Happy Friday! Also, Happy Fall! Anyone else excited about the official start of Fall this week? I say bring on the apple picking, pumpkin flavored everything, sweatshirts and cooler weather.
As usual, since it’s the last Friday of the month, I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions. Let’s get this party started!
I runfess that I am looking forward to my Fall half marathon
Yes, I know I still have to run the Chicago Marathon, but I’m also looking forward to running the Charlotte Half Marathon in November. As a BibRave Pro I get the chance to test out products and run races, so when I was presented this opportunity last week, I was happy to accept! I’ve been looking for a Fall half marathon in a state I haven’t run in, so this race is perfect. Also, Charlotte seems like an awesome city. I haven’t been there before so I’m looking forward to visiting! Want to join me? Use Code “BIBRAVERELAY” for $25 off the relay and “BIBRAVE5K” for $5 off 5K!
I runfess that I’m looking forward to shorter long runs
I am really looking forward to shorter long runs on Saturdays, which means I’ll also get to sleep in a little bit as well. While I always love the challenge of training for a marathon, those long runs take up so much time and my legs will appreciate the shorter distances.
I runfess that I hope I get into the 2020 London Marathon
I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I get accepted into the 2020 London Marathon. I don’t have a desire to run all of the World Marathon Majors, but I would really love to run the London Marathon. I’ve only been to London once but I loved it and I would be ecstatic to go back there again for the marathon. I won’t find out until sometime in October if I’ve been selected but if you want to send some good vibes my way, I’ll take them!
I runfess that I’m looking forward to doing Fall activities
Fall and Winter and my two favorite seasons. I love a lot of the typical “fall” activities because they are so much fun. I don’t dress up for Halloween, but I love putting together candy bags for all of the trick or treaters. It’s always so cute to see all the kids dressed up in costumes, especially the little babies and toddlers! This year I also want to go apple picking. There’s a farm about 35 minutes away that offers apple picking so I’m going to try to get there next month. They also sell the best apple cider donuts! While pumpkin is not my favorite food, I do like a lot of the pumpkin flavored items so I love to enjoy those in moderation during this season.
I runfess that I’m looking forward to another staycation next month
I still have a good amount of vacation time that I need to use up before the end of the year so I decided to take off the week after the marathon. This way I will really have a recovery week! I’m looking forward to sleeping in daily and just taking it easy.
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
I’m also linking up for Fridays with Fairytales and Fitness from Fairytales and Fitness.
Do you have anything you want to runfess for September?
