We are almost a month into fall and I am facing the reality that it is here. Since I can’t fight Mother Nature, I figured I would share three things I’m looking forward to this fall.
Cooler running temperatures
I am training for a half marathon so running in cooler temperatures makes life more bearable. I run three times a week. I am running before the sun comes up on Saturdays and Sundays, which has temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s. When i am running my Sunday long runs, which are up to nine miles as of this weekend, allow me to feel a little more at ease.
Spending time with friends
I am not in competition prep, which means I have a little more flexibility with my time and what I do with it. While I am in prep I am very strict with what I do because I have a target. The smallest things can send me sideways so I try to limit distractions.
In just this short amount of time since I came off of prep, I have been able to go to the movies, eat at restaurants and just hang out.
I recently went to see Fantasia at the South Carolina State Fair. I had forgotten a couple of her songs, but had a great time with my coworkers. Live music is always the best. It had me running back to my car to listen to Fantasia on Spotify.
I am such a summer person but this fall, Shaun and I are going to do some fall activities. We are going to go to a pumpkin patch, apple picking and a corn maze. I have wanted to do a corn maze for a while but never did it. So, we are going to do that for sure. I already staked out which one already.
I honestly wish I could fast forward to summer, but I know I must embrace this fall season while it is here.
What are you most looking forward to this fall?
