Halloween Half Marathon

I was able to do a half marathon with one of my good friends Kim yesterday. It started about 3 miles above Sundance and ended at the Riverwoods mall in Provo. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. Kim and I have been training for the past couple months and it was definitely worth it! About the ninth mile both of my calves started cramping and I swore I would never run another one in my life, but I am already looking for another one to do! It really is addicting!!

About a 1/2 Mile Left!!!

...Carving Pumpkins...

A few nights ago Cam and I decided that we needed to carve our pumpkins that had been sitting on our kitchen floor for the past week. So we decided to make one my favorite recipes of all times while we did it. We made caramel sauce and dipped my grandma's apples in it. (Just a tip for people who are melting the little caramels in your microwave, don't put it in for two minutes and leave!! It will make a huge mess of your microwave and dish!!) After we finished cleaning up the huge mess, we were able to dip our apples and have a good time. We watched Karate Kid while we carved and had a really great night!!
