Fall Fresh Five to inspire

It’s Feel Like Fall. Here’s my fall fresh five.

Fall is rapidly closing in in New Hampshire. We had frost warnings last night. The leaves are starting to turn and kitchens everywhere  are filled with the smells of apple pie and apple crisp and fall comfort food.  My flip flops have been retired to the closet in favor of boots when I am not in my running shoes (except for on one of those amazing Indian Summer days). Just because fall is closing in doesn’t mean that the adventures will stop in fact I am inspired more than ever to get out and go after my goals.

During the next weeks I have many race adventures planned. Here are the races on my schedule (although some may not happen, we’ll see!) What races do you have planned?

  1. Lost a Lot Trail Race. A Day to Celebrate Chad Denning. 7 mile trail race. This weekend.
  2. Kingdom Marathon. Doin’ the Dirt – Pie to Pie – Run – Bike – Hike. Yup! 26.2 miles! October 5th, the day after my birthday!
  3. Attitash Hills and Hops 5K Trail Run (TBD) October 11th
  4. Keene Great Pumpkin Mile! With the Kids and then the Pumpkin Festival. (TBD) Ocotber 18th
  5. CHaD Hero Half Marathon. Please be sure to check out my fundraising page to raise money for the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth. October 26th

    4. I just can’t get enough of cows! Check out the local scenery from my small town on a gorgeous day when I was out trail running this week!

    5. Getting back into the swing of things with strength training this week!

Fresh five from around the web this week:

  1. There is an awesome new community for women runners that just went live on facebook this week. You should definitely check it out. It’s called ZELLE and was created by Runner’s World–”For women runners, by women runners. Because there is more to running than the training plan you use or how fast you can make it to the finish.”
  2. I love this quote from ZELLE
    "Forward is forward"  Zelle

    “Forward is forward” Zelle

    3. Rowing is the new spinning!?!?!? I guess I was ahead of the trend when I rowed in high school and college! Read more about this HERE.

    5. True Story. This actually happened at Reach the Beach New Hampshire!
