Halloween

Did everyone have a fun Halloween night? I did! I spent the evening volunteering for the ZombieRunner Halloween Half Marathon and 5 mile race. The event started in the evening at 6 pm, so by the time runners were a few miles in it was dark. Spooooky. I had a blast volunteering, but I admit I wished I was running in costume when I saw everyone. I decided not to run because I'd been racing a lot lately, but I took advantage of the opportunity to wear a fun costume anyway.

If you haven't checked out Coastal Trail Runs or Zoom Running events, I highly recommend both. I've volunteered for two events and run one in the past couple of months, and I love the community of people. CTR events are true trail runs, hilly with amazing views; Zoom events are flatter and faster, some dirt and some paved depending on the event. They are both organized by the same race director, who is super organized and an ultrarunner himself.

And now, check out a few event photos from Halloween!

After the race, I met up with Alisyn and Cynthia for drinks at Steakout in Mountain View. Free pint for those of us in costume, win! This is a fantastic place for food and has a huge beer selection. Scarily, they also had a grim reaper...
