Holy moly it’s October! October is hands down my favorite month. The weather starts to cool off a teeny bit for us Floridians and Halloween everything comes out. I will try to cram in as much spooky scary creepy crawly action as possible…with a side of running of course. Wink.

Rule #1: Cardio.


 Run 89 miles. Not as big as I’d like but I’m getting there.
Bike Nada
Swim 6 miles. Still ramping up and seeing improvement at Master’s Swim. (You still have time to donate to the Navy SEAL Foundation!)

Strength 4 sessions with Coach Jon & Coach Nick and The Tribe.

Races NOLA Blue Doo 2 miler and a 5K I’m going to forget happened.
Current Reads I finished The Silent Girls and bought another book, but I didn’t read much in September. I’ll have to catch up.
Current Obsession The new TV show Scream Queens. Oh and Veep. And Empire. Crap I’m watching a lot of TV!

Hail the OG Scream Queen!


 Current Song Eh…not much really thrilling me right now. Here’s hoping some new and better music comes out soon. It’s been all podcasts and classic hip hop….

I miss the classics.

Current Need An extra week in October. Not only do I love October, but I happen to be slammed this month with baby showers, bridal showers, and not one, but TWO half marathons!

Current Triumph Getting to the pool several days this week!

Not this pool.

Current Bain of My Existence Dry skin. Stupid chlorine. Any lotion I must try?

Buffalo Bill recommended.

Current Goal Working on my mental game at the races I have planned this month. If one more person tells me that my issues are all mental I’m going to run away and cry and never come back. See what I did there? Seriously though, I am going to see what I can do about this whole being more confident in my athletic self thing.


Current Indulgence Nada. I’m trying to eat healthier and avoid all the damn candy.
Current Blessings A really kick ass and amazing boyfriend.  
Current Excitement HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!!
