Friday Five: Fall Preview

I cannot believe this is the last Friday of the month – and with school starting for my boys next week, it’s really the last Friday of the summer! While it has been a wonderful summer – I am a Fall girl and love that my favorite time of the year is just around the corner!

Fall preview

So much to look forward to this fall, including….

Cooler Temps — While it wasn’t as brutally hot as some past summers, I’m just much more partial to the crisp cool days of fall. I’m happiest in jeans, boots, sweater…you get the idea.

Apple Picking — One of my favorite family fall traditions!

Cooking — We pretty much live off the grill during the summer – which I must admit is largely my husband J’s domain. But once fall kicks in, I love to get back into the kitchen and dive into some of my favorite recipes and to try out some new ones!

Football —  If you’ve been around here for a while then you know I’m a huge football fan and cannot wait to watch my beloved Patriots take the field.

Fall Races — Hello Philly Half! Having not done much racing this year, I’m looking forward to running 3 (maybe 4) races this fall.

I could go on and on about the good things of fall! I’m linking up with Courtney, Mar and Cynthia again this week so be sure to stop by and check them out.

What are you looking forward to this fall?




  1. I adore fall but I don’t want to jump the gun on it. That said we’re still hot, humid and stormy here, which is very un-fall-like. All bets are off once Labor Day is over though cuz then it’s officially fall in my book! Cannot WAIT for some better running temps!

  2. I’m going apple picking for the first time this fall. I’m so excited!

  4. I love all these things too! I’ve been focused on traing programs for select races, so I hope to run some smaller ones after Lyon goal race this fall.

  8. I have a hard time with fall–while I do like the perfect running temps, I hate that summer is over and that winter is on its way. But there ARE great things to enjoy in the fall. I’m like you, too–it seems to be the best time to return to some good cooking!
