Crisp, Fall Day

I'm sad that summer seems to be gone, and I actually just realized over the weekend that it's getting darker, earlier. The cool, fall nights make for PERFECT sleeping weather, but I could use some more summer weather. Just not ready to let go yet.

Anywho... spent most of the weekend back on the crutches just to be safe. My foot was hurting and I really don't want to start back at square one. It ended up being a smart move and I'm pretty much back to the final phases of recovery. Been sporting the running shoes to the office this week, but other than that no complaints. I'm taking a few more days to just make sure it's okay before I head back to the gym. Getting a little taste of it again and then stopping has been brutle. I just wanna get into it again.

Plus, I realized over the weekend that my marathon would have been next weekend. I should be in marathon-ready shape and I'm no where near it.

On the bright side, the weekend was filled with dinners out with friends (and some great beers from around the world), time with family, a wedding shower (of course) and a whole lot of Mario Kart Wii -- I'm totally addicted!

Work is busy this week and so I should be getting back. Happy Tuesday everyone!

I'll trade you weather then. You can perpetual summer heat and humidity from FL, and I'll take your cool, crisp MI fall. I'd strangle someone for cool, crisp air.

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. I too am not ready for summer to be over. Before I know it, I will have missed Fall and not have enjoyed it while it was here. *sniff, sniff*

Ah, you're making me miss the northern states! I long for some crisp weather instead of the furnace we are still "enjoying" down here. Satan just lives too close to Florida.

I noticed a little *sarcasm* when you mentioned another "shower." ARGH I am SO sick of wedding showers and baby showers. Really So Sick of Them!

Fall is my favorite time of year.

I think taking a conservative approach with regard to your foot is a good plan.

Fall is also my favorite time of year. I love the cool crisp air. Hang in there as far as your foot goes. Take it easy and no worries about not being in marathon shape. You are doing what you need to be doing.

Take it one day at a time. You will be marathon-ready at your own pace.
