Oh goodness you guys. This morning’s run was absolutely fantastic! The weather was incredible and it definitely made my legs and feet all kinds of happy. I am hoping this fall weather stays around and blesses us for a while. Thank you baby Jesus.
Fall I have to say is my favorite time of year. Fall foliage, boots and scarves and all things pumpkin. The colors of nature to me just come alive. I am all about it. Here are just a few things that I love about fall running.
This pic was from November of last year. But isn’t it beautiful? I simply cannot wait until the leaves change into this shade down in TX.
–The weather cooling off just a tad after enduring crazy hot temps all summer long. As the weather cools off especially in the mornings I can feel my legs moving just a bit faster too. That hard work and dedication does pay off.
–Feeling the fall leaves underneath my feet. It’s a autumn lovers paradise.
–Getting to wear layers again. As you know in Texas for about 4-5 months out of the year (and sometimes longer) we are wearing nothing but flip flops, tanks and shorts. So when I get to bust out my half zip tops I get excited because it is oh so rare.
–ALL OF THE RACES. We have so many races coming up around this time of year in Texas. I love the fall themed ones like the Pumpkin Spice 15k and Halloween fun runs. And of course fall marathons are just the best way to celebrate running 26.2 style.
What are some things you love about running in the fall?
