Saturday morning my friend Amy and I headed up to Frederick, Maryland with Neal and Magnolia to run The Great Pumpkin Run Maryland. Amy and I were both battling those nasty colds we caught from our kids last week, so we focused on having fun, getting fresh air, and running when we could.
The Great Pumpkin Run is a 5K, but you also have the option to run the Tough Pumpkin, which requires you to run the 5K while holding a pumpkin. It was pretty nuts seeing the pumpkins people were running with. I chose one of the small pumpkins and called it a day!
I’m really looking forward to our next few races. We have a 5K in 2 weeks, a 5 miler on Thanksgiving day, and then a really run 5K in December (which I’m hosting a giveaway for tomorrow!!). Saturday was so much fun and I loved running the race with Amy. She was an awesome running buddy!
