Things I’ve Thought While Running: Fall Fun Edition

Ah fall,  my favorite season! Well until winter rolls around, then winter is my favorite season. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But thatโ€™s besides the point! 

Fall running is a lot of fun!! The cooler weather, beautiful scenery, and getting to look at Halloween decorations, and itโ€™s just great! It also brings about a little bit of nervousness, because for the last 3 years in a row October is when my half marathon training starts winding down and the pre race anxiety kinda starts. So Iโ€™m not gonna lie, a lot of the thoughts Iโ€™ve had on the run as of late have revolved around how terrified I am for my upcoming half, because I missed out on a lot of training thanks to an injury…

“Oh my gosh Pennywise is visiting Kansas!”

Ok, but is this not the best Halloween decoration ever?!?

“Ooooooooh gotta rum through that pile of leaves!!” 

“The lack of crunch in the leaf I went out of my way to step on was very disappointing…”

“I wonder if the cemeteryโ€™s open? I need to run there at least once because โ€˜itโ€™s the season!”

“Foggy mornings are perfect in the fall!”


“Oh shit the Longview Half is in ___ days!” (The number changes every day because Iโ€™ve literally thought this every day that Iโ€™ve run this month ๐Ÿ˜‚)

“Does my knee actually hurt or am I imagining that?”

“I think Iโ€™m gonna die during this half marathon…”

“I know Iโ€™m going to be able to finish this half, but itโ€™s probably not going to be a fun experience.”

“Iโ€™m so glad I donโ€™t have to wake up at 5 in the morning anymore.”

“I wore too many layers.”

“I didnโ€™t wear enough layers.”

โ€œThatโ€™s a pretty tree!!โ€


โ€œIโ€™m never training for a half marathon ever again.โ€ 

โ€œJust kidding Iโ€™m totally doing this again next year!โ€
