Yes, I am one of those people. I am that person that goes crazy over everything fall. EXCEPT for the Pumpkin Spice Latte. That thing gives me a horrible stomach ache. Aside from that, I literally overdose on pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin butter, apple cider, apple bread, apple butter, and all things fall. I usually reach a point where I can’t even stand to have one more fall food item. Apparently I am not very good at moderation. This happens every year. Then, I wait another whole year. Then, I lose my mind again. It has already begun.
I started the fall celebration a little early yesterday. I went to a fall festival, had my first apple cider, went to an apple orchard, had pumpkin frozen yogurt, and bought pumpkin butter. It is a slippery slope from here until I make the switch to Christmas activities. I do love fall, though. Everything is crisp and fresh. The running weather is pretty awesome, too.
My long runs have been slowly increasing. I am up to 17 miles! It actually felt pretty good! I am starting to get the hang of this fueling thing. I have even tried some new samples. The root beer gu is amazing, by the way.
Also, everyone at work found out that I wear a headlamp when I run in the morning. I am not ashamed, but it is lovely that this photo is floating around the school. Instagram is a blessing and a curse.
And on a final note, Lea from Running with Ollie won the Rock My Run giveaway! Hooray!
Anyone else lose control every fall?
