November is usually an exciting month for me, and this year is no exception!
Packet pick up is the 11th, the Longview Half Marathon (which I will be running for the second year in a row) is on the 12th, my birthday is the 15th, the new Pokémon games come out on the 18th, and Thanksgiving is the 24th, Thanksgiving is when the Runner’s World winter running streak starts. Fun fun fun!!! 😄😄😄
So my plans for this month look a little something like this; finished half marathon training, pick up my bib number, run the race (no big deal, right 😉), and take an almost two week break off from running.
During my almost two week break I get to celebrate my 25th birthday and play lots and lots of Pokémon. Lots and lots of Pokémon. 🙂Then it’s turkey time! We’re still not sure what we’re doing for Thanksgiving. It’s nearly impossible to spend time with both our families since my mom, dad, and one of my sisters are in Colorado, and most of Luke’s family still lives in Illinois, with the exception of his mom and two of his siblings who live in Minnesota now. Haha yeah, I think we may just stay home this year. No matter what we do though, there will be turkey!
Along with stuffing my face with turkey and all sorts of yummy food, I’ll be starting the Runner’s World winter running streak, which is just a challenge to run at least 1 mile every day, starting on Thanksgiving and ending on New Year’s Day. I attempted to do the streak last year, but I ended up getting hurt and was unable to complete it. I have a good feeling about this year though! I’m totally kicking this streaks ass!
So I’ve go a pretty basic plan for this month and that makes me super happy! Now if only the weather would start to cooperate! I’m so so so so sooooo ready for the cold, but the temperature just hasn’t dropped yet…At the very least, it’s not in the 90’s and crazy humid anymore. I’m definitely glad to be done with the nastiness that is summer.
Do you have any fun November plan?
