Fall has finally arrived here in the Old Dominion. Summer is officially gone and we are welcomed by the early morning temps of 45 and as the morning yawns and the sun comes out we warm up to 65-70. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons of the year.
What's Awesome About Fall....
~I love Sunday & Monday football games. I love to get in my sweatpants, sweatshirt, & watch the Redskins play (Please fire-Jim Zorn). I might not be sitting in front of the TV the whole time, but I have to have the sound of the game piped through the house on my Bose speakers. This ritual of fall brings me back to a better time when I was a kid, so I feel somewhat nostalgic.
2. Fall Runs
~Not too cold, not too hot, just right! Virginia sure is a purty time to go on a run, the leaves are beautiful!
3.) Pumpkins on a porch
~I love the look of pumpkins on a porch. Doesn't have to be my porch, just anybodies porch. It says to me, "Welcome Fall!" I hope I don't leave mine on the porch until Christmas this year. ;)
4.) Pumpkin Spice Latte....
~Dayum you Starbucks! 300 calories (Tall) ain't too bad, right?
5.) Soups & Stews
~Back to cooking up soups, stews, & liquid elixirs. I love a cool night with hot soup and fresh bread out of the oven to go with it.
Triathlon/Racing season is officially over and I'm still thinking about what races/rides I want to do next year. I absolutely fell in love with the century, so maybe two next year or one century and one metric. I know I'll attempt to conquer the sub 2:00 in March when I do the Shamrock 1/2 Marathon but I'm not sure what else I may do in 2010.
How does everyone feel about the end of the season?
Happy Fall Ya'll!
