Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.

Fall...Fast Forwarded

Leaf Filled Path

Just as the leaves were falling, and changing color, we were hit with freezing temperatures! There was a chance of SNOW last night. (luckily that didn't happen here) 

The sun is so very misleading. It was 32 degrees this morning!
I almost didn't go out for a run, almost. But I did.
And I rocked it. 
It felt good, and somehow my pace was better than it has been in, well, ever maybe. That I am not sure of, but definitely recently. 

I just may be ready for the Jingle Bell Run. 43 days left and there is still time to donate, click here!

But seriously, so many leaves with the chill doesn't make ya feel like raking. If only we could do this.

  2. oh, to be able to hire someone to take care of the leaves......
    We hired someone to get the yard in shape when we first moved in here. The lawn hadn't been mowed or tended to for the entire spring and summer, then we moved it.

    Since then we have tended to it ourselves, and SO many leaves, all on our property. A good workout I guess, but I dread doing it.

    I wish there were little green guys raking it under the
