The Pumpkin King 5k

The post is sponsored by Level Up Virtual Runs and no other compensation is given.

I have been slacking on running lately most of this year, I am slowly (a little too slowly) getting back into it. I have gained weight and I have missed it. It seems my life is a non-stop whirlwind and its quite annoying.

I have a future race planned out later this month, and since it is Halloween time and I am excited for the holidays, I am going to jump in and participate in The Pumpkin King 5K Virtual Run.

The one thing that I like about virtual runs is that I can run / walk them anytime and anywhere. Plus, no matter where you live, you can even join me! We can earn the same bling!

The cost is only $25 - which is super reasonable. BUT if you use code PUMPKINKING you can get 10% off! That extra discount is basically a Starbucks Coffee. :-)

I will be running my Virtual Run this weekend - when do you plan on running yours? Are you going to join me in The Pumpkin King 5K?

Today's Fun Run

Today I had a pretty good run. Despite it being cloudy, 43 degrees and slight rain sprinkles, and I just wanted to stay in bed and drink tea, I took my new Garmin toy out for a 2 miles slog around the neighborhood.

I did not feel like driving down to the greenbelt, or to ghetto renew. I did something that I have only done twice since I have lived in the house I have been in for 2 years. I went outside on foot. It was scary. I don't care for my neighborhood. It is not pretty, and the only ones that are on bike or foot are the ones that have no license, DUIs, or under the driving age. No one is outside for exercise. Which is weird. Boise is such an outdoorsy city.

Well, anyways, I did my 2 miles, then came home to play with the garmin. I wore it to work yesterday to try to figure out the functions. I was tempted to wear the HR monitor too, but I thought that may have been tech overkill.

Anyways, seeing the calories burned and the constant updates on my pace and how far along on my workout I am, I really am digging the whole garmin thing.

I have not ran since Saturday's half marathon and I have been kinda lazy. And a little sore. But I did do todays slog with my timing chip still on my shoe. I am a dork.

Anyways, off to take a hot shower and break out the space heater. I am not enjoying the cool weather yet.
