1. Have you or are you running a race this fall? If so, how did it go? Yes, the Houston Half on October 26 and the Sugar Land 30K on December 14.

2. Has fall weather found its way to your area or does it still feel like summer?  It's been like a strip tease show.  Last Saturday we were in the upper 50's, today it was 77.  Next week, we're supposed to get 3 days in the 50's.

3. Do you have any bucket list races that you would like to run?  A BQ.

4. Favorite flavor of energy gel?  none.

5. What are your thoughts on Halloween?  Great time for parents to cave in and let their kids gorge on candy.  I did it, too.

6. Do you still dress up in a costume for Halloween?  Again, this year, I'll dress up as Mark, barefoot, but no curvature of the foot.

7. What was your favorite Halloween costume when you were younger?  Younger is a relative term, so I'll say it was in my 20's when I dressed up in a full Bishop's costume and went as the Pope.  That was fun.

1. Have you or are you running a race this fall? If so, how did it go? Lakefront 50/50 on 11/1

4. Favorite flavor of energy gel? Chocolate early in a race and nothing late in a race.

5. What are your thoughts on Halloween? I miss living in a condo because my wife really enjoyed lowering a pumkin with candy to the kids from the 3rd floor. We now live in a single story ranch.

1. Have you or are you running a race this fall? If so, how did it go?
I was going to do the Oregon Coast 50K on Oct. 18, but alas, events conspired to make that impossible. We're still going to the coast that weekend, though, and I hope they'll have something I can do at the race to help out.

2. Has fall weather found its way to your area or does it still feel like summer?
It's been annoyingly sunny and warm for most of the fall so far, but it's gray and foggy this morning, and rain is expected to arrive in a few days. So it looks like summer is over.

3. Do you have any bucket list races that you would like to run?
Not really. Lots of races look interesting, though.

4. Favorite flavor of energy gel?
Jet Blackberry.

5. What are your thoughts on Halloween?
It's the day after my birthday, so I've always been rather fond of it. Very Happy

6. Do you still dress up in a costume for Halloween?
Nah. I usually default to the "I'm dressed like a serial killer" line if anybody asks, though.

7. What was your favorite Halloween costume when you were younger?
My grandma sewed a lion costume for me one year when I was little, which was pretty cool. I can't even remember any of my other store-bought ones.

3. Do you have any bucket list races that you would like to run?Boston and NYC for sure.

4. Favorite flavor of energy gel? Roctane Island Nectar

5. What are your thoughts on Halloween? It's alright Smile

7. What was your favorite Halloween costume when you were younger? I was a big He-man fan when I was little. That was probably my favorite costume.

1. Have you or are you running a race this fall? If so, how did it go?
Yep.  TCM.  
http://www.365runners.com/t2843-twin-cities-2015-fighting-a-fade-for-a-three-fifteen

2. Has fall weather found its way to your area or does it still feel like summer?
Seems like most people are finding excuses to call it fall, but it's not.  Feels more like springtime.  

3. Do you have any bucket list races that you would like to run?
WS100.

4. Favorite flavor of energy gel?
Vanilla.  Mocha if I'm in the right mood, but usually can't handle it.

5. What are your thoughts on Halloween?
Good excuse to get fat.

6. Do you still dress up in a costume for Halloween?
Negatory.

7. What was your favorite Halloween costume when you were younger?
I guess it depends on your definition of younger, but when I was a senior in HS I dressed up as "wolfman" and my buddies and I turned a car into a pirate ship (including a mast out the sunroof) and drove around blasting the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack while throwing water balloons at unsuspecting children (and adults).  So, I guess Wolfman was pretty cool.

1. Have you or are you running a race this fall? If so, how did it go?

Chicago. Tomorrow. I'll let you know! Forecast looks great!!

2. Has fall weather found its way to your area or does it still feel like summer?

40s and light rain at the start of the Hartford Marathon (in 15 minutes - my daughter is standing in the chute to start her first half!), so YES.

3. Do you have any bucket list races that you would like to run?

I would love to qualify for Boston, but I think I'll need to live until 90 to have a chance for that!

4. Favorite flavor of energy gel?

Salted Caramel GU.

5. What are your thoughts on Halloween?

I've never liked it. I do not like dressing up in costumes. I am not good at thinking about what to be, how to put together a costume, nor am I very comfortable walking around dressed as someone or something and waiting for people to tell me they get it. Just not my thing.

6. Do you still dress up in a costume for Halloween?

Only if my wife, who is extremely creative and talented at things like that, makes me, but I will confess to being a pretty good sport about it.

7. What was your favorite Halloween costume when you were younger?

It was the devil costume that my mother made me in 3rd grade, that is until my friends figured out that the red pants were really PJ bottoms, and then the whole thing became quite embarassing for me!
