Gobble Gobble

Today in AZ it finally felt like Fall. The morning was crisp and chilly and dark. The cyclists were wearing their arm warmers. And the after-the-kids-depart morning stayed overcast and grey. I loved it.

It's times like these that SETTING A GOAL is a good move. Face it, who wants to wake up and run on a dark canal or ride in the freezing cold? With Fall comes Winter, and with the dropping temps, it feels like it's time to take that long winter's nap. Setting a goal will keep you focused and scheduled and just might eliminate those mornings when you want to crawl back under that toasty down comforter.

Races give you an extra incentive to run. Signing up for a 5-K or 10-K is a great goal for anyone. Next month there is a Turkey Trot in almost any town in the U S of A. There are marathons in Phoenix, and half marathons in Queen Creek. Get to active.com and check it out for yourself.

And take along a friend. When you have to meet at some crazy hour to get in a long run, it's nice not to do it alone.

So Goals and Friends. That's what I got today. It works. I promise.

Que lindo es sonar despierto.
How lovely it is to dream while you are awake.
