I just can’t get enough of the amazing colors surrounding me these days. I love this time of year.

I told y’all about my scenic drive on Friday. Well yesterday and today I spent time hiking and walking and took in some more gorgeous scenery.

oh the colors!

oh the colors!

beaches are fun in the fall!

Oh, and I ran the Trenton Half Marathon yesterday.


Full recap will be up in a bit but all you really need to know is I wanted to die at mile 4. I basically thought about the meal and adult beverage that I would be having at our post-race celebratory lunch. It worked. Visions of french fries and hard apple cider got me through =)

November is just an extension of Oktoberfest….Bring on the Strongbow Cider!


Big group! And lots of PRs. Some raced the 5k, some raced the 10k and others raced the half. Pick-yo-distance! Photo courtesy of Jane

Since I actually didn’t feel too banged up today I took my bike out for a short recovery ride. Instead of cruising the neighborhood I put the bike in the car and went to the beach to ride along the flat paved access road. First time that Schwinn(y) got to ride in Forest(er). All my wheels have nicknames!

I hope you had a great weekend too.

What’s your favorite thing about Fall or November?


  1. I do like running in the colder weather November and December are good–then I think it gets too cold.
    I like how your dog smiles for pictures!
    Good job finishing a tough race!
