Easing into Autumn

 I run this beautiful route near my home, in the Berkshires a few times per week; it changes with the seasons. Now it is at its most gorgeous, as the foliage is beginning to peak, The other day, the light was perfect, sun peaking through the dense trees in one spot, and lighting up the colors on another section of the road. I just had to stop numerous times, to attempt and catch the beauty with my cell phone. These pictures do not do it justice however. I remember, when I am here, exactly why I love to run.

Josh Billings Runaground

I cannot believe I have never run this race. Five hundred teams participate in this bike / canoe / run triathalon. Our team, Berkshire South's Fantastic Four, had a blast and we are gearing up for next year! Twenty-seven mile bike ride, five mile canoe and six mile run, and we finished, all four of us! The motto of the Josh, "To finish is to win." Although the first place finishers completed the course in 2:18;04, and we toddled in at 3:44:13, finishing was winning. Next year...
