Friday Five: Favorite Fall Activities

Several weeks ago my DC palsย Cynthia, Courtneyย and me previewed “FALL” as our Friday Five topic. ย So today we’re getting a little more specific with “Favorite Fall Activities”. Happy Friday on this first official week of Fall! ย While summer is synonymous with beaches and fruity drinks, fall is synonymous with…. find out right here ๐Ÿ™‚ย FridayFive

ONE: ย Running. I know, I know, easy way out – but this is a running blog after all! I love when fall comes around because the weather makes it the PERFECT season for running outside. No worries about getting up at the crack of dawn to beat the heat or any of that nonsense ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s all about long sleeves and thumbholes – simply perfect!

TWO: ย Hiking and leaf peeping! And actually the photo you see above was taken in the White Mountains of NH 2 falls ago. A friend of mine and I went road tripping to New England and did a lot of climbing, hiking and walking ๐Ÿ™‚ how beautiful is this?! Hoping to explore a little of what the DC area (particularly Great Falls – I know I keep saying it!) has to offer.

THREE: ย Apple Picking. My love affair with apples has increased as I’ve gotten older. Not sure why but it is my go-to fruit these days. I cannot wait to go apple picking, drink some cider, hopefully find some apple spice doughnuts ๐Ÿ˜‰ and just enjoy the crisp air and great outdoors. DC’ers any recommendations on where to go???

FOUR: Watching Football. And not just “watching” football but traveling and “watching” football. My travel partner in crime and I have already purchased our tickets to two road games this fall (post marathon of course). Yeah, wreaking Steelers havoc all over the U S of A ๐Ÿ™‚

FIVE: ย Couch cuddling. No one is happier than me that in peak training time the weather has gotten cooler. Because in addition to running in much more ideal conditions, I also have a built in excuse for doing this:

Why yes, that is a Steelers blankie :)

Whether it’s movies, football or back in action Fall TV the best fall activity for me is absolutely laying on the couch and vegging out. Yes, welcome fall indeed…

What are some of your favorite fall activities?! TGIF! What’re your weekend plans?ย

  1. Yes to all of this! I love running in the fall – perfect weather. I hope it sticks around for a while… Chicago often goes from summer to winter, but since summer was fairly tame, I’m hoping this cool weather goes through November or December ๐Ÿ˜‰ (wishful thinking). It’s also perfect weather for snuggling on the couch with some tea or hot cider and a good book or movie ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. LOVE that fall foliage picture–this is my FAVORITE time of the year, particularly for that reason! ๐Ÿ™‚ My bf & I are actually planning a road trip the week of Columbus Day Weekend to Stowe VT and Whites Mountain–and saw your post and thought, OMG that fall foliage! Any tips/suggestions on where to go, what hikes to do in that area and where to stay would be GREATLY appreciated! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks and keep up the awesome training!
