Y’all, I just love fall.
The crunch of the leaves, the faint sounds of high school football I can hear from my back porch, the cider and pumpkin of it all. I know these things are all so cliché, and yet, I simply do not care: fall is far and away my favorite season. Even though the calendar says today is the first day of fall, “far and away” seems to be exactly where fall is this year!
Fall brings out the best things, truly. I bring my hoodies to the front of the closet, bust out the boots and dip my apple slices into caramel while snuggled up on my couch with a fleece blanket and a DVR full of new TV premieres.
That translates to running, too. Just to name a few of my faves: the long-sleeves-and-shorts combo, crisp morning air, and the way the leaves put on a show for us.
I know I’m not alone in my wish for cooler temps to hurry and get here, like, now. Since fall seems to be making a delayed appearance in my neck of the woods and in many others, I thought maybe some of you would like to join me in talking about your love of autumn. Who knows? Maybe, like with Tinkerbell and clapping, if we believe hard enough, it will arrive.
What do you love most about fall running?
