Yep, I said it. I DON"T like Fall. I've never liked Fall and now that I run, I like it even less.
I hate that in between weather. Where it's too cold for shorts & t-shirt, but if you wear long pants and long sleeves, you just want to rip them off half way through your run. But if you wear shorts, especially at races, you're cold prior to the start then you are freezing afterwards when you're drenched in sweat and you are starting to cool off.
Blah.... It was a cold and drizzly out this weekend and it hit me that summer is really over. I love summer. Give me hot and humid days everyday. I can't get enough of them. Call me crazy, but I enjoy running in the heat. Sneakers & shorts that's all I need.
But time to face reality.
I ran a 5k this morning. I got there an hour prior to race start and I couldn't shake off the chills. I had to do a couple "warm up" runs just to shake it off. It was a good turn out. Definitely a lot more people this year than there was last year. Came in 6th place over all with a time of 21:27. I didn't hang out after the race. I said my hellos to a couple of familiar faces, but then I was out. I just wanted to go home and throw on some sweats pants on and watch some football.
Football..... now that's about the only thing I like about fall. :)
Have a great week everyone!
