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?

The Weather Gods Smiled On Me Today

Were you in Boise this afternoon? Did you see the weather?!?!




52 degrees! Perfect!

I had some brainy thought to go slog 13 miles in the great weather on the greenbelt. Yeah, didn't really work out as I planned.

When was the last time I did 13 miles? Well, my last long run was the Seattle Marathon and I walked half of that.

I was feeling strong in the perfect weather the first half of my slog. But my right hamstring was feeling tight and my knees were feeling achy.

The last couple of miles I walked but I think that it may be time to retire the Newtons and get another pair of shoes. My feet were not totally happy. I felt like they were a little loose and my feet were wobbling around in them a little more then normal.

But I did my first long run in a month since the marathon. Yay to me!


How long did you wait to do a long run after your marathon?
