Now that the fall colors have disappeared and we have experienced our first snowfall of the year it's time to recap some fun fall activities.
On Saturday, October 19th a group of us participated in the Run for the Apples at the Pine Tree Apple Orchard in White Bear Lake. It was a five mile race through the apple orchard. Despite the crappy weather conditions and the fact that we walked part of the first mile because we didn't even know the race had started, both Patrick and I did fairly well for our first timed running event. Out of the 642 runners, Patrick finished 228th with a time of 45:32 and I finished 388th with a time of 52:13. Nothing compared to my cousin Jake who ran his first marathon the next day in 2 hours and 39 minutes, but that's just crazy. I probably can't even one mile in 6 minutes, much less 26.2.
After our run we went home and enjoyed our Saturday. With no photo sessions that day we really took advantage and enjoyed the day. We made an awesome lunch of coconut chicken curry with cauliflower rice, watched a lot of television and then carved pumpkins that night.
