Photo Phriday

Last Saturday was a perfect day for running... A crisp snap in the air, and that wonderful fall smell of leaves, the lake and moist earth.

My sister and I had a 6.5 mile run scheduled, but as we set out, we set our sights a little higher than that.  Since we'd already run a 10K a few weeks prior, we figured we could add some more distance in an effort to build up to a half marathon we want to do in November.

And so we set off, aiming for at least 6.5 miles, but "hopefully 8".

These Canadian geese seem not to notice that fall is here and winter is fast approaching.
Shouldn't they be in a V formation, somewhere over Virginia?

Even these sunflowers haven't gotten the memo...

The beautiful Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion, closed for the season.

The lake knows it's fall...

See that windmill waaaay off in the distance?  We started beyond even that!
We set a reasonable pace, and before we knew it, we'd already gone 4 miles.  So much for turning back for anything shorter than an 8 miles!  Now, that's how you know you're enjoying your run.

We just registered for our next race last night.  Downsview Half Marathon, here we come!
