Whew! August was a great month but I am ready for some fall fun, this morning I needed my headlamp for my morning run for the first time. I am looking forward to some cool runs, changing leaves and everything pumpkin!
Wow, look at those Bison. It seems like you have had some pretty fantastic running adventures (among other things) over the past month. I would love to volunteer at one of those ultra events. I bet being at the finish line was unreal. I’m with you on the cooler mornings, fall colors, and pumpkin! Cheers!
What a fun month, Beth! Sounds like training is going well! Beautiful running scenes and so cool your mom placed second… congrats to her! (Also, so cool she does tris!) Totally not ready for fall in Minnesota! It’s crisp here!
