For her latest 365BarringtonTV report (see below) Catherine Goetze caught up with runners like Spencer Ruhlin who aced the race in lederhosen hand-made by his wife.

The Barrington Breakfast Rotary hosts this fun Halloween-themed race every year to promote physical fitness and health in a fun family atmosphere.  Catherine Goetze takes us straight to the race day action with her latest report filmed by BHS Junior Daniel Roth for 365BarringtonTV.

There were a lot of extra young runners who completed the Trick or Treat Trot 5K this year, thanks to the new Youth Fitness Plus sports program started by certified personal trainers and Barrington moms, Katie King and Suzy Gourdie.  Suzy sums up their mission by saying, “We’re really enthusiastic about running and fitness and health and we think it’s really important to teach kids at a young age to live active, healthy lifestyles.”

Youth Fitness Plus trains third through sixth graders to appreciate fitness and stay active with a focus on running and Katie says 17 of the kids in their “Supersonics Running Club” ran Saturday’s race.  “The Trick or Treat Trot is really well-run, family oriented and fun.  It’s a great first run for kids because it’s not too competitive.”

Hi guys! Today we'll be checking out some star-crossed lovers! 💔

No, **not** Romeo and Juliet! I mean first of all, the story of 牛郎织女 -- niú láng zhī nv -- dates back to at least the Jin Dynasty -- 250-420 AD 😱. Take that, Shakespeare! Also, Romeo and Juliet may be tragically "star-crossed," but, as the story goes, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu literally *are* stars -- on opposite ends of the Milky Way 😦.

Let's rewind. Zhi Nu is the youngest daughter of the Queen Mother of the West and the Jade Emperor (Hey -- we know who those people are! 😁).

Meanwhile, Niu Lang was a poor. sad, unloved cowherd. As many versions of the story go, though, the cow was magical -- which is never a bad thing 😂. The cow led Niu Lang to steal the clothes of a girl bathing with her sisters in a river.

As questionable as a method as that may seem, it worked! Zhi Nu and Niu Lang were married and had children ❤️.

But there's always a but. And this story's "but" is that the Queen Mother was not happy with this union. Niu Lang had a magical coat (that's another story), and when the Queen Mother tried to separate them, he flew up to try to join Zhi Nu in the heavens.

Unfortunately, the Queen Mother wasn't having it, and she separated the two with a river in the sky, only allowing them to meet on the 7th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar -- "Chinese Valentine's Day."
