Happy Autumn!!!

24 Sep

happy fall yall

Yes yes, I know you’re surprised that I’m a day late with my Welcome to Autumn post! πŸ˜‰


I know there are a lot of folks who are sad to see summer end…I mean, I am too. But…ya know, not terribly so! I love summer. I also love autumn. And winter. And spring!! I LOVE seasons – which is why I had to move out of Southern California! No offense intended at all, but…buying a Christmas tree wearing shorts, flipflops and a t-shirt does not scream “Happy Holidays” to me πŸ™‚

Anyway, I digress!


After all my whining on Sunday about my own inability to follow through on my training plan, I figure Autumn is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf! (See what I did there?!)

So yesterday after work I headed out for the scheduled 3 miles — and managed to put up 3.5. Granted, that last .2 or so were run in circles in front of my house (even numbers and all!). I’m glad I got out there for sure! I’m discovering that my first half mile is the toughest so once I power through that it’s all good. Plus, there’s this…


And this….


And it’s only going to get better!! In fact, I’m actually getting pretty excited about my upcoming long runs since they’ll really take me out in the “country”!!

So — Happy Fall Ya’ll! Get out and enjoy the beauty this season brings!!

Oh, and about all the Pumpkin? I have to say I do enjoy a tasty pumpkin pie (slice! A slice!) and my mom’s Pumpkin cookies? (Definitely more than one!) but I don’t get all the excitement about pumpkin *EVERYTHING*!! Then I tried this for breakfast today ….


And, while I’m not gonna go out now and go Pumpkin Latte crazy, a little pumpkin Noosa makes for a nice occasional treat!

      Yes indeed my friend! I was skeptical…but it is tasty! Try Target (ps Noosa is on sale 2/$4 this week!)

    Every time I run – for the first mile I am chanting, “WHY OH WHY am I doing this?” πŸ˜‰
    I am on week 2 for Star Wars Rebel Challenge. Guess I should go chant and run now.

Tell Me Somethin' Good!!
