autumn oranges

/ eating and drinking like crazy /

nyc wine and food festival was a crazy experience - so much food and wine and drinks and nibbles! i like the idea of wine & food festivals, but that was just too big to enjoy properly. my stomach is way too small! another good event to check off my list!

halloween was pretty uneventful, but i did get to hand candy out to my very first trick-or-treaters. all six of them.

i've still been taking noli outside when it is nice! she is getting more bold now and will actually run back and forth chasing leaves.

/ nyc marathon opening ceremony /

reuben walked in the parade for the nyc marathon opening ceremony with his fellow kiwi mates and we were there to cheer him on. it was a quirky event, but the weather was amazing, central park looked great and there were fireworks and fun crowds!

and last but not least, THE MARATHON! it was a fresh and cool day to be spending outdoors, but luckily i didn't have to get outside until nearly noon and by then the sun was out and shining. mom, dad, AD and i cheered reuben on at the 18-mile and the 23-mile mark and despite him saying he didn't feel fantastic, he looked awesome. it was an inspiring event to attend and made me think that maybe i should set some more running goals for next year. we shall see. 

congrats, hubby, you did a great job ;)

First of all, I think it's hilarious that you take Noli out to play in the leaves...

Secondly, every marathoner needs someone to him that he looks awesome, even when he's sure he doesn't.

And finally...about those running goals...
