Fall and a 5k

I realized at some point about the middle of this week that fall had officially arrived in Boston. We have cool, 50 degree weather with crisp, fresh air and changing leaves. I honestly have no idea where September (or the summer) went, but I always love the fall. I love this time of year so much that I don’t even care that I’ve been jammed at work every day and that I come home completely exhausted or that I haven’t been feeling well. Everything about this season makes it worth it.

September was such a blur because we were actually busy with plans and exciting things every weekend, what a life! We went home to Florida to celebrate with our friends for their wedding (congratulations Jordan and Kasey!). It was such a joy to be there and to see everyone that we miss so much every day. I had not been home since our wedding in November and it was a blast.

Then last weekend, Chris and Barley cheered me on for the Shape Diva Dash 5k and obstacle course that I did with my friend Cassie. Cassie and I had signed up for it on a whim ages ago and I had every intention of doing some kind of training beforehand, but I never got around to it. Typical Audrey.

Needless to say, I was a bit worried that my athletic abilities wouldn’t be up to par and that I would have to “pass” the obstacles. Despite what it looks like in the photos, I did okay and we had so much fun! We ran almost the whole 3 miles and aced the obstacles. Plus, Chris and Barley were on the sidelines every step of the way, trying to sneak in and run with me or waving and wagging as we ran by. It was a lot of fun and I realized that running really isn’t as scary and hard as I always think it will be. Maybe one day running will be a new hobby of mine…but maybe not!

Today, Chris gets to plan our Saturday date night. I have no idea what is in store for us, but the nice thing about fall is that it’s the perfect weather for staying at home in your pajamas all day. That counts for date night right?

Happy weekend!
