Well hello October! October is my all time favorite! Halloween is the best time of the year, I don’t care what anyone says. I had a stellar September, what with that little ironman and all…but it’s on to October and ALL THE HALLOWEEN!
Run 103 miles
Bike 290 miles
Swim 11 miles
Races Ironman Chattanooga!
Current Reads I finished Unbroken yesterday so it doesn’t count for September, but I need to point out that it was amazing and you should read it right now. It’s about an Olympic runner in the 1930’s and 40’s who ends up fighting in WWII and his dramatic survival after his plane crashes and he ends up in a Japanese POW camp.
Current Obsession I got nothing.
Current Song I have been jamming to my favorite Halloween-esque songs. My favorites are Dead Man’s Party (Oingo Boingo) and Werewolves of London (Warren Zevon).
Current Need Perhaps to win the lottery? Or just find an extra $50 laying around. I’m ironbroke. Haha.
Current Triumph Again, Ironman Chattanooga.
Current Bane of My Existence An angry saddle sore that doesn’t want to go away even though I haven’t even looked at my bike since last week.
|It might just be.|
Current Goal Get back into a normal eating routine versus eating everything in sight.
Current Indulgence Pistachios. They are my go to snack right now. Delish.
Current Blessings Not getting post race sick. Yet. Cross those fingers!
Current Excitement Halloween parties and costumes! And going to Vegas next month! (See: ironbroke. Who wants me to do their laundry? I only charge $1 per shirt.)

#7 You Are Amazing!! Have a wonderful rest of the week, month, year, finding your routine, & NOT being sick!!! Big Hugs & Positive Vibes!!!
Awesome list! I think that book is being made into a movie. There might even be a little documentary out there about that olympian. I know I saw something somewhere.
If you find any extra money, send some my way so I can fly to JAX in February. Please and thankyou 🙂
I love October, too! And yes, no one told me that tri is so freaking expensive. Ironbroke is definitely a thing!
I love Halloween so much!! I had the greatest porch design for our house this year and now laziness has set it and we have so few trick or treaters, that my motivation to decorate has gone to the pooper.
Hahaha so #Ironbroke! Takes a whole to recover.
I also had some major residual chaffing post Ironman.The bright side is that every time you sit down you get reminded of how awesome you are!
You did an ironman? 😉 vegasssss. I want to come!!
I'll be at R&R Vegas next month too. It's my first half, so I'm too nervous to even think about channeling Elvis!
