Ah yes, Labor Day weekend… I always say this signifies summers “Last Rites”. Even though the season doesn’t officially end for a few more weeks, for all intents and purposes (with kids going back to school and pools closing) welcome to FALL!!
In honor of the impending change in seasons, Courtney, Cynthia and I chose “Fall Preview” for this weeks Friday Five theme. What’re your plans, what’re you looking forward to, what’s happening? Join us this and every week!
Now as for me I am not letting summer go down without a fight. I will be running the Rock n’ Roll Virginia Beach half this weekend and enjoying the Atlantic Ocean breeze and sand one last time with some fabulous blogging peeps (see you soon Maria and Abby!) I am looking forward to fall though and here are just a few reasons why:
ONE: Reason numero uno is a biggie, MARINE CORPS MARATHON!!! I’ll wait for a later post to detail where I think I am in terms of training and preparedness but I’m certainly looking forward to this milestone run.
TWO: Dare I say, football?! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know I am a HUGE Steelers fan and if summer has to end, well happy that football comes with it! And in true Mar fashion I already have a couple of road trips planned for some away games (c’mon, you know I can’t stay put for very long!)
THREE: Preparing for back to school. “I’m going back, back, back to school again. Oh oh I wanna go, back to schoooool” (I will buy dinner for the first person who knows where this song lyric is from!!) I’m keeping mum on the details of the program I’ve applied to (for now) but I just received my acceptance letter and will start next Spring. I’ll need these next few months post marathon to get all my little ducks in a row. Hmm, do I need a book bag? 🙂 Do they still call them that?
FOUR: My summer was extremely busy with work and travel and other things. Right now marathon training is taking over everything else. However, I have been working on my plans for formally offering run coaching services which I look to implement in the days and weeks to come. And number three has a little something to do with this 😉
FIVE: Several weeks ago I mentioned sitting on a conference call with the EleVen By Venus team to preview the Fall 2014 collection. Part of the collection, Herringbone, went live that week. I also mentioned that I hoped you liked RED because the Vintage Floral collection has lots of it AND was just released on the EleVen site (Venus has also been sporting it throughout the US Open!) Good thing today is payday for me (or perhaps not). Use code Team11MarA for 10% off!!
What’s on your fall agenda? What do you think of this RED?
