I stayed in bed for as long as I could, getting a full play by play of Ireland’s World Cup Rugby match via text, and wishing the person sending the texts were there with me to keep me warm.
I finally got out of bed, bundled up in my warmest running toga, and then put on the Winter Wellness gear I’d purchased only yesterday.
Yes, Modern Philosophers, I had a sense that Snow Miser was on his way.
Even though I was literally freezing my butt off on my run, I did come across some gorgeous Fall Foliage that I wanted to share. This is just one more reason why it is always smart to run with a full camera crew…
Did I happen to mention that I bought a bright orange sweatshirt and matching hat to both keep me warm and safe on cold Winter mornings?
When I run before work, it is pitch black during the Winter months, so I wanted to dress in a bright color to protect myself from drivers.
And from the Zombie Hunters.
Zombies have a tendency to wander into town during the colder months, and if I’m having a bad morning on the road, I trudge along like a Zombie on its last legs.
Better safe than sorry!
I know I ruined some of the photos by adding my ugly mug to the shot, but my sponsors demand that I put myself in the pictures.
According to research, I’m what draws people to the blog, so the camera crew is under strict orders to frame me in every shot.
Funny story…as I turned onto Eastern Avenue, dozens of runners came at me.
Apparently, there was a Color Run going on along my usual running route, and I had no idea. Luckily, I was able to dodge the kids who were pelting the runners with paint.
Of course, all decked out in orange, I brought some amazing color to the Color Run!
I bet Sweaty Pumpkin is now going to be a very popular Halloween Costume!
I bet they change their colors eventually.
They always do…
I’m just glad I don’t get too many leaves on The Great Lawn of The House on the Hill as I really hate raking, and the interns always whine when I make them do it.
I also fired the camera operator who ruined the shot for you.
I’m terribly sorry you had to put up with such negligence, Modern Philosophers.
So that’s my quick account of this morning’s run and the gorgeous, but very limited foliage I came across along the way.
Have the leaves turned in your neck of the woods? Do you like to go out and look at the Fall Foliage? Have you ever been to Maine to check out the brilliant colors of Autumn?
