Three Things Thursday

1. MacKenna came over earlier this week to carve pumpkin and enjoy all things fall. We had pumpkin ale from Trader Joe's, taffy apples, pumpkin spice pretzel (oh em gee yummy), pumpkin popcorn much and pumpkin cookies. I won't say that I'm sick of pumpkin, as that would never happen, but I may need to slow down my consumption just a touch. I did submit my pumpkin to Fake Meats' Halloween contest, and you should, too.
2. We got a family photo taken last night. I had a Groupon deal and have been bugging Tim for a family photo for a while. It's part of my 2012 goals to send out Christmas cards this year. The place regularly photographs dogs and asked me to bring a muzzle for Napoleon, after I told them he's a nine-pound yorkie. Yeah, not gonna happen. Many babies are born bigger than that, and I didn't see any kiddos with muzzles.

3. I'm knee-deep in planning my 2013 race schedule.  I'd really like to do a spring half, a mid-summer 70.3 triathlon and a late-fall marathon.  Too  much?  I love to run and I love to race, but if there's anything I learned from Zooma, it's that racing is a lot more fun when you're prepared and feel like you're going to PR.

Ha ha. Some kids do need a muzzle.

If you PR at every race, eventually you won't be able to PR anymore! :) But following a training plan and running a well executed race is rewarding :)

I also realized this year that racing is not as fun when you are trained for the race you are doing, and therefore you have no chance of PR'ing. I'm trying to keep that in mind as I plan my 2013 races.
