Fall Running

Fall running is supposed to be glorious! Fall is runners season

Cool mornings and evenings, pretty sights, no humidity, post run seasonal flavored coffee drinks and sweets, crinkly orange and yellow paths, new gear, thumb holes, no ice or snow, shall i go on?

Fall running is not supposed to be filled with colds, sniffles, sore throats, no motivation, aches and pains, fevers, sniffly toddlers, poor fitting shoes, lost long sleeved shirts, etc etc etc…

I  can deal with life, with toddler(s), with work, with studying for a certification exam, with family drama, with a sick family member (fuck cancer) even with colds but UGH I cannot handle crappy fall runs… Luckily fall is NOT over and I’ve got time to turn it around and time for the universe to help me out on that.

I’m going to use the next 6-ish weeks of fall to embrace the ups and downs, take in the sights an roll with the punches.

How is your fall running going?





    My fall has been busy training for the Route 66 Marathon (Tulsa OK, Nov. 20). I have been very fortunate...the temps have been great, and I have not had much for icky weather for most of my long training runs. I've had a couple runs with a little bit of mist, and lots of humidity...but no rain. I just hope that doesn't come back and bit my buttocks on race day!
