As the seasons get ready to turn, turn, there is a reason I’m kicking September off with a bang. Now that I can check “don’t sink in a triathlon” off my list, I am focused on training for the relay Half Ironman in Augusta in one month. I’ll be doing the half marathon portion, Andrew will be biking and we have a buddy that’s a phenomenal swimmer. Am I nervous? Psssh, not after this weekend.
Training for anything can get boring and mundane and in an effort to keep my training sporadic and enjoyable this fall (that’s right, it’s almost FALL!), I’ve signed up for some group fitness classes at my gym. I am looking forward to having a proper instructor, trying new things, and adding some relaxing evening workouts in the mix with yoga and pilates. I enjoy a good old fashioned DVD, but sometimes you need a group to push you further. Some are even in the evening, and we all know how I feel about evening workouts, blah!
Tennis is back in action with a the U.S. Open. I always enjoy checking out the duds the athletes wear on the court, from Williams’ skirty show to Nadal’s ability to make neon yellow look hawt. There is a true tennis stud with style and flare…
In case you are under a rock, Federer has more than good looks, the man’s between the leg shots are ridiculous. (Yes, that’s what she said.)
I know we have to get through Labor Day, but the signs of the season change are everywhere and I’m giddy as all get out. Sure as sugar, Starbucks is bringing back their Pumpkin Spice Latte (not a huge fan, shh) and before we know it pumpkins will be everywhere. I’ve already spotted my first Halloween magazine. From the apple orchards to college football, I can’t get enough of the changing seasons. Lookout, I’m a HUGE holiday nut.
Anybody checking out the U.S. Open?
What are some of your favorite signs of fall?
