Can you smell it?
I don’t know whether it is has reached your part of the world but up here in New England fall is finally starting to arrive. I say starting to arrive because I don’t want to get my hopes up to much. It has happened in the past that we have had these awesome cool days and then “bam” it’s 80 degrees again (sorry folks I don’t know this in Celsius but believe me it is warm!)
Today I was so happy to be outside running. It was in the high 60’s and it was the best track workout eva’ (that’s Boston for Ever!). Okay so it wasn’t really the best but it was the coolest and it is coming down to my last sprint track workout for this training plan. I am pleased to say that my 800’s were fast at the beginning, slower in the middle, and then the back half faster than the first half so overall good way to near the end.
Now back to fall…. Love it!!! So ready for it. One of my favoritiest seasons on earth. I know no word like favoritiest and believe me spell check does not like it either but that is the best way I can describe it. This summer has been humid and hot and really not ideal for training for a marathon but neither was winter with the quadrillion feet of snow we got. Now I can barely wait to get out of work to get outside and enjoy the cooler temps.
I don’t really have a favorite fall activity (besides running because who doesn’t love to hear the sound of leaves crunching beneath their feet and feeling energized with the cooler temps). Oddly enough living in New England, I have never been Apple picking and we are surrounded by Orchards (oops). Maybe we will do that this year. I do love to take a drive and see all the trees changing colors. The first year I lived up here I use to drive the same path which was always out of the way because it took me up a hill and I could see the leaves at different stages of color change.
Since tomorrow is the first official day of fall, I think it is time to get out and enjoy the falling temps. Dig out those sweatshirts and sweaters and spend some quality family time doing things outside because soon (if you are in New England) it will turn cold and the 4 letter “s” word will be falling from the sky and we will be locked inside spending quality time with our family members or getting cabin fever because we are locked inside together but I will save that post for a much later date.
Happy Fall Y’all!
What’s your favorite fall activity?
