Bring on 26.2 and a Fall Bucket List.

7 miles all smiles this morning! My legs are feeling surprisingly good and spunky even after Saturday’s 23 mile run. I am seriously ready to rock some fall races here in the next couple of months. Like a caged animal. Bring on 26.2.


Yep yep…that coffee statement is absolutely true.

I thought since the best time of year is fast approaching…and the first day of FALL is tomorrow (woot woot!) I would jot down some things I’m looking forward to this fall season. In no particular order.

-Autumn at the Dallas Arboretum. Definitely bringing my camera to this one. Orange pumpkins everywhere.



-The State Fair of Texas. If you have been reading for a while you know this is a staple for me every year. I look forward to the midway games, wine garden, vendors and the car show. I just love it all.


-Making some fall treats. I have my eye on this autumn sangria and the bloomin’ baked apples. Freaking delicious.

-Running a Halloween half marathon. Which I am already signed up for. Gotta find a costume, like yesterday!

-Social run fun with friends. This is something I don’t get to do too often since I’ve been rocking some higher mileage so I’m looking forward to scaling the miles back and just doing some running for fun. Preferably with my flapper costume on. & with some fun beverages after.


-Go tailgating! Now that is something that I have not done in a long time. I am not a huge Cowboys fan either but I do like going to the games.

-Carving some pumpkins. Just for the seeds so I can roast them and gobble them up.


-Go on a fall picnic. Texas weather in the fall and part of winter is pretty perfect for that too.

-Get a ton of cozy scarves. No I am totally not over scarves yet. They will always be my favorite.

What’s on your fall bucket list this season?

  1. I love pumpkin seeds! And I enjoy being creative with pumpkin carving. it’s like decorating Easter Eggs, one of those things you can buy in the store nowadays, but I have so much pride in seeing what I can come up with. 🙂

  2. i also ran 23 miles on Saturday, not sure how i missed yours — congrats, girl!! glad you’re feeling so spunky. 🙂 my fall bucket list includes going apple picking, baking apple pies w/ mom, seeing the leaves upstate, and going on an Oktoberfest cruise…and running an upstate Autumn marathon. 🙂
