Yay fall is here! I'm a lover of all things autumn. The smell in the air, the shorter days, the weather, the colourful landscapes, thanksgiving, Kyle's birthday. You name it, I love it. Just looking at the mums and pumpkins all lined up outside of the grocery store gets me happy, and I'm not easily impressed. Just ask my husband or the guys in the kitchen at work! On Friday the boys and I will take our annual trip up to Springridge Farm to get our pumpkins and play on the haystacks(..........yes my kids are teenagers.........you got something to say?) and I will pull out all of my gardens and put out our Halloween decorations.

trying to push Noah off here.....
But in order to welcome my favourite month, October with open arms I need to say goodbye to September. Goodbye first day of school, 6am sunrise, the 203km that I ran and the Oakville half marathon where I ran my new personal best. Goodbye university fair, although I'm afraid that won't be the last that I see of you as Kyle gets ready to fill out his university applications and starts to dream of days where he doesn't have to listen to me tell him to pick up his socks and get to bed. Goodbye 27km run in sideways rain. Probably you I won't miss so much. And saddest of all.......goodbye tank tops. I love each and every one of you. Until we meet again next spring. Now bring on the long sleeves, hockey games and morning runs in the dark! And the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon too!
