Brrr! It's cold in here

Day # 145 ~ a.m. run
Will I ever figure out the outfit shot?

So I watch some old tweenie movies.  You don't like it well Bring It Onheehee
It's whatever gets you through the miles, right?

This week of running I have been pulling back a bit on the mileage.
46 miles as of this morning.  And only ran ONE double day this week. 

But mileage and running on the treadmill is not the excitement.  Running OUTSIDE this morning was and is again tonight! WooHoo.  It was so great after being stuck inside.

Is it just me or does everyone smell FALL in the air?  Yummy.  And by fall I mean warm food, cornstalks, pumpkins, and falling leaves!  I even wore my capris this morning.

This weekend is the first weekend of our local fall foliage festival.  And maybe a race for me.  Since Hubbs aka party pooper backed out , I am torn about running it.  You'll simply have to check back to see if I do or not.

What is on tap for your fall weekend?
Get out here and enjoy it!

Edited to add:
I went crazy and registered for another Ultra in March.  I already do the Seneca Greenway 50k on March 5th but today I went crazy and registered for the HAT Endurance 50k on March 19th.
Don't tell Hubbs!
Maybe someone wants to join the insanity??

  1. I am loving these cold temps, the fresh air, crunchy leaves! Even the extra darkness is somehow soothing and soo much better for sleep!

  4. I am finally feeling the chill in the air the last few nights. Looking forward to my race in Maine this weekend where temps are going to be in the 50s!

  5. No chill around here these days. After alot of rain, it got hot again. I'm sure the cold (wet) days will be here again soon, for now I'm enjoying the heat.

    Have a great weekend. I just got a phone call from a friend and she's going to surprise me with some sort of activity this weekend (biking/hiking/running - who knows). I love being surprised with that stuff.

  7. Do the race this weekend!

    I totally feel Fall's arrival... I've been on a pumpkin kick for the last couple weeks. I buy those small sugar pumpkins, roast & puree them, and roast the seeds with pumpkin pie spice (and add splenda after they're all roasted. YUM!). I use the pumpkin puree mostly for baby food, but yesterday I used it for some homemade pumpkin bread (with chocolate chips!) and also made some pumpkin butter. Both are currently freezing, to be consumed at a later date. :)

    Enjoying the fall this year, but bummed because it'll make the recently-started AM runs a little more difficult because of the chill.

    Enjoy the fall festival!

  8. I say you're on for this weekend! I have several friends who have run HAT before and always hear good things. I may consider it, although I am also considering Boston and not sure I could manage both (recovery takes me forever). But will keep you posted!

  9. Oh ya - Fall is here. I have been wearing gloves on my morning run / at least for the first mile or so. Our morning temps have been in the 40's and low 50's. This weekend we are supposed to get frost . . . we will see.
    I have been buying apples like crazy for the last couple of weeks and purchased my first apple cider of the season. Tonight just might call for a little warm apple cider with a touch of spiced rum. Oh yeah!

  10. I don't smell fall in the air yet but I am seriously looking forward to wearing capri's. After Boston I may consider running a 50K and would take you up on your offer.

  11. Maybe if I win the lottery, I'll use one of your 50K's as a training run for my 50-miler ;). Happy weekend girl!! xo

  13. Sunny but chilly here today. Love it!! I was in the attic today digging out long sleeves and jackets.

    We had 4-H kickoff this evening complete with hayrides and bonfire. Fall is officially here!

    Two ultras in one month? You are awesome!
