100 MILES... and you thought 100 posts are a big deal, ha :)

I hit 100 miles for the month of October yesterday. It was a big moment.

And now I'm done.

Not for good - just for October. No more running until Monday. My body needs a few extra days of rest. I can feel it, so that's what we're going to do!

In the meantime, there have been cookies. I made a whole bunch last night to take with me this weekend, and you KNOW I had to test them out. I only ate 3, but I know they'll be taunting me from the counter when I get home tonight. Chocolate chip. Chocolate oatmeal no-bake. Yeah, you know I made two different kinds.

I'm about to leave work and go get a pedicure... the one I earned by running all 22 miles of my planned 22 miler this past Saturday. I'm really excited. I haven't gotten one in ages, and my feet could definitely use some TLC before I go slaughter them next week in the marathon. Plus, my halloween outfit calls for sandals (which may suck since it's going to be cold, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed we'll be mostly indoors tomorrow night)... so I want to have cute toes!

This post really has nothing of substance. In summary, I ran 100 miles over the past 28 days since October 1st, I made cookies that I love to eat, and I will soon have pretty feet again.

Yay!

Fantastic!

Rest up and start a new month! I'd love to have a 100 mile + month...maybe November =).
