Autumn Preview of Sorts

A cold front passed through yesterday, leaving dry, crisp air in its wake. Fall is not too far off and days where temperatures reach the 80s are numbered. Yessir, bring it on.

As we transition towards autumn it's easy to start thinking about what's ahead. We're losing daylight fast, currently at a rate of 2:49 a day and accelerating. Along with that come the pleasant, cooler temperatures and the lack of bugs. The colorful leaves will also add significantly to the scenery. Fall is definitely my favorite season. We're getting there...

Ran 5.6 miles @ 8:20/mile pace.
Paved and dirt roads.
Very hilly.
Lower 60s, sunny.
Shorts, short sleeved shirt.

Autumn in Maine: There is nothing better. Ok, well, maybe watching beach volleyball:)

Yay autumn! My favorite season as well. Pumpkin spice pancakes with maple butter...after a nice long trail run. Doesn't get any better than that!
