The last long weekend of the summer has officially arrived, a bittersweet moment I have been looking forward to and simultaneously dreading. Cool running temps and pumpkin spice lattes are right around the corner, Soon I’ll be forced to trade in the tank tops and t-shirts for jackets and gloves. Darkness and icy, snowy and teeth chattering runs are in my near future. At least with the change of seasons brings a change in needs for gear and an opportunity to acquire some shiny (and sparkly) new running gear.
The best thing I can think of to do on a long weekend is to run, and run some more. This weekend I’ve got a 5 miler planned for today, a 7 – 8 miler for tomorrow, a rest day on sunday and another 5 on monday. Today is supposed to be hot hot hot like 90’s hot but the rest of the weekend looks like it will provide sunny, mild and maybe even cool breezes for my runs, like a taste of what fall has to offer.
What are your long weekend plans? Are you looking forward to the change in seasons?
