Since I shared some looooooong posts last week (Runner's World Festival Recaps Parts one, two, and three), today's will be short and sweet!
Tuesday: 2.26 miles, 12:10 pace
Saturday: 3.1 miles, 12:36 pace, 250 feet of elevation
Sunday: Strength Circuit of my own creation including squats, planks, and back extensions
So, I know I'm late to the party on this, but I just discovered podcasts this weekend and holy crap, I'm hooked! I actually started listening to "Serial" (again, yes, I know I'm like a year late on this one, ha!) on Sunday while I was working out and it was such a different- and positive- experience from the music I usually listen to. I also checked out Rylee's podcast, ManBunRun, and listened to his interview with Bart Yasso. I am more in love than ever with Bart after hearing him share his thoughts on the running community on Rylee's podcast. He's such a great ambassador for our sport.
Best run this week was the 5k on Saturday morning with my husband. Anytime we get to run together is a good run 😍
Race weekend + eating out every meal while traveling + lots of post-race beers = usually, a gain for me. BUT NOT THIS WEEK! I'm actually down .6 from last week! The numbers on the scale have been a constant struggle for me since our last cruise in March... but I'm feeling super encouraged with how things have gone the last few weeks.

Quote of the Week
I took the picture below while home at my parent's house this weekend- there's a tree in the backyard that is just gorgeous this time of year. There's something about fall that has always signaled new beginnings for me; like everything old is about to be let go and released to give space for new things to take root and grow. I found this May Sarton quote and thought it perfectly summed up where I am this week; ready to see what new things will unfold in the next season of my weight loss, training, and life.
