My general plan for the next few months are to run but instead of distance I am going to focus on intensity/speed. Long story short I want to go freaking faster. So I am going to focus on actually training for these 5ks and 10k and try not to get distracted by any other races. We'll see how that goes. After New Year's I will start building distance back up for the next marathon attempt which I would like to PR but to do that I am gonna have to get it together because the course is hilly and tough so hopefully the strength and speed (fingers crossed) I gain in the next few months will pay off then.
In other news I explored more around my neighborhood yesterday (not just straight to running store/ coffee shop/ pizza place) and it is pretty cool.

Happy Birthday Amanda! I have found a great group of ladies to hang with and yesterday we had to celebrate some birthday awesomeness with a little rooftop party.
And lastly we joined Sam's club so that is dangerous mostly because we don't have a lot of storage space so can I store my 100 rolls of t.p. at your place? It also means that if you don't pay attention to the grapes label you end up with a million pounds of seeded grapes. WHY!!! Who wants grapes with seeds. No one. NO ONE. Do dumb people like me a favor and stop even selling them. I should really learn to read.
But it also means I have a crap ton of pumpkin so lets get baking!!!! Yay holidays!
What do you buy in bulk? Or can you resist the allure?
