Halloween fun

by - Monday, November 03, 2008

Nothing too exciting to report in the way of running. My calves were really really tight after Friday's 8 miler so I took the rest of the weekend off. It was darker than I realized when I got home from work tonight so poor planning on my part led to no run. I might try to hit the gym after work tomorrow. I'd go before but I'm going to be busy waiting in line to vote. (I think the running gods will forgive me for missing my morning work out to vote.)

P.S. I registered for the GW Law School 5K I mentioned a few posts back this afternoon. Attempt No. 2 at Shaving my 5K this Sunday!

Anyway, here's some pictures from the Halloween festivities this weekend.

Indiana Jones and the TV Guide. (My roommate works in the TV dept. at the Washington Post. She got a ton of interesting comments about her costume, including one from a creepy guy who was like, "Hey, so what's on tonight." Not creepy by itself, but totally creepy the way he said it.)

A blind ref, a fallen angel and the Hamburgler (without her mask on)

Emily, me and Sam getting ready to go out.

Soccer player and a ref. (It wasn't planned, I swear.)

Me and my fave! (AKA my college roommate Emily!)

  2. Hi Jess

    Great pics! Congrats on your great 8 miler.. make that 8.3 miler. It sounds like you really enjoyed the run despite the dying IPod. When it is cold my shuffle dies so fast... could it be time for a new one?

    Best of luck with everything and thanks for being so kind on my blog.

    I happen to think the soccer halloween costume was a must for you. It just fits.
