Happy Fall!

I'm positive I have mentioned this before, but fall is my very favorite season. It just feels like home. And I love storms. The kind that make you want to curl up under blankets and watch movies by the fire. That's exactly the type of storm that started on Friday. After school, I climbed into bed, watched TV, and didn't ever really leave.

On Saturday, I let myself sleep in before getting up and doing another 1,000 calorie workout from Fitnessblender. Then boyfriend, my sister, the baby, and I headed to the college town for the annual fall solstice festival. It's my favorite fair of the entire year. On Saturday at 1, they have the Samba parade.

It's pretty fantastic to watch the people dance in flashy clothes down the street to loud drums.

Also, Bigfoot was in attendance. Everyone can stop looking for him now. I found him.

This morning I woke up at 7:30, thought about running but fell back fast asleep until 10. It was storming again, after a break on Sturday, so I chose the treadmill. At .40 mile, my magazine (yes, magazine) stopped the treadmill and put me in cool down mode. Then at 7.3 miles, the power shut off so I had to switch treadmills. I kept going for 2.2 because 7+2=9. Except I had totally forgotten about the .4 in my mind, but added it in on the calculator and was at 9.9. I couldn't let that go, so I finished the tenth of a mile. I ran 10 miles accidentally because I'm bad at math, and REALLY bad at math after running for over an hour.

I sped home to meet my mom to head back to the fair. Today was the All Species parade. Yep. This is my home, and I love it.

There were more huge puppets. His hat says, "Gone Squatchin'"

It started raining again, so we went home and I did homework (for the first time all weekend) until I went to dinner at my dad's and finished the night with this.

And a whole lot of this.

A great start to fall!


  1. Totally a great start to fall!!!!!
    Yay for 10 miles and being bad at math! I'm bad at math too :)

  2. I have run SO MANY extra miles because I'm bad at math. I can't even tell you how many (obviously, because I'm bad at math) times I've thought that I was x miles from home and added it wrong to the number on my Garmin. Glad I'm not the only one.
