the october 2012 running recap.

total run mileage: 81.85 miles
highest weekly run mileage: 25.12 miles
# runs: 13
# rest days: 18
# xtraining workouts: 1 <-oops.
favorite run: the nike womens ½ marathon of course! although i do have to say that saints & sinners was a close 2nd because of that sub-2 hour.
most hardcore run: the run i did in between nike and saints & sinners. i was determined to do 10 miles and it was tough mostly on my mental game. must remember to take a buddy next time.
current reads: where we belong by emily giffin. i actually started and finished one! emily giffin, one of my absolute faves, came out with a book at the end of the summer. i got it for my birthday but things had been pretty crazy so i was finally able to finish it this month. omg, soooo good. didnt end quite like i thought or totally would have liked, but it was good.
current shame-inducing guilty pleasure: thinking about all those gorgeous fireman at the nike race. jessica and i have really wondered how many phone numbers they got that day…

current obsession: the new taylor swift cd. i really love her.
current drink: water, a lot of it. with the 2 races this month its pretty much all i drank.
current song: tragic by taylor swift. have you bought the new cd? seriously, do it now if you havent.

current wish-list: a new iphone. no really this time. my phone has been dropped enough and is old enough that i think it really is time for a new one. but i believe im gonna go with the 4s, im not super wild about the 5 to be totally honest.
current need: to keep looking forward. with the holidays coming i have some really cool things coming up with family, friends, and traveling. i need to focus on these things coming up when the other stuff gets dark and gray.
current triumph: breaking the sub 2-hour mark! this is seriously huge. it took 10 ½ marathons and 3 years, but i did it:)
current bane of my existence: being an adult and having to make grown up decisions.
current goal: to get through these days one at a time. october was a huge month. it had some really great highs like san francisco and nike and some not so fun lows. i know im going to need awhile to recover from the lows. that means starting to get through the days one step at a time.  
current indulgence: fun coffee. ie starbucks, coffee bean, holleys (a local place by my parents house). ever since the end of nike i have totally been finding excuses to have it:)
delish. and great company:)
current excitement: thanksgiving is coming! its one of my favorite holidays because my whole family actually gets together. we are big and loud and crazy. theyre the best and it makes you really feel loved.

Adult decisions are over-rated. That is all. ;)
