Several weeks ago my DC pals Cynthia, Courtney and me previewed “FALL” as our Friday Five topic. So today we’re getting a little more specific with “Favorite Fall Activities”. Happy Friday on this first official week of Fall! While summer is synonymous with beaches and fruity drinks, fall is synonymous with…. find out right here 🙂
ONE: 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 😉 It’s all about long sleeves and thumbholes – simply perfect!
TWO: 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 🙂 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: 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 😉 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 🙂
FIVE: 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:
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?
