It’s just starting to feel like fall. Let’s celebrate with some coffee. I’ve got pumpkin spice, chicory, and Pilão.

Thursday was a long day. I drove up to Raleigh and stopped in at Quail Ridge Books to pick up my signed copy of Caitlin Doughty’s Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?, which came with an enamel pin!

Running this week has been better thanks to falling temperatures, but I need to make better food choices. My last to long runs found me stranded. Not a pleasant situation.
What have you been up to?
