Last weekend, we all set the clocks to "fall back" an hour. How did you use your extra hour? Most normal people would say sleeping. And for people with small children, they would say "What is this extra hour of which you speak?" As for us, we say we ran back in time!
Well let me back up. First of all, Saturday was Mr. Marathon's cross country conference meet in Greensboro, NC. He finished off the season strong finishing 22nd in his conference with an 8k PR of 30:36!

|Whoops, he was too quick for me! I almost missed him!|
After he finished up and we went to eat, we got back home around 5. And we went to bed. We are totally lazy right??? Wrong! We went to bed in preparation for the Time Traveler Pi Miler run in Roanoke that would be held at 1:50 am Sunday morning. Mr. Marathon did this race last year and loved it, besides the weather. The premise of this race is that you start the race at 1:50 am, it's 3.14 miles (because the number pi is 3.1415.....), and daylight savings time makes the time fall back before the clock strikes 2:00 am, so you technically finish "before" you start!

I don't have any other races coming up immediately, but mister has his Spartan Beast coming up next week. After that, he will have completed the SPARTAN TRIFECTAAAAA!!!!!! Yeah, I don't really know what that means, but it sounds cool, right? Anyway, that's all for now! But definitely stay tuned, because we have a couple of big announcements to make....! Until next time, enjoy this picture of me dressed up like Skippyjon Jones for Halloween last week! (he's a children's book character who is a Siamese cat who thinks he's a Chihuahua... don't believe me? Read about him here or here!)
