3 Things Thursday

1. I really, really, like REALLY want to run this...

It's on Dec 4th and it's a NIGHT run!!! How awesome is that?? They had a special price registration going on that closed today. Price for both half and full was $121. I was almost about to register for it, my love even told me to register. But I hesitated and now it's too late to get the special price and registration doesn't open up till May 31st. But I don't mind paying a few more bucks cause I'm not really a gambler anyway and I'd rather spend my extra money on races, clothes, shoes, races, etc. I think it's probably for the best I didn't register cause it will give me some time to think about it. I don't know if I want to run the half or the full. The full has a cutoff time of 4 hours 30 minutes and is capped at 5,000 runners. By the time registration opens up again I will have at least one more marathon under my belt so I can better judge what times I'm capable of running 26.2. But I'm really leaning towards running the full.

2. I'm SUPER excited for my 5k on Saturday! I'm really hoping to get an awesome time. Not sure yet on how creative I will get with my outfit. I know I will be wearing some knee high socks but don't know if I'll go with a skirt or capris yet. I had some glittery shamrocks on last year so I might go to the store and see if I can find something similar to put on my outfit again.

3. Rose over at Eat, Drink, and Be Meiri is hosting a giveaway in honor of surpassing 100 followers HERE She is the master of wearing costumes. Don't believe me? Then check out this post of her and her husband playing dress up HERE aren't they so freaking cute! Well one of the requirements is posting a pic of you in your best Halloween costume. I'm going to say last year was one of my bests. I was the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.

Every queen should have her own throne. I wanted to keep it after the party but it didn't really match the rest of our furniture.

Yes I know I am evil for dressing up my dog as the White Rabbit. Doesn't he look cute though? :)

My love dressed up as the Dark Mad Hatter
So go check out her blog and enter her giveaway! And post some pics of your best halloween costume cause I want to see them!


  1. LOVE your Halloween costume!! Halloween is one of my fav holidays. :)
    Good luck on your 5k!

  2. Oh I LOVE that costume! Ow ow!!

  3. amazing costume. i've never gone all out like that... maybe this is the year i get a great costume!

  4. Your costume is AWESOME. And super hot.

    And yeah, I'm called Socks at the gym because I'm always sporting my crazy knee socks.

  5. I love your costume! Very sassy. :) I'm kind of obsessed with Alice in Wonderland. LOL.

  6. Love the costume!!!!!!

    And now, about RnR Vegas. did you read my recap from last year? AWFUL AWFUL marathon...the half would be amazing, but the full and BAD BAD BAD! you have actually motivated me to do a post about this, it is that bad!! I got the special email too and seriously considered doing the half. The half course was amazing, right down the strip! Out and back and just great (never mind that they didn't have any water at the mile 6, 7 and 8 water stops because they couldn't fill the cups fast enough). The last half of the full was through the industrial area, lots of twists and turns...totally boring and NO fans. I can only imagine running it at night with the strip off in the distance...longing to be THERE and not where you are on the full course.

    I truly hope I haven't bursted your bubble...BUT the half would be great but the full...please no! =) read my recap if you want to know details.

    But back to the costume---Still think it is the best ever!!!

  7. You look so hot as the Queen of Hearts!! LOVE it! Can't wait to see how you did on your 5k :D

  8. Good Luck on your 5k today! Your halloween costume is great, I love it!

  9. Freeaking AWESOME costume!! You are a hawty!!

    My hubby and I registered for the RnR Vegas half--so cool that it is going to be under the lights! Let me know if you decide to do it!!
