I know that Fall is quickly upon us, but I am really going to miss you summer. You’re my favourite season and I just don’t know how to quit you. (wait, wasn’t that a line from Brokeback Mountain?) Anyways….. Get ready for the Pumpkin Spice invasion. Kind of like the British invasion, only doused in … More Falling Ahead to Autumn Training
I set off on a nature hike this afternoon instead of going to HIIT. It was a beautiful day and I felt the need to be outside in fresh air. The trails were long and winding.

Tomorrow is back to the grind. Back to routine and back to business. Back to work. I’m looking forward to it.
