October brings so many great events to our town. The one my friend and I have had first and foremost in our minds lately is the Waddell-Reed Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K.
Last Sunday morning Karen and I completed the last long training run for our upcoming 1/2 marathon this Saturday morning!! It's hard to believe that we started our "official training" in June, when October 18 seemed so far away.......and now it's here and we are ready!! It will be a lot of fun!
The PINK sticker is one I bought for my car last year when I did my first half!! It always makes me happy to see it. I remember what a good time I had doing that run and how proud I was for having set and completed that goal.
October in Kansas City also brings the beginning of the holiday shopping season with the Jr. League Holiday Mart!! Patty and I attended that show today. It was full of lots of bling and clothing booths along with many, many other vendors selling all sorts of items.
This gorgeous PINK tree was smack dab in the middle of the whole thing!!
THE SCHAEFER HOUSE, from Jefferson City, MO, is always one of our favorite booths.
Finally. . . .the best thing that has happened in October in Kansas City for nearly three decades. . . THE ROYALS ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES!!
My oh my....this town is rocking after our BOYS IN BLUE swept the Orioles yesterday to win the American League Championship!!
Everyone is walking on air and sporting blue and just feeling the joy of watching our young, selfless ROYALS play their hearts out. They are truly a TEAM. . .with a new hero each and every game!!
Now, if I only had $1.000.00 I could get a standing room only ticket to the first game which is being played at our Kauffman Stadium . . .OR I can watch it on TV and be just as happy!!
So for more PINK and Fall...please visit Beverly's blog HOW SWEET THE SOUND! You will find lots of other bloggers ready to share their finds with you this weekend!!
HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!
