Something new

So, this is a totally random post, but one that I was inspired to write as I was pushing my way through the last mile of my run this morning.

See, I've slacked off of my runs for the last week or so since I came down with a nasty cold and have been spending the hour between 6 and 7am snoozing (or hacking and wheezing as the case may have been) in my warm bed rather than out pounding the pavement in my neighborhood.

Funny thing though, as I hopped off my porch this morning and set out to see the neighborhood in all it's early morning charm, I immediately noticed that something was different. And, different outside of the fact that it was lighter (time change) and that I was now fairly out of shape.

At first, I was focused on breaking back into my old pace and didn't notice the little changes, but then I started to see all the new things that the fall brings to my new little corner of the world.

Up until we moved here I'd always clocked my miles in front of SportsCenter as I pounded the treadmill at the gym. This is the first fall I've spent running those same miles outside, where leaves crunch under my NB's, my breath floats around my face in white bursts and decorations go up on front doors and archways in every fashion.

I have to say, it is a whole different world when your morning routine involves an experience like I had this morning, and I'm hoping it will inspire me to peel back the cozy covers and head out into the chilly morning more often.

Crunch crunch.

[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
