Our Halloween Pics (Races in Costumes!)

A little late, but we figured you guys would still wanna see our Halloween pics! As always, we had to have couple-themed costumes, and Miss Bethany got a little creative this year. 

On the Friday before Halloween, we ran a 1-mile race around Boston Common. It was a lot of fun, and a number of our Team Racemenu friends also ran, so we got to hang out with them. After the race, there was a Halloween party at one of the bars downtown (with good free beer!). We did the mile in about 8 minutes, which Miss Bethany was very pleased with, considering her costume. :)

On Halloween, Miss Bethany ran a 10k (in costume, of course), and Ryan volunteered out on the 5k course (in costume, of course). (There was both a 5k and 10k.) She was hoping for 8-8:15 pace, but somehow ended up running 7:35 min/mile pace. She started off slow not sure how the costume would hold up but then began picking people off. She got 2nd in her age group.

Here's some pics from our Halloween:

Monster Dash & Bash 1-miler. Miss Bethany made her costume from scratch the night before, cost less than $15.

Our nephew, Robby. (2 yrs and 5 mo.)

Popeye, Spinach, and a Dragon

 Popeye and his beloved dog, Ginger

Here comes the Organic Spinach bag! Remember: eat 5-6 servings a day!

It was really hard to run because of where the armholes were, not to mention the heat of running in a plastic bag!

Popeye on baby-duty. Our other nephew, Josh. (2 months)

Stay tuned for Ryan's race report from his trail marathon last Saturday.

They do not require as much work as many other animals do and are really
fun to watch. Clearly, however, newspapers need to try harder to take advantage of new technologies to tell their
stories in ways that attract and involve readers, young or old.
Today, Most of newspapers are offering their online editions.
For documentation purposes and additional interest,
be sure to include the banner including the name of the news publication, as well as the date section.
A writer in San Francisco can read a story in
New York at 3:00 AM (EST) and have it ready to go in his own paper for
the Midnight (PST) deadline.

Still the health concerns mar the overall positive sides
of this economic growth as people take their health problems as the cost of
development which is indeed pretty higher. Eating white sesame seeds in the morning,
take alfalfa juice mixed with carrot juice and lettuce or third cup of
aloe vera juice every day are very good natural remedies.
You repeat the exact same procedure maybe once or
twice every week. Yet, lack of moisture can also cause breakage, split-ends and brittle hair.

Low self-esteem, hair fall, itching in scalp and
facial skin infections are common side effects due to
dandruff problems.
