It’s fall … new goals for new season!

I hope that you’ve had a great summer!  As awesome as summer is, fall definitely wins the prize as my favorite season.  I am SO excited for sweaters, soup, pumpkin dishes and the leaves to change colors.  Seriously, I have a bunch of soup recipes that I can’t wait to try as soon as the temperatures drop a bit.  I just have a hard time eating soup when it’s still above 90 degrees outside…

The Runner Awakens … the medal!

Hi everyone!  A little while ago I told you about Level Up Virtual Runs and an upcoming race called The Runner Awakens.  If you missed the post, you can read it here.  As I mentioned in the previous post, virtual runs are a great way to add races to a busy schedule since you are in control of the when and where of the race.  I chose to run my race outside using a GPS watch to keep track of my distance.  You can also run inside on the treadmill – whatever works best for you.

My race medal arrived and it’s fantastic!!


Be sure to check out Level Up Virtual Runs’ website for upcoming races and other fantastic medals!
