I decided last minute to run the Old Reliable 10k which was part of the Raleigh City of Oaks Marathon & Half Marathon. I got a coupon code from a friend, and I was sold. For whatever reason, 10k races can be hard to find. Since this one was practically in my backyard, it seemed it was meant to be. It was an awesome race with a cool route. While I originally thought the 10k was "my distance," it just didn't do it for me. I crave that feeling, that achievement you get from running a half. I've definitely got City of Oaks on my brain for next year!
I am damn proud of this pumpkin! I dug up a carving kit I bought at Target last year at the post-Halloween clearance and carved the hell out of this bad boy! D had no interest in carving (lame), so there was just one this year.
3. Visit a haunted house.
Just didn't happen. The timing was off with traveling, and believe it or not all of the houses were a bit of a drive for us. Next year...
Well remember this fail? Still counts. I plan to delve into another dish that I'm not embarrassed to share at work ;) Luckily it's only November, so I have time!
Of course the fair happened. Of course I didn't take more pictures. I'm busy living life I tell ya!
6. Apple picking.
I just don't think it's going to happen. All of the "good" orchards are so far away from us, and neither of us have the money (hello Christmas shopping!) to take a weekend trip. Not to mention D just did not seem to be as "into" the orchard idea as me.
Four out of five/six ain't bad at all!
