|Kerrie's frosted hair mid-run|
Other than the temperature, the weather was gorgeous. The sun was out, the air was crisp (man, I love that word) and the frost made everything look like a hazy dream. To keep our minds off the dwindling feeling in our extremities, we laughed. A LOT. I told Kerrie about the time Travis accidentally pepper-sprayed my big sister Kristal in the face...in the house...in front of all my siblings...completely without knowing the little pink canister contained pepper spray. It was HILARIOUS (and to this day my entire family gives Trav crap about it, in a joking/loving way). She told me about the time she dodged riot pepper spray with Mr. T back in her college days. Pepper spray is no joke, people.
At a little stop to let some little string out of Kerrie's shoe (she thought it was something bigger I think), we took the mandatory blog pic. Right as I was taking this pic Miss Mom vs. Marathon commented that her hat made her look like a wiener head. And thus, the following pic was snapped:
Yes, I look like a goober.
But this picture is exactly what I love about running with buddies. There's nothing quite like sharing a good run, some great conversation and the extra stomach-workout that is laughing over pepper spraying in-laws and wiener jokes.
When we finished--after conquering HellYes Hill like total bada$$es--we took some fun pictures mimicking each others' Halloween costume contest poses.

But of course I couldn't pass up the beautiful weather without taking Goober to the new neighborhood park for a bit. She's not quite sure about the swings yet...
|Uhhhh, ok, you can get me out of this now...|
Happy Thanksgiving week everyone!!
