Weekly Roundup - October 19th

I'm sitting here enjoying a homemade pumpkin spice latte, reveling in a fabulous run.  It was really the perfect fall day this morning - very cool to start, clear, blue skies, and signs of the season everywhere.  I saw many pumpkins, leaves dancing in the street, and acorns crunching underfoot.  It was one of those runs that reminds you why you love running.  It was effortless and a nice change of pace from the very forced long runs I've been doing in preparation for Richmond marathon.

We both had good weeks in terms of workouts.  Mom is counting down the days until Marine Corps Marathon (I really can't believe it's next weekend!) and I'm one long run away from taper town heading into Richmond.  Definitely an exciting few weeks ahead of racing for these girls!

  4. Oh I just love runs like that! Great job this week ladies!

  5. Great job on your workouts. I have always wanted to take a tour of the ship but never had a chance to when I lived in the area. -L

  6. Great picture! Man, I wish we had fall here in the desert. It's still getting up into the 90s.
