Welcome to October. I kind of love this month. Partly because it’s my birthmonth and while I don’t actually celebrate all month long you better believe I pull out the “but it’s my birthmonth…” whine on occasion! And partly because October’s weather means leggings + boots + sweaters + scarves are back to being a staple in my life…and will stay a staple for about 5 months because Colorado is just that awesome!
Since the blog has been all about my running I thought I’d kidnap this “currently” post idea from Lynne to get some random thoughts + feelings out there without boring you all to death! So, currently, this is what’s going on in my life…
…discovering new music, like LP, an artist that pairs nicely with Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson station.
…attempting to budget, like the grown adult I’m supposed to be, even if it means I can’t buy all the gear.
…adding to my “grown adult” to-do list with fun things like oil changes and dentist appointments.
…truly enjoying my time away from running, sleeping in until 7:30am is amazing, btw!
…planning a long weekend trip to the PNW, just because I can and to see a few smiling faces!
…playing Betty Crocker with my crock pot, so much soup + stew!
…killing spiders, the one part of fall I hate, especially with an old house/poor fitting screens!
…binge watching New Girl, Parenthood and How I Met Your Mother on Netflix, don’t judge!
…eyeballing ultrasignup.com, yup, I’m ready to start planning for next year’s races!
…finding happy in the little things, because that really is what life is all about, right?
…getting excited to hit the trails again, my body is nearly ready!
And there you have it, my life in a tiny little nutshell. It’s amazing how much extra time you have when you’re not up early to go running and spending your weekends on the trails. I’m missing my trail time but I’ve truly enjoyed my couch time…and ice cream time, because you bet your booty the ice cream is still happening on a [nearly] daily basis!
Happy October y’all…get outside and enjoy it!
