Six day countdown

SIX friends set out to run a marathon.

FIVE months of rigorous training.

FOUR AM wake up call to start off the day.

THREE pairs of running shoes.

TWO hundred plus miles of training.

ONE day where we push our bodies to new limits and where our perseverance and dedication are made manifest.

Some of my favorite things about Halloween are:

The orange-yellowish glow of a lit pumpkin illuminating a carved face.

Candy Corn and Plastic Pumpkins.

Children dressed as some type of fruit or animal.

Trick-or-treaters that are way too old to be trick-or-treating.

Small voices saying “trick-or-treat”.

Having an excuse to listen to creepy music.

The day after (Dia De Los Muertos).

Bags of candy.

Houses that pass out large size snickers bars.

The sound of leaves being stepped on in the dark.

Eating all the “good” candy first.

Knowing that it’s Fall.

Matt’s annual pumpkin carving contest.

A Nightmare Before Christmas.

Celebrating the holiday with my girlfriend.
