October Recap


Okay, I know… I haven’t wrote a post in almost a month!  This is the longest I’ve ever gone without blogging, but believe me… I have been wasting lots of time reading other blogs and spending time on Pinterest.  To be honest, I’ve been very stressed this month.  I’m struggling to keep my sanity.  Exercise has offered a great outlet for this stress, especially teaching BODYPUMP.  I absolutely love it 🙂  The picture above is our top layer from our wedding cake.  We got it out of the freezer for our one year anniversary (October 6) and it was pretty good! Chocolate PB.


The weekend after our anniversary was the Baltimore marathon.  Colby and Amy’s husband ran the full marathon.  Amy got to run the 5K!  I’m so happy her foot injury is becoming a thing in the past!

I thought the start of the Baltimore marathon was very crowded and hectic.  It was hard for Colby to get into his corral because they were all so close.  He stayed close to the front and said it wasn’t so bad once the race started.

Amy ran the 5K, which was during the marathon.  Then we started waiting for the husbands to finish.

We waited by the 26 mile marker because the very finish was so crowded.  Colby waved to us, but looked a little tired.  I guess that is understandable 🙂

This was his second fastest marathon and was happy with his time.  He did go out a bit faster then he expected (6:40’s!) and ran his fastest 1/2 marathon.  He slowed up a bit after 20 and still finished strong.

A day after the marathon we drove to Cape May, NJ for a late anniversary weekend getaway.  Yes, I made Colby walk up 200 stairs to the top of that lighthouse 🙂

This morning Colby decided to run a local 5K.  It was colddddd this morning!  Amy and I ran 4 miles at the park and Colby killed his race.  He wasn’t even planning on doing it until the other day, but he has been running so well lately.  There were about 250-300 people and he won the race!  First place!! 18:05!
