Summer days are gone to soon...
You shoot the moon and miss completely,
And now you're left to face the gloom
The empty room that once smelled sweetly
Of all the flowers you've plucked if only
You knew the reason
Why you had to each be lonely
Or was it just the season?
Now the fall is here again
You can't begin to give in
It's all over
When the snow comes rolling through
You're rolling too with some new lover
Will you think of times you told me
That you knew the reason
Why we had to each be lonely
It was just the season.
I will miss you even if you are leaving me for another lover.
Don't forget me, my loneliness will be awaiting your return next year.
Put in a good word with Old Man Winter,
tell him to play nice this year.
On a real note...
So now I am in MAJOR countdown mode for the Chicago marathon. We are in the teens here folks, 18 days! How did this all pass so fast? How is it late September where I am finishing week 16 of this training cycle and gearing up for my most exciting race yet this year? Whooeee, I feel like I have made so much PROGRESS this year to get where I am at this very moment for this next race.
And it feels so good.
With taper lingering around me and October 9th just 18 sleeps away, it's time to start getting a game plan together. My biggest challenge right now is marathon attire. If anyone has ever visited Chicago in the fall, then you may know that the weather here is kind of like a freak show. One day it could be 75 and sunny and the next it could be 35 with snow flurries. This makes it really difficult to plan ahead with a race day outfit. Will I need head-to-toe spandex, or will I be sporting major SWASS in just a sports bra and shorts?
This is what I have worked out so far:
This lovely top from Lululemon. Love it. Super comfy and cute.
While I think the necklace may be cute too,
I will be leaving that at home on race morning.
These shorts from Lululemon as well. Really the only selling point for these shorts would be the pockets.
I need a place to put gu, gum, headphones, and possibly chapstick.
There are 3 pockets in these bottoms,
and they are the best shorts I have ever owned.
