Fall, Fun, Random, Running

Currently and Hello October.

Happy October to you! I don’t know about you but there is definitely a change in the air. My 7 mile run was absolutely wonderful with a nice breeze. I almost did not want to stop but you know…I have this thing called a job and someone’s gotta do it.

Here are some things that I’m currently seeing, hoping…dreaming about. Loving this list from this gal’s blog so I thought I’d do my own.


Reading: D Magazine. They are definitely keeping me up to date on all things happening in my ‘hood. Plus, hello…the 25 things you must do in Dallas this October. I’m on it.

Deciding: To get in more patio time this fall. Preferably if this place is involved.


Seeing: My girlfriends more often. They make the world go ‘round.


Wishing: For pretty glittery pumpkins on my doorstep. Because everything is better with glitter. Or bedazzled.


Hoping: For some more trail running time very soon. Love getting off the beaten path.


Making: These oatmeal pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Organic rolled oats, banana, pumpkin, semi sweet chocolate chips. I kind of threw it together but it worked out really well.


Feeling: Like it’s time to bust out the wine colored nail polish. Just because.


Dreaming: Of apple cider sangria. Or apple cider in the crockpot. Both need to happen soon.


Wondering: When the high is going to be below 90 degrees down in TX. I’m thinking it may happen this weekend. Hallelujah.

Snacking: On roasted pumpkin seeds. Love it love it. They are super addictive.

Embarrassing: myself all the time while teaching classes at the gym. I’m kind of used to it though…haha…hashtag no shame.

Remembering: My very first marathon…Chicago on 10.10.10. Miss that city…and the Garrett’s popcorn.


Flipping: Over this southwestern spaghetti squash. I need it in my life.

Chasing: The morning sun. Always always.


Throwing: Some sort of wine and cheese party…very soon. Maybe for the holidaze.

Struggling: With being in the present. Always a work in progress for me.

Vowing: To get better at saying ‘NO’.

Eating: All of the fall things…anything with the words pumpkin or butternut squash in it. All day every day. Oh, and grape tomatoes. These are freaking fantastic.

Trying: Something new every time I go to a sushi joint. Loved the serrano yellowtail from this place.

Loving: My first fall leaf I saw on my run the other day.

Wanting: To see Las Vegas and then Hawaii. Oh so soon. Bring on November & December vacation time.

What are you currently making/wanting/snacking on?

  1. i want to go trail running, too! i need to make that happen at some point in my life. apple cider sangria sounds like a fantastic idea…and i love that your patio season is fall. 🙂 the cooler runs are so nice, i agree!

  2. Best October picture there with the street lamp. I wish my October looked like that! I did a 7 miler too recently and it felt so nice because it was only a “feels like 93 degrees!” It’s supposed to drop to the mid to high 80’s this weekend though. Hopefully it starts getting cooler where you run too. I don’t think it’s too much to ask for below 90 degree weather for fall!

  3. making: plans for family xmas cards
    wanting: to figure out a way to never have to go back to work
    snacking: Ben and Jerrys The Tonight Dough. Seltzer water. Sweet Potato chips

    LOVE that nail color!
