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.

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.
