The Great Pumpkin Run 2014 + Another Royals Win

Good morning!  Last night I watched the Royals sweep the Angels and advance in the playoffs.

We didn’t get home until almost 1 and I cried when my head hit the pillow.  The women next to me had a sign that said, “Royals, please get the sweep, because you are your players need some sleep!”  

Preach.

Now let’s talk about the pumpkin run, aka, the hardest 5K I have run.  We had a lot of rain here in KC a few days ago, and the race director sent us an email that said to be prepared for a wet course.

However, as I lined up to start, I had no idea what I was about to get myself into.

Mud.  Lots of mud. Women were screaming.  People were falling.  I saw two girls whose shoes were sucked into the mud and they couldn’t find them.

Seriously.  

After the mud there were pumpkins, tractor ruts, and corn in the way.

When I crossed the finish line I was so proud that I didn’t break anything.

I ran with my friends Brad and Chessa, while Dan played at the farm with their son Silo and Ina.  

 We had a great time.  

 Now for more coffee so I don’t face plant into my keyboard at 10 am.  

Have a good day!
