Here we are...
We made it through Thanksgiving, and November is winding down.
With a new month knocking on the door, it's time to pay a quick visit to the Runfessional and come clean on a few things. Anyone care to join me for this monthly "sole-cleansing" ritual?

'Tis the season of giving thanks!
Let me just say I believe we should reflect on our blessings and give thanks on the daily. It's a given, though, the Thanksgiving holiday prompts us to dig a bit deeper and appreciate the things around us even more.
And here we are, with another Thanksgiving in our midst...

Many runners proclaim fall as their favorite season.
This past week, almost had me understanding why. I mean, the temps were in the 50's for the majority of the week! Although we had daily wind (I ask you, "What's new?"), the sunshine was simply magnificent. It felt more like early fall than pre-winter. Momma N must have been indulging in some naughty beverage(s), but she "righted" herself once the weekend arrived.
No doubt, she likes to keep us guessing...

Well, this will go down (quite literally, LOL) as a race to remember.
Over the river (actually, a few creeks) and through the woods...to the finish line we go. Yes, such was the game plan for the Living History Farms Race.
Although this cross-country "off-road" race had long been on my radar, this past weekend was my first time actually taking part. Boy, oh boy, was it an adventure!

Although I'd much prefer summer, this (currently) is my kind of fall!
It's kinda sorta feeling like (very) "early" fall, though, instead of the "mid-season" showing on the calendar. After several days of "mid-winter" conditions, the week prior, these current temps are feeling a bit balmy. And, the good news? They're expected to stick around for most of next week as well!
My strategy? Enjoy it while it's here. After all, this is Iowa...

Well how do you like that!
Momma N can't decide if it's still Fall (as the calendar indicates), or if Winter should arrive early. It's warm, then it's freezing cold, then it feels like Spring has sprung...all in a matter of days.
Honestly, as if acclimating to the change of seasons isn't tough enough, this back-and-forth business is crazy. As an outdoor enthusiast, I find my body is in a constant state of confusion as to what feels comfortable, LOL.
This week really had me questioning a lot of things, and not just in terms of what to wear...
