Julie and I toughed it out because I knew I’d be eating 12 lbs of Halloween candy later on in the day. 4 miles can cover those calories, right?

I was going to make this a strength training day, but the weather was too spectacular to be stuck in the basement of the YMCA. Nearly 60 degrees and sunshine on November 1st is not to be taken for granted. I know my days of short sleeves and capris are numbered, so I had to get out for an afternoon run along the river.
