First Saturday of Fall

Last week was really crazy at work. Most everyone was feeling exhausted only half way through and I was not alone when I was still at my desk at 7pm last night. I’m SO glad it’s the weekend! How about you?

I didn’t get my weekly Five for Friday post up but I have a few minutes before I head out to watch some Spartan Football. This is what Fall Saturday’s are about, right? College football!

Oh yeah, and running and farmers markets!

After my run this morning I had my first bowl of oatmeal for the season – simple with just flax, chia, and 1tsp each of PB and maple syrup – and coffee.

Then I headed out to the Union Square Greenmarket for some Fall deliciousness. I came home with a butternut squash, pears, apples, kale, green pepper, purple potatoes, green beans, and an eggplant! Great stuff, right?

Woody left a bit ago for the bar where tons of MSU alumni get together to watch the football games. As an alumni club board member it’s his ‘job’ to represent the club there and recruit new members, sell shirts to raise money for our scholarship fund and coordinate with the bar. He loves it, but he has to get there two hours before game time. I’m leaving in a little bit and will get there about an hour before (thank goodness for the reserved Board table!) Check him out – all decked out in State gear! Doesn’t he look like he could be an assistant coach?

Have a great weekend and enjoy some college football!

  • What are you up to this weekend?

I’m running (4miles today, 7 tomorrow), enjoying the first weekend of Fall, and watching Football!

  • Are you racing this weekend?

I’m not, but will be next weekend! (and I have an awesome announcement coming up next week!)

  • What’s your favorite Fall treat?

Mine used to be fresh apple cider and a donut, but now since I can’t eat gluten, I guess it’s just the apple cider. Still, not bad!

I love football season - it makes fall even more awesome! I helped a friend move for a couple of hours yesterday and then watched football. I was pleased that my Sooners won a tough road game. Today I went for a 7 mile run and then spent the rest of the day working on class prep for the week with NFL games on in the background.
