How was your first weekend of October? It was absolutely beautiful here in Boise. It doesn’t even feel like fall except that it gets dark so early.
Saturday morning I somehow managed to turn off my alarm instead of hit snooze. So when I woke up at 8:09am, I panicked because my running group was meeting at 8:30am. Luckily I had all of my stuff together so I quickly poured coffee, grabbed an english muffin and got ready to run out the door. I let my friend in the group know I was running a few minutes late and headed to our meeting spot at Whole Foods.
We ran 10 miles and then met back up at Whole Foods for some coffee and I treated myself with a Rice Flour Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin. It was very tasty and I chatted with the group for a few before it was time to head home and get ready for work.
After dinner I put on my compression socks, turned on the fireplace and got comfy on the couch to watch the Boise State Broncos take down the Rainbow Warriors of Hawaii. Steve and I actually started dating just over 9 years ago when we had our first “date” during the BSU vs. HI game. Still can’t believe it’s been that long and that matchup will always make me happy as a reminder of it.
Sunday morning I woke up early and sipped coffee while reading blogs before Steve got up. He offered to make pumpkin pancakes and I definitely took him up on it! They were so yummy and a great pre-run breakfast.
I ran 5 miles after breakfast along the Oregon Trail area just down the street from our house. I love this area because the trail is wide and slightly soft and it’s so cool to appreciate the history of the area. Plus the fall colors were gorgeous!
After all of that we came home and cleaned up the garage, weeded, mowed the yard and made sure enjoy all of the sunshine of the afternoon!
