It feels like yesterday that I was sitting down and looking forward to everything summer was going to offer. It then seems like I woke up the next morning and summer was basically over. This past summer was certainly a whirlwind and certainly provided for some new memories. Now that we’re skirting on the line of Fall, I am looking forward to another season and even more memories made over the next few months. So, for today’s Five Things Friday, here are 5 things that I am looking forward to for the Fall.
1 – PUMPKIN!! Let’s be honest, we all know this is number one in our hearts. Since I hate coffee, I am not a PSL girl, but I do love all things baked pumpkin. Whenever I even get bit by the bug, I’ll whip stuff together in the kitchen even. I think my favorite pumpkin snack are pumpkin chocolate cookies probably followed by pumpkin fluff. Now that fluff stuff is just addicting, so I try not to make a ton of it because I could eat it all in one sitting.
2 – One of my favorite fall things is the start of football! I absolutely love watching college and NFL games. Just something about having football back that makes it seem like Fall is finally here. I’m also excited that my flag football team starts next week! I am actually taking off the first week since I have my big race 2 days later, but very excited to get back out there.
3 – It doesn’t seem like it now, but I know sooner or later there will be cooler temperatures around the corner and less humidity. I’m just absolutely sick of this weather and it seems to still be lingering. It will be so nice to not have the death humidity around anymore and can maybe breathe again during runs.
4 – One of my absolutely favorite things about Fall is the foliage. I am lucky to live in an area where we get to enjoy the color changes of the leaves, but looking forward to also getting to other areas this year to enjoy them. Hopefully when I am in NY for Wineglass weekend, the leaves will have started to turn and have a nice display. Just something about that nice chill in the area and the change of leaves that I really enjoy about Fall.
5 – Last but no least, it’s almost racing season! Sure, I race all year round, but it seems through mid-September to November I always cram as many races in that I can. In this time frame I’ll have 2 marathons and 5 half marathons. Races certainly are much better in cooler weather, so it’s just best to cram in as many as I can.
