Indeed I love sharing my plans on this platform. However, I’m always afraid of what could happen once I post it here: what if I fall short, what if I decide not to do it, what if this, what if that. Who cares, at least you tried. If all else fails, at least it’s the final day of September and what more could go wrong this year?
Fall makes me excited! There’s pumpkins and cooler weather and races and lots of coffee. Thanksgiving, leaves falling, no more mosquitoes, and extra blankets. Shall I continue? No matter how basic you may think I am, fall is hands down the best season.
Notably this fall I am not racing; however, I will be training for a race early December. Surely I’ve mentioned it, ohhhh, 5 times. December is winter, not fall, no matter where you live. Except on the other side of the globe. I made my race plan, consulted with no one, and intend to dig deep for approximately 8 weeks. It’s not long. Could be my demise. So we’re just gonna wing it!
While everyone else is soaking up the final hours of daylight, I’ll either be lacing up for a post-work run or going to bed early to capitalize on an AM run before the world wakes up and ‘needs things from me’.
Bring on the gloves! It sucks when my fingers are cold.
I ask you –
Do you, too, enjoy pumpkins and leaves?
Who else has perpetually cold hands/fingers?
Why are people so needy?!?

eh, so what were your plans? you did mention 5 times? We readers have short term memory. December is still fall here for me. I once had a good race in Dec (mild 60 deg weather). Winter might come early this year. It’s too cold for me to run lately
Hey Antin! The original plan was to run a marathon in November. It will happen one day though. I would take 60° weather every month if I could! Hope you have a great day!
