Pictures from my run on Sunday along my usual route
1. Knocking on wood as I write this.........this is the first fall I have not been injured in three years. Two years ago I took up biking because I couldn't run. Last year I took up swimming as I was once again told not to run. Those actually turned out to be good things as I have become this very new triathlete nut who is loving her new athletic life. But........nonetheless I am thrilled - I repeat - THRILLED - not to be injured this fall. I wonder how much the cross training I am doing now has contributed to this non injured status. I am certainly still running but I used to run 5 or 6 days a week and now I am running 4. Whatever the reason is......it is a beautiful thing to not be injured.

2. It is very hard right now to fit in the training I am doing. Work is overwhelming. I don't know why it is so much worse than usual but it is. I leave every day feeling like I should have gotten so much more done. While at work I don't have a minute. I eat lunch as I continue working. My friend, C and I both took great bike rides last weekend and have never had a second to chat about it. I have to believe the frenzied pace at work is anything but healthy. As I posted recently........even though it is hard to fit in..... the working out is keeping me sane.
Yes, I still love my cats. Took Rocco on the right
to an emergency vet visit Sunday. He has perked up
and seems to be feeling better.
3. I LOVE fall. There are so many things I love about it. I could even accept year round school if it gave me some time off in the fall. I love the colors of the foliage. I love the cooler temperatures. I love all the races although I don't love that triathlon season is over around here. I love pumpkin and all the wonderful pumpkin flavored things.......especially coffee! I love traveling to Maine when it isn't so crowded. (I don't know if I'll do this but here's hoping.)
Still so so colors. This weekend is supposed to be peak...
and raining. :(
And these pics had nothing to do with the post. Oh well.
