Happy September! I can't believe we're now heading into fall, though this weekend's temperatures would fool you. We've had warm air since Harvey pushed it up as he was making landfall, but now that's he's breaking up, we're are supposed to get fall temps soon. I need to get more sun screen this weekend to prep for my outdoor training runs.
Speaking of training, I got this article in my inbox this week, and after feeling like a deer caught in headlights, I do feel excited about Vegas. The first week of training has been 2-mile runs, including tomorrow's run, so nothing big to start off with. That made me feel better since I had already been running between 2 and 3 miles at a time this summer. Once I got my first training run done on Monday, I felt MUCH better about this cycle.
I need to get a couple things this weekend to help with training. I need new inserts, so I'll head back to Boulder one day during this 3-day weekend. All I want to do today is get OUT of town since the Rocky Mountain Showdown is today at 6pm at Mile High. That's the football game between CU and CSU, and I have no idea what the traffic is going to look like commuting out of town. I normally leave a little before 4, but I don't know when students are going to be heading down, or what long-weekend traffic will look like.
Other than errands and my training run, I don't really have plans for the weekend. Last weekend was busy, but fun, so I'm going to use this weekend as a recovery weekend. Sleep, run, strength train. I absolutely love fall, and my family has a few things planned, starting at the end of the month. We're heading to a pumpkin farm to get everything we need to Halloween, and my mom and I were going through my Halloween movies. She told me she's never seen Hocus Pocus. OMG! You bet I'll show it to her. Starting Oct. 1 the Halloween movies and TV shows come out!
And is anyone watching the US Open? I always associated the tournament with the start of fall when I lived in Boston. Labor Day marked the end of summer, with some hot days, but it cooled off pretty quickly. I don't know if I'm pulling for any specific player, but there have been quite a few scares and upsets.
